The end of the 20th century brought about a mini-rush in the pursuit of gold. Investors and collectors alike returned to the American Gold Eagle Collection, helping to push mintage figures higher for a few years from 1998 to 2000, before both collections settled into a stable groove for most of the first decade of the 2000s.

On the obverse side of the 1999 Proof American Gold Eagle coin, youll find the image of Lady Liberty. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this imagery appeared on the nations $20 Gold Double Eagle coin from 1907 to 1933 when the US ended the use of the gold standard in coinage. Liberty is depicted here with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left as she walks forward toward the viewer.
For the reverse of the 1999 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle, the United States Mint continues its use of the bald eagle design from Miley Busiek. Created specifically for the American Gold Eagle coins in 1986, this image includes the vision of a family of bald eagles at their nest.
