Here's a gift for those who appreciate politics or history – a 90% gold commemorative struck for one-year only! After being ruled by kings in the "old" world, the founding fathers created a government that reflected the "new" world's beliefs – lawmakers elected by the people. The first meeting of Congress was held in New York City's Federal Hall in 1789 and, 200 years later, this handsome $5 gold piece honored that anniversary. Struck in 1989 at the West Point Mint, this mirrorlike Choice Proof features the U.S. Capitol dome on the obverse and the majestic eagle with shield on the reverse. Each coin is encapsulated and comes in a cherry wood case, making for a dramatic presentation.
