This 2015 $50 Gold American Eagle MS69 (Mint Error Struck Thru) Minted by the United States Mint was certified and graded for its Authenticity by the Numismatic Guarantee Corporation is a collectors dream. This one of a kind coin has a mintage of 626,500 that were struck and a population of 1! This is the only $50 Gold Piece that year that has this big of a dent on the obverse in Gold American Eagle History. That’s right this beauty is the only one of her kind.
Struck through mint errors are caused when a piece of foreign material (often lint or grease) is struck into the surface of the coin. The foreign material then becomes dislodged but leaves behind a recessed area where the design was not struck. The name “struck through” (sometimes shortened to “struck thru”) indicates that the coin was struck through a piece of foreign material.
While it is not uncommon to come across minor struck through mint errors on American Eagle bullion coins, it is rare to see large ones. These images show a 2015 1-Ounce $50 Gold Eagle with a large area of the obverse obstructed by foreign material. An error of this size is seldom encountered and is highly desired by error collectors.
