Why add the 1998-W $5 Gold Eagle NGC PF69 UC to your collection?

This 1998-W $5 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle was evaluated and graded Proof 69 Ultra Cameo by industry leaders Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and has a low mintage of 48,428 coins.

The United States Mint’s flagship gold bullion program, the American Gold Eagle was introduced in 1986. The program has succeeded beyond the expectations of many in Numismatics. This $5 1/10 oz. gold coin was struck to proof quality at the West Point Branch of the US Mint. The gold weight and 22k purity are guaranteed by the US Government.

The obverse design is the iconic obverse from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Double Eagle, first introduced in 1907. A triumphant Liberty is standing with her torch of freedom raised in her right hand and the olive branch of peace in the left. She is seen in the rays of the dawn with the US Capitol building in the distant background to the lower left. The reverse design by the US Mint’s Miley Busiek features a male bald eagle carrying the olive brand of peace while in flight above the nest. In the nest are his eaglets and his mate.

The Proof 69 grade is reserved for coins with extraordinary eye appeal. The Ultra Cameo designation is given to coins with the most contrast between the frosted areas and the mirror-like areas of the coin.
