American Gold Eagle coins debuted from the US Mint in 1986. That first year of issue included just a 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle, with the other three fractional-weights introduced over the following two years. First came the half ounce in 1987, followed by 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles in 1988.
In this product listing, you’ll receive a 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Set from the United States Mint. Each one arrives inside of the original satin-lined presentation case. Included with your purchase is a Certificate of Authenticity from the US Mint as well.
You’ll receive a 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Set with the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins from the series included inside. We cannot guarantee the year of issue for the set you receive. It will range from 1988 to 2008, or from 2010 onward. No Proof Gold Eagles were produced in 2009 amidst the global financial crisis and rising demand for precious metals.
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.
All 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Coin Sets are struck by the United States Mint facility at the West Point Mint. Each coin’s obverse face has a W mint mark hiding in the rays of sun emanating from behind Liberty.
