The 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set: A Collector's Dream

In the realm of numismatics, few collections hold the allure and prestige of the 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set. Released by the United States Mint, this 2 gold coin set represents not just a collection of exquisite coins, but a symbol of American heritage and the pinnacle of craftsmanship in coin minting.

This Proof set comes with a one troy ounce 1987 Proof American Gold Eagle (1 oz t) and a one half troy ounce 1987 Proof American Gold Eagle (½ oz t).


Coin Highlights:

  • Exceptional Craftsmanship: Both coins in the 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set are proof coins, meaning they undergo a specialized minting process that results in a flawless, mirror-like finish. The intricate details of Lady Liberty and the bald eagle are rendered with precision, showcasing the skill of the mint's artisans.

  • Diameter and Thickness: The 1 oz has a diameter of 32.7 mm, while the ½ oz has a width of 27 mm. The 1 oz has a thickness of 2.87 mm, and the ½ oz has a thickness of 2.24 mm.

  • Limited Mintage: The 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set was produced in limited quantities, adding to its rarity and desirability among collectors. With a finite number in existence, each coin becomes a coveted treasure for those fortunate enough to acquire it. The 1 oz had 147,498 minted; while the ½ oz had 143,398 minted. This coin set comes with a Certificate of Authenticity (COA). 

  • Historical Significance: The year 1987 marks an important period in American history, adding an extra layer of significance to these coins. Whether it's the political climate, or economic landscape, owning a piece of history adds depth and meaning to any collection.

  • Investment Potential: Beyond their aesthetic appeal and historical value, the coins in the 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set also serve as a sound investment. Gold has long been regarded as a hedge against inflation and economic uncertainty, making these coins not just beautiful collectibles but also a safeguard for wealth preservation.

In conclusion, the 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set stands as a testament to the timeless beauty and enduring value of American coinage. From its exquisite design to its limited mintage and historical significance, this set captures the essence of numismatic excellence and remains a prized possession for collectors around the world.


Overview of the Set:

The 1987 Proof Gold Eagle Set comprises two coins, each meticulously crafted to the highest standards of quality and beauty:

1 oz Gold Eagle:

The flagship coin of the set, the 1 oz Gold Eagle, boasts a diameter of 32.7 millimeters and contains a full troy ounce of 91.67% pure gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% copper. Its U.S. Mint design features the iconic Augustus Saint-Gaudens Lady Liberty striding confidently forward, holding a torch of enlightenment and an olive branch of peace.

The 1987 Proof American Gold Eagle is one of six years that includes the year written in Roman numerals: MCMLXXXVII. The reverse showcases the Mikey Busiek designed majestic bald eagle in flight, symbolizing American strength and freedom. The face value of $50 (50 DOLLARS) is located on this reverse side.

1/2 oz Gold Eagle:

Complementing its larger counterpart, the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle shares the same stunning design elements but in a more compact form. With a diameter of 27 millimeters, this coin contains half a troy ounce of 91.67% pure gold.

Despite its smaller size, it exudes the same elegance and craftsmanship as the 1 oz coin. The face value of $25 (25 DOLLARS) is located on this reverse side.
