The 2001 Gold American Eagles were the second coins in the series minted during the 21st century. These particular Gold American Eagles were made available just as demand for gold bullion products began to grow exponentially. You can now own a 2001 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle from Silver.com with a “W” mint mark and PR70 grade from the Professional Coin Grading Service.
A “W” mint mark indicates a coin that was struck at the West Point Mint in New York. PR70 grades from the PCGS are reserved for coins which are considered perfectly struck proofs. A DCAM designation identifies coins with strong, frosted designs laid over a background field that is deeply mirrored and clear.
On the obverse is Lady Liberty, as first depicted by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. The full-length figure of Lady Liberty is visible with a torch in one hand and olive branch in the other. Engravings such as “Liberty” and “2001” are featured on this side. The reverse features Miley Busiek’s family of eagles in their nest. Busiek’s image was created specifically for use on Gold American Eagles.
