In 1997 we saw the U. S Mint expand its offering with the new Platinum Eagle.
This introduction of this new piece was expected to slow the demand for Gold Eagles, but we saw the opposite effect. The sales and production of the one-tenth-ounce Gold Eagles hit a ten-year high with over 528,000 pieced produced. Even though we saw a 30% increase in the yearly production, only 143 pieces have been graded perfect 70 by PCGS. This flawless struck piece features sharp details on the obverse and reverse and the luster is pleasing to the eye. This is a key date to any collection.
1 of only 143 in PCGS population! Design features a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young on the reverse and the obverse features the design of Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun's rays which was adapted from the famed Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
