Why purchase this $10 American 2018 1/4 oz. Gold Eagle?

Iconic Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
On the obverse of this coin is the design that many consider the most beautiful design in numismatic history. Known as the Saint-Gaudens, it is named for the man who designed it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Liberty stands at the center with her torch of freedom in one hand and an olive branch, a universal symbol of peace, in the other. She stands with one foot elevated upon a rock as the wind blows her garment and long hair. The Capitol Dome is rendered in miniature in the lower left, and the morning sun's rays emerge from beyond the horizon. Fifty stars encircle the image.
Miley Busiek designed the reverse for this series. Honoring the national bird, it features a male eagle bearing an olive branch as he returns to his nest. There, his mate awaits as she nestles their young.
