The only proof coin available in the 1986 debut year was the 1 oz coin. The 1987 release year included the 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle for the first time ever.

Proof Gold American Eagle coins were introduced over the course of three years and have undergone a few small changes over the course of time. As mentioned, these 1/2 oz coins debuted in 1987 and were followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins in 1988.
All three fractional-weight coins were originally produced at the Philadelphia Mint from introduction years until 1993, at which point they were then struck by the West Point Mint. Additionally, all Gold American Eagles had date marks in Roman numerals from 1986 to 1991, and since 1992 have used Arabic numerals instead.
On the obverse of 2019 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is an image of Lady Liberty. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this creation of Liberty was made at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt. He personally contacted Saint-Gaudens hoping the artist-sculptor would help revitalize the appearance of American coinage as the nation stepped out onto the broader international stage in the early 20th century.
The reverse of 2019 Proof Gold American Eagle Coins features a family of bald eagles. This image is exclusive to the Gold American Eagle series and was designed in 1986 for the coins by Miley Busiek.
