The 1 ounce $50 Gold Eagle is the premier gold bullion coin of the United States. Since its inception by an act of Congress in 1986, it has been one of the most popular bullion coins in the world. It is approximately the size of a US half-dollar, and showcases Saint-Gaudens’ timeless Lady Liberty, with the reverse showing the namesake Eagle, the coin’s troy weight, and the nominal face value of $50. While containing a full troy ounce of gold, the Eagle weighs a bit more than a troy ounce. It is minted in the 1986 legislated gold alloy of 91.67% gold, with the remaining mix in silver and copper. This makes the metal stronger and the surface less likely to scuff from mishandling. This coin will be dated 2021.
