The Proof Gold Eagle has been offered by the US Mint since the series was first introduced in 1986. Compared to the bullion version, proof coins are struck in lower numbers using a special die which gives the coin a mirrored appearance with finer details. These coins were first introduced as a special issue for collectors and numismatists. Today, they are highly sought after by those who collect coins from the series.
Each coin in this collection was minted at the West Point branch of the United States Mint which is the only facility where proof coins are produced. These coins will ship in their certified NGC coin slab which displays the minting year, condition and a unique serial number for authentication.
