About the 1989 $5 Gold American Eagle
The 1989 $5 Gold American Eagle offers an easy way to invest in gold. It contains 1/10th Troy oz. of .9167 gold. This is an early year in the series, and one of only six years using Roman numerals to mark the date, offering an additional point of interest to collectors.
The obverse, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, features Lady Liberty walking out of the sunrise, holding a torch and an olive branch. The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, features a male eagle returning to his mate's nest. These designs have helped to make the American Eagle series one of the most popular gold bullion coin sets in the world.
What makes this coin a good buy?
This is a cost-effective buy with a great deal of potential. This coin is shipped to you in brilliant uncirculated condition, the very same condition sought by collectors. Some American Eagles perform very well on the numismatics market, and we've already seen this coin making some modest gains.
As a fractional coin, this is also a good buy to add flexibility to your precious metals portfolio, allowing you to liquidate smaller amounts at need. For the investor on a budget, fractional coins like this one give you the power to build your wealth in accessible increments. Finally, this is simply a lovely coin, one which will be a pleasure to own!
