Why add this perfectly graded $5 Gold 2008-W Bald Eagle Commemorative coin to your collection?

The Bald Eagle was removed from the federal list of threatened and endangered species on August 9, 2007, due to the conservation efforts enabled by the Endangered Species Act of 1973. In celebration of the 35th Anniversary of the Act, and the eagle's new status, the U.S. Mint issued three commemorative coins to honor the achievement: a copper-nickel clad half dollar, a Silver Dollar, and this magnificent $5 gold coin. The 21.6 mm diameter 2008-W Bald Eagle was struck at the West Point Mint from 0.242 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold. Final mintage of the uncirculated strike release of the coin is reported to be just 15,009.

Gorgeous patriotic imagery

Two young Bald Eagles adorn the obverse, perched on a tree branch. Susan Gamble's design was sculpted by Phebe Hemphill, and includes the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2008."

A detailed replica of the current Great Seal of the U.S. appears on the reverse, as sculpted by Don Everhart. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE DOLLARS."
