Also new in 2018, the US Mint has issued extremely low mintage caps for the Proof Gold American Eagle. The US Mint has typically used mintage caps in this series dating to 1993, but amid the unprecedented demand for gold in the 21st century those mintage caps have generally been much higher than 2018’s numbers. For 2018 , just 25,000 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles will be struck.
The obverse of all 2018 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins feature the full-length figure of Liberty as she strides forth from Washington DC. With the US Capitol Building visible at her feet, she guides the nation into an unknown future with a torch held high in her right hand to shine a light and an olive branch in her left for peace.
On the reverse of the Proof Gold American Eagle Coins you’ll find the family of American bald eagles. Created by Miley Busiek in 1986 exclusively for this collection, the design includes a male eagle flying over the nest with its wings outstretched to cover the whole nest. Below, a female eagle stands watch over the nest and its hatchlings. Found on all Proof Gold American Eagle coins is the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint.
