In 2008, American Gold Eagle coins had a noteworthy year, with a surge in sales that led the US Mint to briefly suspend gold coin sales. BullionMax currently offers the 2008 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle coin.
The obverse of the 2008 1/4 oz Gold Eagle Coin showcases Lady Liberty, as envisioned by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, walking with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Her flowing hair adds to the dynamic design.
On the reverse of 2008 American Gold Eagles, Miley Busiek and Sherl J. Winter’s design depicts a male eagle carrying an olive branch, flying towards a nest with a female eagle and eaglets. It symbolizes the importance of family in America.
President Theodore Roosevelt sought to bring artistry back to US coins, leading to the creation of these designs. Saint-Gaudens, an accomplished sculptor, crafted the version of Lady Liberty seen on the American Eagle Gold coin.
In the early 2000s, the price of gold experienced fluctuations, ultimately showing an upward trend. From $274.00 in 2000 to $880.75 at the end of 2008, the closing price demonstrated a steady increase. Despite economic turbulence in 2008, the coin’s historical significance and limited mintage make it a unique addition to any collection.
These 2008 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available with protective plastic flips for delivery. The mintage in 2008 represented a more than 100% increase from the previous year, with investors flocking to gold during the Great Recession.
