2017-W 50 Dollar 1-oz Gold Eagle Proof NGC PF69UCAM First Releases 225th Anniversary
Gold Eagle Proofs Are Back for 2017!
Celebrating its 31st anniversary in 2017, the United States Mint's Gold Eagle is among the most beloved gold bullion coins on the planet. Artistically brilliant and perfectly collectible, each yearly release commands the attention of buyers around the world. But when it comes to proof versions of this numismatic classic, their annual production numbers are usually a fraction of the mintage of their uncirculated counterparts. Add in the fact that Proof Gold Eagles are highly sought after by collectors and you have a classic recipe for intense demand!
That's why we're excited to announce the return of the $50 1-oz Gold Eagle Proof for 2017! Produced at the West Point Mint, each legal-tender coin is struck in one ounce of .9167 pure gold and exhibits the same beloved designs of Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the obverse and Miley Busiek on the reverse. However, unlike Uncirculated Gold Eagles, each proof is struck multiple times using specially prepared dies and polished planchets. The result is a Gold Eagle with crisp, stunning details and lustrous, mirrored surfaces.
Not only that, but your $50 1-oz Gold Eagle Proof will arrive to you with these additional features!
- Your coin will be graded Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your almost-flawless $50 1-oz Gold Eagle Proof will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections -- well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In fact, many collectors prefer the PF69UC grade since it certifies recognized collector status for just a small premium above ungraded proofs.
- Your $50 1-oz Gold Eagle Proof will also be certified First Releases (FR) by NGC, meaning that it was among the first struck by the mint and was certified within the first 30 days of issue. Collectors seek out these proofs because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are stuck later. Also, the population of proofs labeled First Releases is only a fraction of the total mintage!
- In addition, your proof will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with a white display core -- giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- Finally, all of your proof's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case's special 225th Anniversary label, celebrating the founding of the U.S. Mint in 1792 and featuring an image of the first mint in Philadelphia.
Don't wait -- these collectors' favorites have been tremendously popular in the past, and we're expecting them to barely touch the shelves in our vaults before they're sent out again! Put one (or several) in your cart now!
