Why add the Proof 69 Ultra Cameo 1990-W $50 Gold Eagle to your collection?

This 1990-W $50 Gold Eagle was given the Proof 69 grade and Ultra Cameo designation from third party grading experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). This coin was struck at the West Point branch of the U.S. Mint and continues the Gold Eagle series that was introduced in 1986. It was struck on a 22-karat gold planchet guaranteed to contain 1 oz. of gold. The mintage is a low 62,401 coins.

Timeless Saint-Gaudens obverse

The obverse of the coin features the magnificent full-length image of Lady Liberty designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 gold "Double Eagle." Liberty is featured holding the Torch of Enlightenment overhead in her right hand. She grasps the olive branch of Peace in her left. The reverse of the coin is equally remarkable. U.S. Mint designer Miley Busiek has designed an image featuring a male bald eagle in flight over his nest.

Spectacular Proof 69 Ultra Cameo quality.

Proof coins are struck with using a specialized process which includes polishing the dies and the planchets. It is this special handling that produces the highly desirable "cameo" finish which is an indication of quality. Cameo describes the contrast between the frosted devices and the deeply reflective field of the coin.
