When the American Gold Eagle proof was first introduced, only a 1 oz coin was available. Although the bullion coin program included all four weights from the first year, proof coins were not available in this oz weight until the second year of production in 1987.
Each of the coins available through this product listing is considered a perfect proof by the NGC. PF70 coins have their full, original luster, and lack any blemishes, contact marks, detracting flaws, or hairlines. Ultra-cameo coins are defined by strong, frosted design sets overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse side of all American Gold Eagles is Augustus Saint-Gaudens classic depiction of Lady Liberty. First introduced in 1907, the image appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle between 1908 and 1933.
Sculptor Miley Busiek was tasked with creating a unique image for use only on the American Gold Eagle in 1986. Her creation depicts a family of nesting bald eagles, with the male returning to the nest as a female stands guard vigilantly over the hatchilngs.
These coins were among the last to be produced at the Philadelphia Mint, as the majority of American Gold Eagle production was shifted to the West Point Mint in 1994.
