Proof Gold Eagle coins are available annually in four different weights: 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz. While the bullion version of the coin featured all four weights from introduction in 1986, the proof collection was phased in over time. The 1 oz Gold Eagle was available immediately, with the ½ oz introduced one year later in 1987, and the ¼ oz and 1/10 oz coins unveiled in 1988.
The Proof Gold American Eagle Coin has been available to purchase in all four weights since 1988, with the exception of 2009. Amidst the pressure on bullion coinage during the height of the Great Recession, coining of all proof silver and gold coin programs at the US Mint halted.
On the obverse of all Proof American Gold Eagles you’ll find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic depiction of Liberty. Created in 1907 by Saint-Gaudens, this image originally appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin from 1907 to 1933 and is widely regarded as the greatest American coin design of all time.
The reverse features a creation from Miley Busiek. An accomplished artist whose works include private pieces and public art displays created for various entities, including federal government organizations, her depiction of the eagle shows a male flying over the nest as a female stands guard over the hatchlings within.
