About the 1990 $25 Gold American Eagle
This 1990 $25 Gold American Eagle is a ½ Troy oz. 22 karat gold bullion coin suitable for gold investing or collecting. The $25 symbolic face value and its position as legal tender mean the United States government guarantees the weight and quality of the gold.
This is an early year of this well-loved series. The 1990 year is one of only six years in which the U.S. Mint used Roman numerals to mark the date instead of Arabic numerals. This adds an additional level of interest to a piece that is already rich with history. As the first gold coin made available to the American public since the Great Depression, this coin has captured the imagination of investors and collectors alike. There is an early 20th century design on the obverse and a late 21st century design on the reverse.
What makes this coin a good buy?
