1999-W 5 Dollar 1/10-oz Gold Eagle NGC MS69
1999-W $5 Tenth Ounce Gold Eagle NGC MS69
This 1999 $5 Tenth-Ounce Gold Eagle was struck at the West Point Mint and grades near-perfect Mint-State-69 (MS69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). Congress authorized the striking of Silver and Gold American Eagles in 1985, and the coins were first minted in 1986. The U.S. Mint took a page out of their own history book when they designed the Gold Eagles. In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to redesign America's double eagle $20 gold piece. His design features Miss Liberty boldly stepping toward the viewer, carrying a lit torch and an olive branch of peace. Since the new eagle was to be a one Troy ounce gold coin similar to the old double eagle, this image of Liberty was adopted by the mint for the obverse of the Gold Eagle. The reverse of the gold coin features a family of American Eagles, emphasizing the importance of the family as the strength of our nation. The U.S. government guarantees the weight, purity, and precious metals content of U.S. Mint Gold Eagles. They are recognized and traded around the world. You can even include them in your Individual Retirement Account (IRA). Gold Eagles are the most popular U.S. Mint coins in America today. In fact, in the last few years, eagles have become so popular that the mint at times has been unable to produce enough to satisfy the demand. Order your Gold Eagles here today!
