2006 1 oz. Gold Eagle in PCGS MS70

The 2006 $50 Gold Eagle is part of a series first released by the United States Mint in 1986 and is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. The Gold Eagle is the first modern bullion coin to be authorized by the United States congress and is backed by the US Mint for its weight, content and purity. The design, popular among collectors, includes striking imagery that symbolizes American spirit and character. This 2006 $50 Gold Eagle is a proof version in Mint State condition and is exceptionally graded by PCGS. It is also a first strike, which is a coin issued in the first 30 days of the Mint’s release.

The coin’s obverse design features a rendition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens' full-length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Tiny stars that surround the design complement the sharp beams of sunlight shooting out around Lady Liberty’s torso.

The United States Gold Eagle Coins are often referred to as "American Gold Eagles" due to the image of a family eagles on the reverse. Designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, the reverse shows a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. The standard inscriptions are included.

American Eagle Gold Proof coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint bullion coins, have a limited mintage and are struck at the West Point Mint (but do not bear the "W" mint mark).

The 2006 $50 Gold Eagle is a proof version with an excellent numismatic grade. The classic, beloved design, low mintage, first strike status and gold content make this coin appealing to collectors and investors alike.
