A gold coin that pays tribute to the U.S. Constitution’s 200th anniversary is available for purchase.

The obverse, or front, of the Constitutional Bicentennial $5 gold coin features an eagle with its talons around a quill pen and the word "LIBERTY."

The reverse of the coin features another quill pen with nine stars on the pen's left to symbolize the first colonies to ratify the Constitution. Four stars on the coin's right symbolize the remaining states.

Each coin weighs 8.359 grams, contains 0.24187 ounces of gold, and has a diameter measuring 21.6 millimeters. The coins were struck in 1987.

The uncirculated and proof versions of the coin were minted at West Point.

You should review Goldine's Account Agreement along with our risk disclosure booklet, Coin Facts for Investors and Collectors to Consider ®, prior to making your purchase. Goldline has a spread or price difference between our selling price, called the "ask", and our buy-back price, called the "bid". That spread varies depending on coin or bar you acquire. Spreads on 1 oz bullion coins, 90% silver dimes and quarters, and one ounce and larger bullion bars are 13%. All other coins have a spread of 28%. There is also a 1% liquidation fee when you sell your coins back to Goldline. The market must go up enough to overcome this spread before an actual profit is achieved. Precious metals and rare coins can increase or decrease in value. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Coins are a long-term, three- to five-year, preferably five- to ten-year investment. We believe precious metals are suitable for 5% to 20% of the average investment portfolio though others may recommend a different percentage.
