Why add this $50 1998-W American Gold Eagle to your collection?

The American Gold Eagle is a part of the U.S. Mint's American Eagle Bullion program, its obverse imagery representing a revival of a cherished coin design from the early 20th century. The 1998 proof issue Gold Eagle is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold with a final reported mintage of 31,427. The 32.7 mm diameter coin was minted at the West Point branch of the U.S. Mint, created from gold acquired exclusively from U.S. sources.

Classic 1907 Double Eagle Design

The obverse portrays an elegant Lady Liberty surrounded by fifty stars, walking ahead of a rising sun; she proudly carries an olive branch and torch of freedom in her outstretched arms. The design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens includes the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "1998" and "W."

The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, illustrates a glorious bald eagle holding an olive branch returning to his beautifully detailed nest and family.

Nearly Perfect Proof 69 Ultra Cameo Condition

Proof blanks are specially treated to produce superbly struck coins, such as this 1998-W 1 oz. American Gold Eagle with an Ultra Cameo (UC) certification. The Ultra Cameo designation refers to the extraordinary visual contrast between the textured and mirrored surfaces. This coin is encapsulated in a protective holder labeled with the virtually flawless grade of Proof 69 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

This magnificent $50 coin will make a stunning addition to your collection of American Gold Eagle Proofs! Don't delay, purchase from MCM now!
