The first gold coins minted in America since 1933 take the form of the American Gold Eagle coin series. Created by the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, mandating that the gold in the coins come from American sources, they are struck in 22-karat gold and alloyed with copper and silver to improve their durability. Their high-quality proof finish makes them prized pieces for both collectors and investors, and they come protected in durable and elegant official mint packaging. A part of this legendary and beautiful coin series, the 2000-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is now available for online purchase from JM Bullion.

The proof-quality American Gold Eagle coin has been available to the collectors’ market since 1986, created with a sophisticated minting process that uses specialized dies and multiple strikes. The resulting effect is called a cameo finish, with mirror-like background fields and frosted details on raised elements of the design.
The 2000-W Proof American Gold Eagle Coin ships with a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies its provenance, nestled in blue velvet in an official U.S. Mint presentation case. The team at JM Bullion tracks and fully insures each and every shipment against any possibility of loss or mishap in transit. Popular, competitively priced, and internationally liquid, this coin is a great way to own physical gold that can help protect investors from financial risk.
The coin’s obverse field features the classic image of Lady Liberty that originally appeared on the American Double Eagle coin designed by famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. She strides forward with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, accompanied by the inscription “LIBERTY.”
The reverse features Miley Frost’s “family of eagles” design, with a bald eagle bringing an olive branch to his nesting family. This is joined by inscriptions verifying gold content, face value, and American provenance along with the mottoes “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
