In 2004, the United States Mint increased the original sale price of Proof American Gold Eagles in the face of rising gold spot prices. The coins across the Proof Gold Eagle release had set mintage caps for the individually available specimens, as well as a cap for the Proof American Gold Eagle 4-Coin set sold that year.
All of the 2004 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins available to you in this product listing come with an NGC certification. Each coin earned a perfect PF70 grade from the NGC, which means the coins have full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws.
The included UCAM label speaks to the quality of the visual brilliance on the coin’s surface and design elements. The design itself is strong and frosted, while the background field has a deeply-mirrored, clear appearance.
On the obverse of the 2004 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coin, you’ll find the image of Liberty created back in 1907. This design depicts Liberty as a guiding force for the nation. She marches forth from the nation’s capital holding her torch alight for the nation and carrying an olive branch in her left hand.
The reverse side of the 2004 Proof American Gold Eagle coin includes the image of bald eagles. This design was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek and it includes a male eagle in flight over the nest, which itself holds a female eagle extending a wing to offer shelter and protection to a young hatchling.
