The 1994-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin was struck by the West Point Mint, which is indicated by the “W” mint marking featured on the coin itself. This coin was created with a metal combination of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver. Altogether, the coin was struck with 22 karats of actual gold content. It also includes a proof finish, which gives the appearance of the coin a mirror-like quality. The designs themselves appear frosted to offer a higher visual contrast for the viewer.
1994 is the eighth year that 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins have been manufactured by the West Point Mint. This year is also the first year that the West Point Mint took over manufacturing and distributing fractional weight coins in the series, which was originally taken on by the Philadelphia Mint.
The obverse of the 1994-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows the original Lady Liberty design that’s been featured in the series since its initial release in 1986. This image of Lady Liberty was originally taken from the Double-Eagle design created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, making it a truly cherished image. Lady Liberty walks forward toward the viewer with both arms extended. She holds a torch and an olive branch.
Artist Miley Busiek created the eagle family image included on the reverse of the 1994-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin. Three eagles are shown nesting, with the male eagle flying overhead and carrying an olive branch in its talons. Like the imagery included on the obverse, the reverse is also incredibly patriotic. The coin’s specs—weight, value, purity, and country of origin—are also featured on the reverse.
