Why purchase this flawless first year of issue Burnished $5 Gold Eagle?

2006 marked a milestone year for the American Gold Eagle coin series. In celebration of its 20th year of issue, the U.S. Mint added the Uncirculated Burnished version to its Gold Eagle products. The new collector's version was struck with the "W" Mint mark to differentiate it from the bullion issue. Having a total reported mintage of 20,643 from West Point, the 16.51 mm diameter 2006-W $5 Gold Eagle was struck from specially burnished blanks of 1/10 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold.

Classic American Gold Eagle design

The obverse depicts Lady Liberty stepping forward with the sun radiating behind her. She grasps a flaming torch in her right hand, an olive branch in her left. "LIBERTY" curves overhead with "2006" and "W" at the bottom right. The design honors the highly acclaimed $20 Gold Double Eagle designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907.

The artistry of Miley Busiek is featured on the reverse, which illustrates the exquisitely detailed scene portraying a magnificent eagle in flight, carrying an olive branch to his nesting family below.
