Proof Gold American Eagle coins were introduced over the course of the first three years of availability for the Gold Eagle program. The 1 oz gold coin debuted in 1986 alongside all four weights in the bullion version. In 1987, the US Mint added the 1/2 oz coin into the series and followed that up in 1988 with the 1/4 and 1/10 oz coins to round out the collection.

All of the 1988 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins in this listing are in PF70 condition according to the NGC. Considered a perfect proof specimen, these coins have full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind. The Ultra-cameo, or UCAM, designation is reserved for proof coins with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.

On the obverse side of these 1988 Proof Gold American Eagle Coins, you’ll find the image of Liberty designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Originally used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle, it is considered the finest American coin design by many numismatists.

The reverse of the 1988 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle features the depiction of a family of bald eagles. A nest in the center contains a group of hatchlings under the watchful eye of a female eagle as a male eagle flies over the nest.

All 1988 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins in this listing have “W” mint marks from the West Point Mint on the obverse, as well as unique date marks in Roman numerals which featured on the coins only through 1991.
