All American Gold Eagle coins are struck using only gold sourced from within the United States. The series consists of three versions in total, with four different weights available: 1 oz, oz, oz, and 1/10 oz. Each coins face value corresponds to its weight, with the exception of the oz coin.
Each of the Proof American Gold Eagles in this listing is in perfect condition. The coins full, original luster is visible, with no blemishes, contact marks, or detracting flaws anywhere on these coins. Deep-cameo describes the coins design finish, which is strong and frosted, as well as its deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse of every Proof American Gold Eagle is Augustus Saint-Gaudens depiction of Lady Liberty. In his creation, Liberty is visible striding toward a bright and peaceful future with a torch in one hand, and an olive branch in the other.
The reverse image was created by sculptor Miley Busiek specifically for use on this coin series. In her creation, a family of bald eagles features a male returning to the nest as a female stands vigilant guard over the family.
