The 2011 American Gold Eagle Coins celebrate the 25th anniversary of the coin’s inception in 1986. The 2011 Gold Eagles are certified early release with a Mint State of 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and contain one-half troy ounces of .9999 fine gold.
While gold was said to be discovered more than 5,000 years ago, it was just 25 years ago when the 1985 Bullion Act approved the production of American Gold Eagles. The coins are among the most beautiful American coins ever struck and have become known as the nation’s official gold coin.
The elegant Lady Liberty treading ahead is depicted on the obverse of each 2011 American Gold Eagle. Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ illustration has Liberty clinching a torch with her right hand and an olive branch with her left. The issuing year and “LIBERTY” also appear.
A soaring eagle clutching an olive branch above its nest and family is displayed on the reverse. The design by Miley Busiek is surrounded by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and its denomination and size.
The ½ ounce Gold Eagles not only provide stunning coins to investors and collectors worldwide, but their store of wealth and eligibility for private holding and IRA investing makes these coins extremely desirable. Own yours today or give as a gift to the coin enthusiast in your life. Just order through Provident Metals’ online purchase system!
