2018 W $50 Burnished Gold Eagle PCGS SP70 First Day of Issue Saint Gaudens Label
The U.S. Mint began striking uncirculated—or burnished—silver and gold for collectors. Since then, the burnished Gold Eagle has consistently been the lowest mintage subset of the world’s most popular gold coin. Struck from a specially prepared 22-karat gold blank that gives each coin a smooth, matte-like surface with incredibly crisp detail.
The design depicts Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch. The reverse of the coin shows a pristine male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female eagle and her young are perched.
This specific specimen is a perfect SP70 graded within the first day of its release. The First Day of Issue label is also paired with the highly coveted Augustus St Gaudens label.
