About the 1986 $50 Gold American Eagle Proof
This is a spectacular coin to add to any collection. This $50 Gold American Eagle proof coin comes from the inaugural year of the Gold American Eagle series, 1986. It is one of only 6 years of this run of coins which uses the Roman numeral dates. And it's a proof. Three, for three, this coin is something special, which is why we expect they'll be very hard to find soon.
This one is more than an investment. You'll feel the intense pride of ownership when you behold the finely wrought details of Augustus Saint-Gauden's Lady Liberty, walking triumphantly forward with the sun at her back, or the eagle returning home to his family on the reverse. The mirror-like shine, unique to proof coins, makes it clear at a glance you've brought home something special.
What makes this coin a good buy?
It's hard to overstate the potential collector's value of this coin to achieve prices well above the spot value of gold. As of this writing, brilliant uncirculated versions of this coin such as the one we'll be sending this way are already performing. As the years pass this inaugural coin may only get harder to find.
Thus, it is the perfect addition to the portfolio of anyone who prefers to invest both in the bullion value of gold and in the numismatic value of specific collector's items. While there are no guarantees, this coin easily distinguishes itself as an outstanding pick.
