Why add this 1 oz. Mint State $50 Gold American Eagle to your gold coin collection?

This Gold American Eagle is a flawless example of the official gold bullion coin issued yearly from the United States Mint since 1986. The coin carries a face value of $50, is struck from 1 full Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold, and measures 32.7 mm in diameter. Interest in precious metals significantly dropped in 2000, following the potential Y2K crisis. Mintage for the 2000 $50 Gold Eagle was 433,319, a dramatic drop from 1999's mintage of 1,505,026.

Bold and beautiful imagery adorns this coin.

The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, portrays an American bald eagle returning to his family and superbly rendered nest, with an olive branch gripped in its talons. The obverse recreates Augustus Saint-Gaudens' 1907 Lady Liberty striding confidently with the rays of a rising sun behind while carrying an olive branch in her left hand and flaming torch in her right. The word "LIBERTY" stretches overhead with "2000" nestled within the sun's rays.
