With passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, Congress authorized the production of an official gold bullion coin for the United States. The original bill called for a bullion and proof coin to be struck on an annual basis. Four weights were struck in the bullion version from the first year, while the proof coin program did not expand to all four weights until 1988.
Each Proof Gold American Eagle coin in this product listing is available with a perfect grade from the PCGS. These perfect proofs feature full, original luster, and no blemishes, contact marks, detracting flaws, or hairlines. Deep-cameo coins feature a strong, frosted finish on the design set, which overlays a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
The obverse side of each coin bears Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty image. In his depiction, Liberty is representative of America’s march toward a brighter future. Wearing her traditional robes, she is outlined by the rays of the setting sun, and holds a torch in her right hand to guide the way, while an olive branch in her left signifies peace.
On the reverse side of the coin is the image of a family of nesting bald eagles. Sculptor Miley Busiek was commissioned to create an image of the national emblem specifically for this coin program, and her design is not featured on any other American coin.
