Proof coins are struck by the United States Mint on an annual basis with special considerations in mind. All proof coins start as polished blanks, and are struck multiple times in the coining press under intense pressure. The result of these two steps is a coin with sharper rims, more intricate design features, and an enhanced visual appearance.
Each of the 2007-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins in this product listing has a PR70 grade from the PCGS. This grade indicates a perfect coin with its full, original luster, and no detracting flaws of any kind.
The obverse of all Gold American Eagles features Lady Liberty, as designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. His image is widely considered the finest to ever grace an American coin, and is credited with reviving American gold coin design in the early 20th century.
On the reverse you’ll find the image of a nesting family of bald eagles. Created by sculptor Miley Busiek in 1986, this image is used exclusively on the Gold American Eagle. In it, a male bald eagle is shown flying over the family nest, where a female eagle stands guard over the hatchlings.
The United States Mint produces all modern Proof Gold American Eagles at the West Point Mint. Originally, the fractional-weight coins in proof were struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
