Why Make This NGC PF70 UC First Day of Issue 2016-W $5 1/10 oz. Proof American Gold Eagle with Gold Foil Label the Next Addition to Your Collection?
The proof issue of the American Gold Eagle is one of the most popular gold coins being struck by the US Mint today. Each one is made of .9167 fine gold, so the total weight of the coin is a bit higher than the actual gold weight. This 2016-W $5 proof Gold Eagle has an actual gold weight of 1/10 Troy oz. It was minted at the West Point branch of the US Mint and displays a “W” Mint mark. This proof is much more collectible than its bullion counterpart and is actually made specifically for collectors. The front shows a design that was originally used for the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle and the back displays a family of bald eagles at the nest.
This 2016-W $5 1/10 oz. proof Gold Eagle was immediately submitted to NGC, which is why it has the coveted First Day of Issue designation. Using their 70 point grading scale, the unbiased professionals at NGC gave this coin a perfect PF70 grade and the Ultra Cameo designation. To top things off, this proof Gold Eagle has a special gold foil label.
