Why add this 1996-W Proof 1 oz. Gold American Eagle coin to your collection?

The American Gold Eagle has been the official gold bullion coin of the United States since 1986. This $50 face value proof was produced at the U.S. Mint's West Point facility, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold (22 karat) with a diameter of 32.7 mm. The exceptional coin is among a final reported mintage of 36,153 carrying the date 1996 and the "W" Mint mark. All American Gold Eagle coins are eligible for inclusion in IRAs, with weight, purity and content guaranteed by the U.S. Government.

Extraordinary Detailed Imagery

The obverse portrays Lady Liberty encircled by fifty stars, as designed by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the 1907 Double Eagle. She confidently treads forward, carrying a torch aflame in her right hand and olive branch in her left. "LIBERTY," "1996" and "W" are inscribed.

Designed by Miley Busiek, the reverse features a magnificent bald eagle in flight, an olive branch held tightly in its talons; his mate and young hatchlings comfortably settled in a beautifully detailed nest in the foreground awaiting his return.

Professionally Graded by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation

This beautiful $50 Proof American Gold Eagle is graded a nearly perfect Proof 69 by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The Ultra Cameo (UC) designation refers to the remarkable quality of frosted and highly polished mirrored surfaces struck onto the coin.
