Each of the 2002 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles in this listing comes to you with a perfect certification of PF70. The NGC issues this grade to only those coins which exhibit full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws on the design elements and surface areas of the product.
The included UCAM label in this packaging denotes that each individual coin is what’s known as an ultra-cameo specimen. A UCAM coin is identifiable by the presence of strong, frosted matte elements on the design set and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
2002 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins saw a modest rise in demand. The coins jumped nearly 3,000 in total from the previous year’s release and settled into a stable range for the coming years that would see demand increase only a total of 900 coins in the next two years.
On the obverse of all 2002 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty. When the 1 oz gold coin in this series was released in 1986, it was the first time Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of Liberty featured on an American coin since the $20 Gold Double Eagle had gone out of circulation in 1933.
The reverse side of the 2002 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles includes a unique design found only on the Gold American Eagle coins. This creation from Miley Busiek depicts an entire family of bald eagles around their nest.
