Proof Gold American Eagles are part of a larger series that includes a bullion and burnished version as well. Together, these coins are the official gold bullion product of the United States. While the proof and bullion versions were introduced together in 1986, the burnished was unveiled in 2006 as part of the 20th anniversary celebration for the program.
Each of the 2004-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins in this listing is in perfect PR70 condition. The PCGS awards a PR70 grade to coins with full, original luster and no detracting flaws. A Deep-cameo coin possesses a strong, frosted finish on the design set, and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty image. The creation first appeared on the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle in 1907, and was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt directly.
The reverse side features Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of nesting eagles. In her image, a male bald eagle returns to the nest carrying an olive branch in its talons. In the nest, a female bald eagle stands vigilant watch over a group of hatchlings.
All Proof Gold American Eagle coins are struck at the West Point Mint, including the fractional-weight coins that were originally produced at the Philadelphia Mint from 1987/88 to 1994.
