Why should you buy a 1987 $50 Proof Gold Eagle Graded PF70 by NGC?

Take a look at this beautiful 1 oz. Gold Eagle! Struck by the U.S. Mint in Westpoint in 1987, this Gold Eagle features a brilliant proof finish that greatly distinguishes it from the bullion issue. First produced in 1986, the Gold Eagle is the United States’ official gold bullion coin, designed for stackers. This proof version however, was designed for collectors to enjoy the classic design!

On the obverse of the Gold Eagle is a beautiful image Liberty, named “Standing Liberty.” This is the same design seen on the Double Eagle that was created by Augustus Saint Gaudens in the early 20th century. On the reverse is an image of an eagle landing in a nest, which was designed by Miley Busiek. Both of these designs are stunning, and show the great quality of American Minting.

This coin is a prized example of the 1987 Westpoint issued $50 Gold Eagle, as it was graded by NGC as a Proof 70 Ultra Cameo! This means they closely examined the coin under 5x magnification, and no flaws were found! The coin is in perfect condition! This is the highest grade that a proof coin can receive, and it goes to show the value of this 1 oz. Gold Eagle. The designation “Ultra Cameo” means that the proof strike has given such a sharp contrast to the coin by its mirrored and frosted sections, that it can appear almost black and white under certain lighting! You don’t want to miss this opportunity at one of the U.S. Mint’s first issues of the American Gold Eagle, in the highest possible grade! Don’t wait - buy yours now!
