The Deep-cameo finish on these coins, known as DCAM, indicates a coin with a strong, frosted finish on the design set and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. These contrasting finishes create the illusion of the design floating above the coin’s surface.
As a First Strike coin from the PCGS, these coins were shipped to the PCGS or an approved depository within the first 24 hours of the release date set by the United States Mint.
On the obverse of the coin is the image of Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Considered the finest coin design in American history, this depiction of Liberty shows her in full-length figure with her hair flying in the wind as she leads the nation from the capital city with her torch as a guiding light.
The reverse features the family of nesting bald eagles created by Miley Busiek. Her design was created in 1986 and is used exclusively on the reverse of the Gold American Eagle coin.
