My tinfoil is tight, so I like to make sure what I ordered is actually what I got.
The published specifications for American Gold Eagles are as follows:
Weight: 33.933 g
Diameter: 32.7 mm
Thickness: 2.87 mm
So today I measured 4 of these, and this is the range I have found:
Weight: 33.94 g - 33.96 g
Diameter: 32.69 mm - 32.73 mm (the diameter will vary around a single coin by as much as this)
Thickness: 2.794 - 2.845 mm (measuring the edge of the coin, again, it may vary by this much depending where on the coin the thickness is measured).
Anyone else take similar measurements? I'd be interested in results to compare with what I've found. I think the measurements I've got are very reasonable for these coins.
