2006 20th Anniversary Gold Eagle Set – NGC 70 W/Michael Castle Signature
 
One of the best gold items released by the United States Mint in decades!
This set includes The First Ever Reverse Proof Gold Eagle – only 10,000 sets minted
 
This unique coin set was released for the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle Coin Program.
The highlight coin is the first ever Reverse Proof version of the American Eagle Gold Coins. This coin was struck with specially prepared dies with mirrored devices and frosted fields - the reverse of a standard proof coin. Also included, is an  American Eagle $50 Gold Proof Coin and  an American $50 Eagle with a business strike. All three coins carry the “W” mint mark, guaranteeing they were struck at the West Point Mint.
 
The Reverse Proof coin holds the unique collectible feature of being a first and of having a low mintage of just 10,000 coins. Don’t overlook the first business strike eagle with a W mintmark!  
 
Only 25 Sets have been Hand Signed by Michael Castle
