For the 1993 issue year, two of the four Proof Gold Eagle coins had increases in mintage while the other two experienced dips in demand. The typically popular 1 oz and 1/10 oz coins both dropped in mintage, while the 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz coins saw increases in demand.
On the obverse of all Gold American Eagle coins, you’ll find the nation’s most iconic image of Liberty. Created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907, this depiction of Liberty was modern in its day and uniquely American as it featured Liberty as a free figure with confidence in her movements.
The reverse of the 1993 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle features the image of bald eagles. Created specifically for the Gold Eagle Collection in 1986, this design of the eagles includes a nest with hatchlings watched by a female, while a male eagle flies overhead.
