The 2015-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin was manufactured and produced by the West Point branch of the United States Mint. Struck with 22 karats of actual gold content, this coin is made with a perfect metal balance of the following combination: 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver. The coin itself also features a proof finish, helping to add great visual contrast for the viewer to enjoy. The backgrounds of the obverse and reverse appear mirror-like, while the designs themselves remain frosted.
The 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin was the original release that started the American Gold Eagle Coin series back in 1986. Since then, other weight denominations have been released as well, including fractional weights that were first developed by the Philadelphia Mint but then eventually transitioned to the West Point location. The 1 oz Gold Eagle Coin has always been manufactured by the West Point Mint.
On the obverse of the 2015-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is the image of Lady Liberty. This design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and it was originally taken from his Double-Eagle design. Lady Liberty is seen striding forward, with sun rays extending out behind her to highlight her majesty. She holds two items in her hand: a torch and an olive branch. This image of Lady Liberty remains the featured obverse design for the American Gold Eagle Coin and has been used since 1986.
The reverse of the 2015-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows a design of eagles created by artist Miley Busiek. In the image, a male eagle flies overhead carrying an olive branch in its talons. It flies toward the nest where the female eagle waits with her eaglets. Like the obverse, this side of the coin also contains incredibly patriotic imagery for the viewer to enjoy.
