The Proof Gold Eagle coins debuted in 1986, but only the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle was available that year. This coin holds the two highest mintage figures in the Proof Gold Eagle Series, with 446,290 coins sold in 1986 and 147,498 sold in 1987. Since 2008, it has been the best-selling weight just ahead of the 1/10 oz option.
1 oz Proof Gold Eagle coins minted from 1986 to 1991 have date marks on the obverse in Roman numerals. All coins struck from 1992 to the present have date marks on that same side in Arabic numerals instead. 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles have been struck by the West Point Mint since their 1986 introduction and bear a “W” mint mark as such.
On the obverse of Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty design. Considered the greatest American coin design of all time, it featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle circulation coin from 1907 to 1933.
The reverse of 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins includes a vision of American bald eagles. The family is depicted here with a male flying over the nest as a female shelters a young hatchling within the nest. It was designed in 1986 by Miley Busiek exclusively for the Gold American Eagle coins.
