Proof Gold American Eagles were introduced in 1987 in the fractional weights. The 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin was the only one introduced in 1987, with the smallest two weights introduced one year later. All fractional-weight coins were initially issued by the Philadelphia Mint with a “P” mint mark from 1987 to 1993, and with a “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint from 1994 onward.
