Brilliant Uncirculated 30th Anniversary $25 Gold Eagles from the U.S. Mint

With the introduction of the Gold Krugerrand in 1967 and the Gold Panda in 1982, the world got hooked on gold coins. But, until 1984, the U.S. hadn't minted a gold coin since the early 1930s. So, in 1985 the U.S. Congress authorized the U.S. Gold Eagle program. The $25 coins were minted in 91.7% gold, with each coin containing a full half-ounce of pure gold. The first coins were struck in 1986. For the coin's obverse, the mint adapted the image of Miss Liberty from perhaps the most famous previous U.S. gold coin, the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle. For the reverse, they chose the image of a family of eagles in their nest. When they were minted in 1986, no one knew how popular these Quarter-ounce Gold Eagles would become.

Today, after thirty years, the 2016 half-ounce U.S. Gold Eagles are now the world standard for gold coins. With their weight, purity and metal content guaranteed by the U.S. government and stamped right into the surface of the coin, they're your standout gold coin choice.
