Honoring Veterans On This Special Holiday

“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.” - Woodrow Wilson

1986 marks the very beginning for both the Eagle programs and it is no surprise that their presence in the coin world has been exponential, especially the American Gold Eagle. Next in the series for the top 100 Greatest United States Modern Coins, we will break down a popular, special edition of the American Gold Eagle that was produced in its anniversary...read more
