The 2014-W 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin was struck by the West Point Mint using 22 karat gold. This coin was made with a combination of different metals to create a balance of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver. This coin also includes a special proof finish, which means that the background appears mirror-like, while the designs on the coin are frosted in appearance.
The American Gold Eagle Coin collection was released in 1986, but it wasn’t until the year after that the Philadelphia Mint introduced the weight denomination of 1/2 ounce for the collection. Until 1993, all fractional weight coins from this series were being produced at the Philadelphia Mint; however, in the years afterward, production of these coins transferred to the West Point Mint permanently.
On the obverse of the 2014-W 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of Lady Liberty, which was originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. In the image, Lady Liberty is shown walking forward with sun rays extending out behind her to highlight her great radiance. In her hands, Lady Liberty carries a torch in the air along with an olive branch. The imagery that’s included on this side of the coin is very patriotic and it helps represent the overall traditions and values of the United States.
On the reverse of the 2014-W 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of an eagle family, which was created by Miley Busiek. In the design, a male eagle flies overhead with his wings outstretched wide. In his talons, he carries an olive branch, and he approaches a nest where a female eagle and her eaglets wait for his arrival. Certain specs of the coin are also featured on the reverse, including its purity, weight, value, and origin country.
