The latest version of the Gold Eagle is available for sale June 1, 2023, and NGC is offering attractive certification options. Special submission instructions must be followed. See the “Submission Instructions” section of this article.
The U.S. Mint is releasing the latest gold bullion coin: the 2023-W Uncirculated Gold Eagle. Commonly known as the Burnished Gold Eagle, the new coins are available for purchase on June 1, 2023, with a limited mintage of only 10,000.
To complement the 2023 release, Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) is offering a variety of special labels and designations to pair with the new coins. They include the West Point Mint Gold Star Label, as well as the popular NGC Early Releases and First Releases labels and designations.
In 2006, the U.S. Mint debuted a collector version of the Burnished American Gold Eagles with a matte finish. Struck at the U.S. Mint at West Point utilizing advanced technology, the coin now includes anti-counterfeit variable reeding along the edge, which provides higher security.
The obverse closely resembles Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original design of the Liberty figure. The full-length Liberty with flowing hair shows her holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. In 2021, a new detailed profile of an American eagle was created and introduced for the reverse. It was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC. 2023-W Uncirculated Gold Eagles certified with the NGC Jennie Norris Signature Label will be available through select retailers.
