Capped Bust Gold Eagles
About Capped Bust Gold Eagles: 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.
