2006 5 Dollar 1/10-oz Gold Eagle Proof NGC PF70 - Saint-Gaudens Label
How Do You Celebrate 18 Years of a 20-Year-Old Design?
It may seem like an obscure math problem or riddle, but it's actually just a lesson in numismatic history.
Way back in 1985, the U.S. Congress approved the creation of the American Gold Eagles and Gold Eagle Proofs as a way for citizens to safely and easily purchase gold for their portfolios and collections, respectively. The first coins and proofs were released in 1986, but it wasn't until two years later that the most affordable proof option, the $5 Gold Eagle Proof, became available!
So even though this coin's design, which features the famous Saint-Gaudens vision of Lady Liberty, dates back a whopping 20 years, this particular proof has really only been available for 18!
Each immaculate proof proof will arrive in 91.67% fineness and contain a tenth-ounce of pure gold, graded as being in perfect Proof 70 (PF70) condition by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. To celebrate its incredible design, NGC also awarded these proofs with their special Saint-Gaudens label, featuring images of the designer's portrait and signature.
Whether you want to celebrate 20 years of an incredible program of 18 years of tenth-ounce proofs, this is the coin for you. Add one to your collection today!
