Millennium Gold American Eagle Proof 70 Date Run, 2001 - 2008 Description:
The Millennium Group includes the first eight years of Gold Eagles produced in the 21st Century (2001 to 2008), a total of 32 coins and 14.8 ounces of pure gold. Each set includes four coins 1/10oz ($5 face value), 1/4oz ($10), 1/2oz ($25), and 1oz ($50). In 2009, the Gold Eagle Proof was not minted. Instead, the U.S. Mint created the 20 09 Ultra High Relief Double Eagle, with a design modeled after the original $20 Saint-Gaudens, widely recognized as the most attractive coin in U.S. history.
The Millennium Group of Gold American Eagles includes some of the coins with the best investment performance of any coins in the series, with only one of the sets rising in price less than 10% per year over the last few years, still far above recent average returns in the stock market or even the gold bullion market.
Every coin is graded by NGC in Proof 70 Ultra Cameo condition, the highest grade available.
The date run also includes a free woodren storage box that protects and stores 50 NGC coin slabs. Box color may vary between dark mohogany and teak wood.
