About the 1991 $50 Gold American Eagle
Like all Gold American Eagles, this $50 coin issued in 1991 offers an easy, convenient, and highly portable way to invest in gold bullion. It contains 1 Troy oz. of 22 karat gold, a weight and purity which is backed by the United States Government.
Visually stunning, this coin features Augustus Saint Gaudens' Lady Liberty design on the obverse and Miley Busiek's eagle family design on the reverse. It's a blending of the old and the new, as Gaudens' design heyday was in the early part of the 19th century, and Busiek submitted her design for the 1986 release of this coin, becoming the first female designer to see her work on any American coin. This coin offers additional visual interest because it also comes from one of only six years in which Roman numerals were used for the date mark.
