Proof coins are often struck in higher levels in the modern era compared to their bullion counterparts. Although the Proof Gold American Eagle is an extremely popular coin, the bullion version of the coin is still struck in greater numbers.
The 2000 production year was one of the lower production cycles in the Proof Gold American Eagle series, and the number of 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles available in perfect condition this year is among the lowest. These perfect coins won’t last long as a result.
On the obverse side of all Gold American Eagle coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty image. In his depiction, Liberty is featured in full-length relief with a torch held aloft in her right hand to guide the nation into the future. The original 1907 version of the image had just 46 stars, but has been updated for use on Gold American Eagles to feature 50 stars.
The reverse side features the family of nesting bald eagles created by Miley Busiek. Her image features a male bald eagle returning to the family nest, with engravings of “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “In God We Trust” included.
Each coin in this listing has a perfect proof grade. PR70 coins feature full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. Deep-cameo coins are characterized by strong, frosted design sets and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
