This 1990 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle was struck at the West Point branch of the US Mint and has been graded by the NGC as a perfect PF70. Each coin has also been assigned an Ultra Cameo (UCAM) designation, meaning it has a mirrored background field with a frosted raised design. Being that 1990 was only the fifth year the Gold Eagle was produced, they are highly collectible today and sought out by numismatists.

With over 25 years of history behind it, the Gold American Eagle is one of the most popular coins on the market today. It is minted in four primary weights each year with the 1 oz, $50 coin being the largest in the series. The 1990-W 1 oz Gold American Eagle NGC PF70 UCAM Coin has a very limited population of only about 887 coins, making it one of the more rare variations. This makes them highly sought after by those who collect coins from the series.
While the coins have been minted for over two decades, each year they feature the same popular design of Lady Liberty on their obverse and a family of eagles on their reverse. These images are complemented by several inscriptions including the country’s name, the purity, weight and legal tender value.
