The 1 oz gold coin in the 1997 Proof Gold American Eagle Collection had the only notable issue of the series. While all four weights of the Proof Gold American Eagle again fell in 1997, the 1 oz coin suffered less of a drop as it was buoyed by the release of a commemorative coin set from the US Mint which included a 1997 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle. Today, 1997 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins are available to you online at with a perfect certification.

There were two notable occurrences at the United States Mint in 1997. First and foremost was the introduction of a new coin in the American Eagle Series for the first time since the 1986 introduction of the Gold Eagle and Silver Eagle. The US Mint debuted its first-ever Platinum American Eagle in 1997.

Additionally, the 1997 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle was struck for individual purchase and as part of the Impressions of Liberty Set. This commemorative set included a 1997 Proof Silver Eagle, 1997 Proof Gold Eagle, and 1997 Proof Platinum Eagle coin, all in 1 oz weight. This helped the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle avoid the greater fall in demand that hit the 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins.

All of the 1997 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins in this listing earned PF70 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws. The UCAM label denotes the presence of strong, frosted design sets and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields on the coin.

On the obverse of 1997 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic image of Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle. The reverse side of all 1997 Proof Gold American Eagles includes Miley Busiek’s exclusive design of a family of bald eagles.
