Coin collectors appreciate coins that are "the best of the best," and this 2018 $50 1 oz American Gold Eagle PCGS MS70 First Strike fits that description! Its "First Strike" modifier means it was received for grading within 30 days of being issued by the U.S. Mint, and the MS70 grade from PCGS is the highest any coin can receive! Each $50 Gold Eagle is U.S. legal tender, contains 1 troy oz of actual gold weight (AGW), and is struck from .917 fine (22-karat) gold.
The Saint-Gaudens Liberty design appears on the obverse. Lady Liberty carries a torch in front of her as she proceeds up a hill. The U.S. Capitol building is visible in the background. Brilliant sunlight spreads across the horizon. "LIBERTY" is inscribed at the top rim while the year of issue "2018" is found near the bottom-right. The coin's edge is reeded.
For the reverse, Miley Busiek designed a scene of a bald eagle family. The mother eagle protects her two eaglets with her wing as her mate returns to the nest bearing an olive branch in his talons. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" curls along the top rim. On either side of the eagles, the mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed. The weight and denomination are found at the bottom rim.
Collectors will be thrilled with this perfect 2018 1 oz American Gold Eagle PCGS MS70 First Strike and its 1 troy ounce of pure gold. Order yours from Gainesville Coins for competitive pricing!
