Why make this Proof 69 Ultra Cameo 1988-P 1/4 oz. Proof Gold Eagle the next addition to your collection?

Each year, collectors around the world anticipate the release of new additions to the American Gold Eagle series. These coins from the U.S. Mint were first issued in 1986. The 1/4 oz. proof shown here was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1988. Some aren't aware of this, but 1988 was actually the first year that the proof version of the Gold Eagle was offered in 4 sizes. There were 98,028 of these coins minted.

Patriotic obverse and reverse by Saint-Gaudens and Busiek

This is a modern coin, but the design on the obverse is a classic. It was first used for the Double Eagle. Many consider this work by Augustus Saint-Gaudens to be the most beautiful design to ever appear on a U.S. coin.

Miley Busiek created the design found on the reverse. Two adult bald eagles can be seen here along with their offspring. One of the adults is about to land.

Certified Proof 69 Ultra Cameo by NGC

When this coin was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), it was carefully examined by their team of experts. It was certified as being in Proof 69 condition. This grade is for proof coins that are nearly free of imperfections. The Ultra Cameo designation was given to this coin as well for its visual contrast.
