Description & Analysis

In 1782, the Second Continental Congress selected the Bald Eagle as the fledgling country's national bird. Hundreds of years later, the bird has come to signify freedom and strength. However, lack of protection for the species brought it to the brink of extinction by the 1970's. The Endangered Species Act of 1973 helped turn the tide for the Bald Eagle, and the species has since recovered immensely. In honor of this recovery as well as the 35th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act, Congress authorized three different coins honoring the majestic bird. The three coins authorized included proof and mint state versions of a $5 gold coin, silver dollar, and clad half dollar. Surcharges from the sales of the coins were paid to the American Eagle Foundation of Tennessee which helps support the continued protection of the national bird.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
