Why buy this 2019 $50 American 1 oz Gold Eagle?
The American Gold Eagle series began in 1986 and quickly emerged as one of the world's favorite gold bullion coins. The popularity of the series stems from its iconic obverse design and the fact that it was for a long time the only gold bullion coin backed for weight and purity by the United States government. The coin was struck from one ounce of .9167 fine gold at the West Point Mint.
Traditional Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
The obverse features the highly acclaimed Saint-Gaudens design, which bears the name of the man who created it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

In the nest, his mate looks towards him as she nestles their young. Among the inscriptions on this face are the coin's weight, "1 OZ FINE GOLD," its face value,
