1986 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle BU (MCMLXXXVI) - First Year of Issue 


This beautiful $25 American Eagle gold brilliant uncirculated coin was issued in 1986, this coin's First Year of Issue, with a mintage of only 599,566. The American Eagle gold bullion coins contain 1/2 oz. of gold with a fineness of 0.9167, and is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. 

The obverse features a modified rendition of the Augustus Saint-Gaudens design used on U.S. twenty-dollar gold pieces from 1907 until 1933 of a full length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, with the Capitol building in the left background. The words "LIBERTY" are written across the top with the year written in Roman Numerals "MCMLXXVI".

The reverse displays a "family of eagles" motif designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, featuring a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. The words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" are across the top and "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD- 25 DOLLARS" is inscribed on the bottom. The American Gold Eagle is now the world's most widely traded gold bullion coin.

Like all of our other gold coins, this one is guaranteed to be 100% authentic.

Beautiful Coin (Review by Sylvia Robertson)
I've been looking for this coin to add to my collection of gold eagles and was ecstatic to see it on this site. I called to place my order and the representatives are courteous and professional. I loved the personal touch Bullion Exchanges has to their service. This was my first purchase and won't be the last.
