Random Date $50 1 oz Gold Eagle
Here's your chance to secure one of the world's most popular Gold Coin, the U.S. $50 Gold Eagle with a bit of a twist. When you order you'll receive whatever date is next in the queue, and that will be any date all the way back to 1986, the first year they were struck. Earlier dated Eagles can be incredibly difficult to find, and for those who collect them by date, this offer could fill in a few holes in your collection.
Prior to 1986, the U.S. Mint struck its last gold coins in 1933. For decades it was illegal for U.S. citizens to own gold, with the exception of collector coins. In 1967, the world's first modern gold bullion coin, the South Africa Krugerrand was struck. In 1982, the Gold Panda followed.
In 1985 Congress and President Reagan joined forces to authorize the first Gold Eagles. In addition to its 1 oz. gold content, the $50 Gold Eagle also has its weight and purity guaranteed by the United States government, and these guarantees are stamped right into the surface of the coins. The $50 Gold Eagle is struck in 33.93 grams, consisting of .9167 gold, .03 silver and .0533 copper. It has a legal tender value of $50.
A Beautiful Gold Coin Design
As his term in office grew short, President Theodore Roosevelt undertook a mission. He felt our U.S. coin designs were drab and uninspired. He asked the most famous sculptor in the country, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, to design a new $20 Gold Double Eagle.
When Roosevelt first saw the coin, he was flabbergasted, declaring the coin to be the most beautiful coin struck since the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans. It was, he felt, perhaps the most beautiful gold coin ever struck.
The U.S. Mint reached back through time and brought Saint-Gaudens obverse design into the present where it's gained a whole new lease on life. It shows Miss Liberty striding toward the viewer, holding the torch of Liberty high in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The sun's rays frame her with the U.S. capitol building in the distance behind her.
