The United States Mint issued the Proof Gold American Eagles in 2004 with individual mintage caps for each of the four weights and a separate cap on the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set. The coins were all down for the year in terms of demand, with the US Mint also raising the premiums for gold based upon rising prices. This was the second consecutive year prices went up.
2004 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins saw mintage fall the least compared to the previous year, with just 129 fewer coins issued compared to 2003. The 1/10 oz coin had the most drastic decline of nearly 5,000 coins from the previous year.
On the obverse of 2004 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of Lady Liberty. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this image was originally used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle through 1933.
The reverse of the 2004 Proof Gold American Eagles is a design of the American bald eagle. Rather than just one bird, this design from Miley Busiek reflects an image of an entire family of bald eagles and is unique to the Gold American Eagle series.
These 2004 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles have PF70 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws. The ultra-cameo label included with purchase highlights the presence of strong, frosted matte designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
