Featured on the obverse of the 1987 American Eagle Gold coin is the same iconic design you will surely find on all of the American Eagle Gold coins in this famous series. It remains one of its biggest selling points because the Lady Liberty is the perfect representation of Americas spirit and our inner strength and beauty as one of the greatest nations to ever exist in modern time. This image was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and features a beautiful woman in a flowing dress, walking away from the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington D.C with a flaming torch she wields like a sword.


On the reverse, the design which is featured is the heraldic image of a family of American bald eagles created by Miley Busiek specifically for the American Gold Eagle series.


The 1987 American Eagle Gold Coin marks the second edition of the series which first began in 1986. Although it cannot brag of high levels of demand like its predecessor, it remains one of the most popular set amongst other denominations. It has a limited mintage of 580,266 which means when you purchase it, you will join an elite club of collectors and investors who recognize its high value and worth. Notably, it has an impressive composition of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver.
