The biggest sellers in this prestigious collection remain the largest and smallest sizes, which completely demonstrates the variety of buyers across different investment levels who are eager to get their hands on these special coins. Prior to its release, Americans struggled to make investments in physical precious metals, but overnight, the Gold Eagle series became an instant hit due to the fact that they perfectly embody the American spirit and our inherent culture found infused in all of our DNA.

During 1986, the price of gold started the year at a startling low value of $326.30 per ounce, but it closed the year at $396.13 after trading as high as $438.00 in September! The price of gold had spiked just prior to its grand release!


The obverse features the iconic Lady Liberty design which was handcrafted by the iconic French sculptor and leader of the American Renaissance, famed artisan Augustus Saint-Gaudens. In 1907, he finished the design which features an extremely graceful woman striding from the national capital of Washing D.C with a flaming torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other.


The reverse side of the coin is a great representation of our majesty and power with the iconic American bald eagle family in full display. You will feast your eyes on a beautiful family resting in a nest full of hatchlings. The male head of this family soars high above the nest in all its glory and might.


It is delivered to you in optimal condition due to our plastic flips which are designed to protect and preserve its overall great construct.
