About this Product

The American Eagle Gold proof is a gold bullion coin of the United States. It was first released from the U.S. mint in 1986. This coin is offered in 1/10 oz., ¼ oz., ½ oz., and 1 oz. denominations. This beautiful coin comes with a 22 kt. Gold alloy, traditionally referred to as crown gold. American Eagle Gold proof coin undergoes a specialized minting process by which, glossy coin blanks into presses fitted with special dies. The coin is struck several times so the softly glazed, yet detailed images seem to hover over a mirrored field. After an intense inspection by gloved inspectors, each American Eagle Gold coin is encapsulated and placed in a stunning satin-lined velvet case for display along with an official Certificate of Authenticity. The obverse side of the coin has a dazzling rendition of Saint-Guadens’ figure of Lady Liberty, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in the left, and a depiction of the Capitol building in the left background. The reverse side, designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch back to a nest with a female eagle and their hatchlings.
