Why Add This Proof 70 Ultra Cameo 1990-P 1/4 oz. Proof Gold Eagle to Your Collection?
The US Mint issued the first coins of the American Gold Eagle series in 1986. The $10 Gold Eagle shown here has a proof finish. It was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1990. Like other coins in this series, it's made of 22 karat gold. The actual gold weight of this proof is 1/4 troy oz. Compared to other years that this size was offered with a proof finish, this coin had a moderate mintage. There were 62,674 of these struck.
Modern and Classic Together
The obverse of this Gold Eagle displays a design that was originally used for the Double Eagle. It was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This scene depicts Liberty with her torch.
The reverse shows a modern design created by Miley Busiek just for this series. This side features a family of bald eagles at the nest. The actual gold weight and face value can be found on this side as well.
Proof 70 Ultra Cameo from NGC
To have this proof graded and encapsulated, it was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The experts there examined it carefully but couldn't find any flaws, which is why it was awarded the grade of Proof 70. Since this coin also exhibits a high level of visual contrast because of its proof finish, it also received the Ultra Cameo designation.
