The Burnished American Eagle Gold Series was launched by the United States Mint in 2006, providing collectors with an alternative to the Proof Eagle Gold Coin in the series. The Burnished Eagles were obtainable from 2006 to 2008 and have been made available again as of 2011. Right now, you can buy 2008-W Burnished American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 2008-W Burnished American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin online from Provident Metals, you will receive a coin that is in a protective capsule. The coin is packaged in a US Mint display box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse design of the 2008 Burnished American Eagle Gold Coin features Augustus Saint-Gaudens timeless image of Lady Liberty. This portrayal of Liberty shows her holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, walking towards the viewer with rays of sunlight in the background, the U.S. Capitol Building at her feet, and a ring of stars around the field. Inscriptions include LIBERTY, 2008, and the W mint mark.
Miley Busieks depiction of a family of bald eagles is showcased on the reverse design of the 2008-W Burnished Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin. In this design, the male eagle soars over the nest with a large branch in its talons while the female eagle protects her hatchlings inside the nest. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, 1 OZ. FINE GOLD, and 50 DOLLARS.
The 2008 issue of the Burnished Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin had the lowest of the three issues before the 2009-2010 hiatus. While its 11,908 coins was the lowest of that era, it is higher than most of the coins issued after the 2011 return of the series.
