The face value is the value of a coin, stamp or paper money, as printed on the coin, stamp or bill itself by the minting authority. While the face value usually refers to the true value of the coin, stamp or bill in question it can sometimes be largely symbolic, as is often the case with bullion coins. For example, a one troy ounce American Gold Eagle bullion coin was worth and sold for about $1,200 USD during 2009 market prices and yet has a face value of only $50 USD.
