Proof Gold American Eagles are a limited mintage coin from the United States Mint. With the same design as the gold American Eagle bullion coins, Proof American Eagles are minted in 1-oz., 1/2-oz., 1/4-oz. and 1/10-oz. sizes and can be purchased in any of these sizes singly or in 4-piece sets featuring one of each denomination.
Proof Gold Eagles feature the same design as regular American Gold Eagles. Based off of and inspired by Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 $20 Gold Double Eagle, showing a proud Lady Liberty amidst the suns rays. The reverse of the coin features Miley Busiek’s design depicting a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young.
Proof gold American Eagle coins are made with a more-detailed minting process. Special dies are used on the coin blanks, which are fed manually into the presses and struck multiple times to produce detailed coin images that look softly frosted above a mirror-like background. Each proof American Eagle comes in a beautiful, dark blue velvet presentation case with an official United States Mint Certificate of Authority.
Due to their limited quantity, Proof Eagles trade not only off of spot price, but also supply and demand as Proof Eagles typically sell out each year.
