The United States Mint experienced high demand initially for its Proof Gold American Eagle coins when first released. When sales of the Proof Gold Eagles opened in 2016, demand for four of the five coins was double that of the 2015 issue. Much of that is attributable to the 30th anniversary of these coins.

On the obverse of 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle Coins, you’ll find the vision of Lady Liberty created back in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This inspiring design depicts Liberty as the force guiding America forward into an unknown future on the international stage. An emerging nation in the early 20th century, America is guided by Liberty’s torch and focuses on peace, as symbolized by the olive branch in her left hand.
The reverse face of 2016 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagles includes a unique design of the American bald eagle. This imagery includes an entire family of eagles, with the female eagle in the nest guarding a hatchling under her wing as the male eagle flies overhead with a branch in its talons.
