2019 $50 Gold Eagle NGC MS70 ER
 
The American $50 Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States of America.  Released in 1986 under the Reagan Administration as a mint store of wealth, Gold Eagles are the number one best selling gold bullion investment and gold numismatic collectible coin in the world. They are a welcome addition to any coin collection, gold portfolio or retirement account.
 
Design of American Gold Eagles
 
The obverse (heads) of the Gold Eagle is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design of 1907, often regarded as the most beautiful design in American coinage. The Gold coin design features Lady Liberty, walking confidently against the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch. The reverse (Tails) is equally striking, depicting a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young. This American Gold coin design highlights the strength and importance of American families.

Condition Mint State 70 (MS70)
 
Coins are graded on a 70-point scale with “70” being absolute perfection. In 1948, Dr. William Sheldon, a renowned numismatist, developed the Sheldon Scale, assigning number grades from "1" through "70" to coins. The basis of Sheldon’s theory was that a "70" would be worth 70 times as much as a "1."
 
The numerical grades MS60 through MS70, are used to denote business strike coins that never have been in circulation. A Mint State coin can range from one that is poorly struck with many marks and hairlines (MS60), to a flawless, fully struck, lustrous example with superb eye appeal (MS70).
