Product Details

Introducing the iconic 1988 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin – a revolutionary piece that altered the landscape of minting history upon its launch in 1986. Before its introduction, the US Mint primarily struck .900 gold coins dating back to the 1830s. However, this pivotal coinage reshaped the narrative. Now, you have the opportunity to own the 1988 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin, available for purchase at BullionMax.

Coin Highlights:

  • Comes secured in a protective flip.
  • Marks the 3rd release of the esteemed American Gold Eagle coins!
  • Limited mintage of merely 465,500 coins!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of pure gold content in BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) condition.
  • Carries a face value of $50 (USD) backed by the federal government.
  • Obverse showcases Liberty designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
  • Reverse portrays the nesting bald eagle family by Miley Busiek.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic Liberty graces the obverse, a design commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to redefine American gold coinage. Liberty strides boldly into an unknown future, capturing the essence of the era.

On the reverse, the 1988 American Gold Eagle coins feature the familial scene of nesting bald eagles. Miley Busiek crafted this portrayal in 1986, depicting a female eagle vigilantly watching over hatchlings in a nest, while a male eagle carries an olive branch overhead.

The third release of the 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin encountered a quieter response from investors in 1988. As is common with many bullion and proof programs, subsequent years witness adjustments in production and demand after the initial fervor. Following an impressive debut in 1986, demand halved by 1988, partly due to the expanding variety of proof American Gold Eagles available.

The 1988 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin listed here maintains BU condition, exhibiting no signs of wear and tear. While minor flaws like breaks in luster, spotted surfaces, and coining process marks may be present, the coin retains its pristine quality.
