About the 1987 $25 Gold American Eagle
This 1987 $25 Gold American Eagle is one of the earliest in the Gold American Eagle series, which launched just one year prior. It is also one of only six years of these coins issued with Roman numeral dates, which lends it an extra edge of uniqueness. Composed of ½ Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold, this is also one of the official bullion coins of the United States of America. Thus, it makes a fine addition to any collection or portfolio.
On the obverse, you'll find an Augustus Saint-Gaudens design reproduced from the early 20th century. Lady Liberty holds a torch and an olive branch as the sun blazes behind her. On the reverse, a male eagle holds an olive branch out to a female eagle as he returns to his nest, a more modern design created by Miley Busiek.
What makes this coin a good buy?
Any variant in a coin's design tends to become a collector favorite after enough time passes. You'll receive this coin in brilliant uncirculated condition, which means it retains the highest level of value.

The value of the gold itself is undisputed, which makes the coin a safe bet. You are investing both in the potential value of the future gold, and in the potential collector's value. Thus, it's a solid choice for any collector or investor.
