The gold Eagle was the largest denomination authorized in the Act of April 2, 1792. Production began in 1795 with the Capped Bust series and lasted until 1804. At the time, Eagles proved to be a difficult denomination for use by both the general population and bankers, and much of it was taken out of circulation and melted for bullion.

GreatCollections has sold 73 Capped Bust Gold Eagles in the past 10 years, selling at prices from $3,850 to $135,125, in grades 1 to 64+. Of these, 5 were approved by CAC.

The design was made by: Robert Scot.
