1986 5 Dollar 1/10-oz Gold Eagle NGC MS69
Your Collection Starts Here!
This is where it all began. No, not the Oprah Winfrey Show (though that also started in 1986); this numismatic milestone marked the beginning of the American Eagle Bullion Program. Created by the U.S. Congress, the program called for the creation of American Gold Eagles as a safe, convenient way to own precious metal that's government-guaranteed for weight, purity, and authenticity.
Naturally, demand was incredibly high for the new coins: despite a sales period of fewer than three months, the U.S. Mint sold more than a million one-ounce coins! Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the obverse of this coin features Lady Liberty as she strides confidently forward, torch in hand. On the reverse, Miley Busiek's work depicts an eagle as it returns to its nest, presenting an olive branch to its mate and hatchlings.
This incredible five-dollar American Gold Eagle contains 1/10 ounce of pure gold, is struck in 91.67% fineness and is graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as Mint State 69 (MS69), the second highest grade a coin can receive. And, as legal U.S. tender, they're not only great for display, but are also eligible for deposit into an Individual Retirement Account (IRA).
Whether its for a gift, your own collection, or some something to set aside for a rainy day, don't wait! Supplies of this highly sought-after coin are limited, so order yours today!
