An Ultra-cameo proof coin has a truly stunning finish. UCAM coins are identifiable by the stark contrast between the design set and the background field. The designs feature a strong, frosted finish against the background field’s deeply-mirrored, clear finish. This gives the design the visualization of floating above the coin’s surface.
The Proof Gold American Eagle coin celebrated its 30th anniversary release in 2016, and the coins return with a 2017 release for a 32nd year now, stretching from the first release in 1986 to these latest coins in 2017.
