Why add the 1996-W $25 Gold Eagle NGC Proof 69 Ultra Cameo to your collection?

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 1996-W $25 Gold Eagle coin at the high collector lever of Proof 69 Ultra Cameo. This example was struck to proof quality at the West Point Mint and Bullion Depository. The series was introduced in 1986 to the enthusiasm of collectors and stackers all over the world. The series is struck on .9167 fine gold planchets with this coin guaranteed to contain 1/2 oz AGW. The coin has a mintage of 35,058.

Two Magnificent Historic designs

The obverse of the coin features the torch-bearing image of the Goddess Columbia, also known as Liberty, as designed for the circulating $20 gold piece by famed Beaux-Arts sculptor and artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Artist Miley Busiek of the U.S. Mint designed the nesting eagle reverse.

Proof 69 Ultra Cameo example

Proof 69 graded examples are coveted collector coins that have a nearly flawless appearance. They have all of the positive attributes of strong strike and spectacular eye appeal that one expects in high grade collector coins AND they offer value. Ultra Cameo coins are the highest quality proofs available. These coins have the highly contrasted finish that results from the proof coin minting process. The raised design details appear frosty, while the negative space in the design remains highly reflective.
