Why add this 2016 $10 1/4 oz. American Gold Eagle in GEM BU (with US Mint Display Box) to your collection?
This 2016 ¼ oz. American Gold Eagle makes the perfect option for a display piece in your home or office, as it combines what is widely acclaimed as one of the most beautiful designs ever to appear on a coin with the 30th anniversary of the American Gold Eagle. The popular design is taken from the famed American Double Eagle design of Augustus St. Gaudens. The image of Liberty takes up almost the full diameter of the coin from bottom to top. She holds her torch, which itself is large, out in front of her as she faces the holder. In her left hand is an olive branch, which she holds off to her side. Filling the bottom half of the coin are the rays of the rising sun, which emanate from the bottom. The reverse design features an eagle family, with the male, which carries an olive branch, set to land in its nest, where the mother guards her young. This coin is .9167 pure gold and weighs ¼ Troy oz. Both of those numbers have the backing of the United States government, making this a secure, liquid option.
