Proof Gold American Eagle coins are one of three versions available from the US Mint. In addition to the proof coin, the Mint strikes the Gold American Eagle in a bullion and uncirculated version. The bullion and proof have been around since the beginning, in 1986, with the proof struck every year except 2009.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ classic depiction of Lady Liberty, first used on the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle from 1908 to 1933, has been resurrected for use on the Gold American Eagle. Saint-Gaudens’ image is considered the finest to ever appear on an American coin, and he is credited with reviving American gold coin design.
On the reverse side is the namesake image of the Proof Gold American Eagle. Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of nesting bald eagles is surrounded by the engravings “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “In God We Trust.”
Each coin available to you in this listing has a PF70 grade from the NGC. Coins with this grade have their full, original luster and no blemishes. A coin with an ultra-cameo finish has a strong, frosted design set that appears to float above a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
