When gold was $750 an ounce, dates like the 1889 sold for significant market premiums over common Type Three double eagles. But now that gold has soared to over $1,800, the premium factor for the 1889 is next to nothing. This means that you can buy a genuinely scarce coin for essentially no premium. No brainer, eh? Not only is this an easy coin to appreciate its value, its a choice, original piece with handsome color and natural luster. Take advantage of values like this while you can!
