After the 2000 release year for the Proof Gold American Eagles, mintage levels would fall into a stable range. Mintage would not rise again significantly until the 2005 and 2006 issues. From 2001 to 2004, each weight of the Proof Gold Eagle saw demand hold steady within a range of 3,500 coins difference in total during this four-year period.
As for the 2000 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle, mintage rose 1,601 coins from the previous year to a level not seen since 1996. The US Mint offered the coins individually and as part of a 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set, with all allotted coins selling out for the year.
On the obverse of 2000 Proof Gold Eagle coin is the design of Lady Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this design was modified only slightly for the Gold American Eagle. Saint-Gaudens’ original image had no national motto of “In God We Trust” incorporated and featured only 46 stars reflective of the number of US states at the time. This coin has the national motto along with 50 stars reflecting the current number of states.
The reverse of 2000 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagles features Miley Busiek’s American bald eagle design. It depicts a family of bald eagles in the nest and is exclusive to the range of Gold American Eagle coins.
These 2000 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are perfect specimens with PF70 grades. These coins have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The UCAM label is for coins with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear backgrounds.
