After years of sales doldrums, the Gold Eagle roared to life in 1998 amidst concerns about a slowing American and global economy in the face of the dreaded Y2K threat. The Gold American Eagle coin’s 1 oz option in 1998 would set a then-record mintage level and finish with a total that stands today as the third highest of all time. Right now, the 1998 1 oz Gold American Eagle Coin is available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you in a protective capsule.
  • Thirteenth release of the American Gold Eagle bullion coin!
  • Mintage limited to 1,468,530 coins only!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of actual gold content in BU condition.
  • Bears a face value of $50 (USD) backed by the federal government.
  • Obverse bears the image of Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle.
  • Reverse includes the American bald eagle design from Miley Busiek.

Each 1998 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin listed with Silver.com is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, however, you might notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces, to contact marks from the coining process at the mint.

In addition to the 1998 1 oz Gold American Eagle coin hitting a new record high in mintage, the 1/10 oz version of the gold bullion coin also surged to a then-all-time high for mintage itself. The 1/10 oz coin hit a mintage of 1.344 million coins in 1998. While Y2K and the Dotcom bubble burst were on everyone’s minds, gold prices didn’t reflect this concern.

Gold had dipped below $300 per ounce in 1997, closing at just $290.20 per ounce. In 1998, gold started around $285 per ounce and rose modestly to about $315 before falling to a low of $275 per ounce. Gold finished the year at $287.70 per ounce, down from 1997’s close.

The obverse of all 1998 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins includes the design of Liberty that was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He was approached by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 to help lead an initiative to overhaul the nation’s gold coin designs, and it all started with this impressive view of Liberty.

On the reverse of the American Gold Eagle coin you’ll find the image of a nesting family of bald eagles. The American bald eagle design on these coins is exclusive to the American Gold Eagle collection, and features a male eagle flying over the nest full of hatchlings that is being watched closely by a female eagle.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
