The US Mint has announced the release of the American Eagle 2019 One Ounce Gold Uncirculated Coin. The coin, often referred to as the Burnished Gold Eagle, goes on sale June 13.

Minted since 1986, the Gold Eagle has widespread appeal to collectors for both its composition and the beauty of its design. The obverse features the venerable design from the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle produced a century ago, while the reverse showcases a family of eagles.

The 2019-W Burnished Gold Eagle includes the 'W' mintmark of the West Point Mint, which produces much of the US bullion and commemorative coinage. It has a face value of $50.

Coins received by NGC within the first 30 days of their release are eligible for NGC's popular Early Releases and First Releases designations. Learn more about Early Releases and First Releases here. For Early Releases / First Releases cutoff dates, click here.
