A deep-cameo coin is defined as one with a strong, frosted finish to the design set and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. This contrast creates the illusion of the design floating above the background field.
On the obverse face of all American Gold Eagle coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original 1907 Lady Liberty design. The only upgrades made to his design for use on the American Gold Eagle were the addition of two more stars around Liberty to represent the additions of Hawaii and Alaska to the Union.
The reverse features a family of nesting bald eagles, and was created in 1986 by artist Miley Busiek. This face of the coin also bears the face value, year of issue, weight, and purity of the coin.
All American Gold Eagle proof coins were originally produced at the Philadelphia Mint. By 1994, production had shifted to the West Point Mint, which continues to mint all American Gold Eagle coins, regardless of version, today.
