The two highest mintage figures in the Proof Gold American Eagle Series both belong to the 1 oz gold coin in the collection. Its debut in 1986 included a total of 446,290 coins, which is the highest figure any Proof Gold Eagle has ever achieved. The 1987 release contained 147,498 coins, the second-highest figure for any Proof Gold Eagle. The lowest mintage year for the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle came in 2012 when just 23,630 coins were struck.
All of the 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins available in this Silver.com listing feature near-perfect certifications of PF69 from the NGC. Coins with a PF69 certification have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. The minor flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines visible only outside the primary focal areas.
Additionally, each of these Proof Gold Eagles has a UCAM label. Known as an ultra-cameo label, it indicates the presence of strong, frosted design elements with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse of the 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin, you’ll find the 1907 design of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The only major change to the design when it was issued on the Gold Eagle was the addition of two stars representing Hawaii and Alaska in the Union, both of which became states after the design went out of circulation in 1933.
The reverse of the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles includes an exclusive design. This image from Miley Busiek depicts a male eagle flying over the family nest as a female stands guard over the nest and hatchlings.
