2021 $50 American Gold Eagle Type 1 NGC PF70 Ultra Cameo Michael Castle Signature


This 2021 $50 American Eagle Gold Eagle is one of the final coins produced with the iconic “Family of Eagles” design by  Miley Busiek. The Family of Eagles motif was legislatively mandated in  1985 and has appeared on all incarnations of the gold series — bullion and Proof beginning in 1986, Uncirculated in 2006, and several other surface finishes since, including Reverse Proof and Enhanced Uncirculated releases.




Coins are graded on the Sheldon numeric grading scale of 1 to 70. To achieve the top grade 70, a coin must have no post-production imperfections at 5x magnification. This coin has a high-quality proof strike, the term proof refers to the method of manufacture and not the condition of the coin. Proofs are coins that are specially struck for collectors, Many proof coins exhibit varying degrees of Luster, mint bloom or frost, on the design elements. This is achieved when the surrounding smooth mirrored surfaces are polished on the coining die to give them a brilliant finish. As the dies are used repeatedly to strike coins, this effect can fade. NGC has examined the “Strike Elements” of this coin and awarded it an Ultra Cameo designation. This designation only applies to proof coins where the smooth surfaces, (The fields) are deeply mirrored and the devices (design elements) are heavily frosted for bold contrast on both sides of the coin.
