Information and History of 2008 $25 Gold Coins
Value of 2008 Twenty Five Dollar Gold Coin
The 2008 $25 gold coin is basically just a precious metals product. All that means is that the value of the coin will be different based on the current market value of gold. This is a half ounce coin. So you can divide the current price of gold by two to get the coin’s intrinsic value. Collectors refer to these as AGE or American Gold Eagles. The United States Mint markets these coins every year. The only change is just the year; the style of the coin looks exactly the same year to year. Whether we are talking about a coin issued in 2008, 1989, or any other year – you will always see the same features.
The 2008 half ounce coin has text that reads: 2008 – Liberty – United States of America – E Pluribus Unum – In God We Trust – 1/2 OZ. Fine Gold ~ 25 Dollars – MB JW. The front or obverse of the coin pictures a female (Lady Liberty) holding a torch and branch. The back or reverse of the coin has a flying eagle.
