Since 1994, the United States Mint has issued the Proof Gold Eagles at the West Point Mint facility. The mint strikes a “W” mint mark to denote the mint of origin. The coins have not, however, always been struck at West Point. While the 1 oz version was always struck at West Point, the fractional-ounce coins were produced at the Philadelphia Mint with a “P” mint mark from the 1987/1988 introduction dates until 1993.
All of these 2020 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available with presentation boxes courtesy of the United States Mint. The proof versions of the Gold American Eagle come with a Certificate of Authenticity and beautiful visuals. The proof coins have frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields for contrast in the visual appearance of each.
Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse of all 2020 Proof Gold American Eagles in a design created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Shown in front-facing relief, Liberty walks toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand, an olive branch in her left hand, the US Capitol Building at her feet, and 50 stars in a ring around the design field. You will also notice rays of sunshine emanating from the background behind her figure.
American bald eagles are shown in the family nest on the reverse of 2020-W 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles. In this design, a male eagle is shown flying above the nest as a female eagle is perched in the nest with a young hatchling. Miley Busiek created this design exclusively for this coin series in 1986.
