Impressive condition, 2004 $50 Saint Gaudens Golden Eagle graded as perfection, MS70 by the respected ICG numismatic authority.
Prior generations of Golden American Eagles are called Double Eagles, although the eagle theme is consistent through new and old series of the $50 US Minted Gold Coins. These specimens appeal to both investors and collectors alike. They are 22-karat gold, with the gross weight of 1.0909 troy oz (33.930 g) 91.67% fine gold. The net weight in pure gold is exactly one (1) Troy Ounce or 31.1 grams. American Eagle Gold coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government in content and purity. The classic and beautiful obverse (front side) design of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, gracefully holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Capitol building in the left background is an added realism. The reverse design features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings, by master sculptor Miley Busiek.
