American Gold Eagle Coins have seen three different peaks in demand since the 1986 debut of the series. Each of these three peaks came with two strong years of mintage, followed by slumps in demand. Not surprisingly, each one of these two-year spans boasted the highest mintages in the collection. Only six years have featured a mintage of over one million and the 1998 coin ranks third in the history of the series.


For the obverse design of 1998 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins, the US Mint features a front-facing depiction of Lady Liberty. Augustus Saint-Gaudens created this design in 1907 for use on the $20 Double Eagle Gold Coin. The image shows Liberty in full relief as her figure walks forward toward you holding up a large torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand.


In the reverse design element of the 1998 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin, you will find an exclusive design only used by the US Mint on these coins. The design shows a male bald eagle flying over the family nest as a female shelters the hatchling.


The highest mintage in the history of the 1 oz gold series is the 1999 coin issued amidst the Y2K scare during the late 1990s. The 2009 coin, issued during the Great Recession, is the next highest mintage and is closely followed by these 1998 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin.


1998 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins in this listing come in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins available here come with an individual protective flip.
