About the 1989 $50 Gold American Eagle
Invest in this early-release Gold American Eagle to bring home a unique coin you'll love to hold or display. Released in 1989, this coin comes from one of only six years in which Roman numerals, not Arabic, were used to mark the date.
Marked with a glorious shine and incredible detail, this $50 face-value coin contains 1 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold. The obverse features the historic Lady Liberty design created by Augustus St. Gaudens in the early part of the 20th century. The reverse holds a modern design depicting a family of loyal eagles caring for one another.
What makes this coin a good buy?
For collector's value, proof coins are usually a good bet. Your $50 Gold American Eagle will be shipped to you in brilliant uncirculated condition, which means you're also receiving the coin quality collectors look for. It's well positioned to attain a high value above the price of gold.
Yet the value of the gold is exciting in its own right. Bullion like this will tend to grow in value over time no matter what. So add this coin to your collection or portfolio with confidence, knowing you've not only brought home a lovely piece, but have also invested just a little more into your future.
