The American Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. When it was first introduced in 1986, it marked the first increase in gold content for US coins since 1837. Each American Gold Eagle coin is struck using .9167 (22-karat) gold, and this 2015 oz coin has a face value of $25. Today, you can purchase a 2015 oz American Gold Eagle in deep cameo proof from JM Bullion with a perfect PR70 grade from the Professional Coin Grading Service.
When the PCGS certifies a coin as a PR70 product, it indicates that it has its full, original luster and sharp, attractive strike for the mint and date. These proof coins have no visible hairlines, contact marks, or flaws of any kind. The DCAM, or deep cameo, designation identifies a proof coin with a strong, frosted finish on a design set that overlays a deeply mirrored, clear background field.
Included inside the sealed packaging on each coin for sale today is a First Strike Label from the PCGS. The First Strike labels designate that the coins were received by PCGS within the first 30 days of the coins release.
American Gold Eagle coins feature Augustus Saint-Gaudens iconic Lady Liberty image as it first appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle. Saint-Gaudens was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to revitalize American gold coins, and delivered with an image that is considered by many to be the best in the history of American coinage. The reverse side of these coins features a family of bald eagles, with the male returning to the nest carrying an olive branch. Sculptor Miley Busiek designed the image specifically for the American Gold Eagle coin series.
The United States Mint strikes these remarkable proof coins at its West Point Mint facility. While other coins in the series are struck at other mints on occasion, the proof coin is always struck at West Point.
