This significant 1986 First Year of Issue $50 American Gold Eagle proof strike coin was minted at the West Point Mint. Proof strike refers to the method of manufacture and not the condition of a coin. Proof coins are the highest quality coins produced by the U.S. Mint. This piece is one of the original coins signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1985 that started the series.


Proudly displaying the original “Family of Eagles” design by Miley Frost, a special design feature is the date 1986, is displayed in Roman Numerals. (MCMXXXVI). Only coins produced from 1986 – 1991 had their date displayed in Roman Numerals. This coin is certified in flawless PF70 condition by NGC, which is a very difficult grade to obtain on coins produced thirty-seven years ago when minting technology was not as advanced as it is today!
