Proof Gold American Eagle coins are no different in weight, content, and design than the bullion versions of the coin. The primary difference comes in the stunning finish. Proof coins are designed to capture the imagination of collectors with brilliant finishes that make them excellent for display. Proof Gold American Eagles are struck using new dies each year to meet this standard of excellence in appearance.
Each of the Proof Gold American Eagles available in this listing has a perfect grade from the NGC. PF70 coins have their full, original luster, and no blemishes or detracting marks of any kind. The ultra-cameo finish is found on coins with a strong, frosted design set overlaying a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse side of all Proof Gold American Eagles is the image of Lady Liberty striding forward toward a brighter future. With a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, her figure is outlined by the rays of the rising sun.
The reverse features the image of a male bald eagle, the national emblem of America, returning to its nest with an olive branch. In the nest, a female eagle is featured standing guard over the hatchlings.
