American Gold Eagle proof coins are available annually in one of four weights: 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, 1/2 oz, or 1 oz. While the 1 oz coin has the longest history, debuting in 1986 with the other bullion coins in the series, the additional proofs have a slightly shorter history.
The 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle was unveiled one year later in 1987, followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins. Although the popularity of the coins as a whole is high, the 1/10 oz and 1/2 oz are often the most in-demand weights within the American Gold Eagle series.
Each coin in this 2016-W 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Set has a brilliant proof finish. The coins all have the same gold content of 22-karat pure gold, but face values differ by weight. The 1 oz coin has a $50 (USD) face value, followed by $25 (USD) for the 1/2 oz, $10 (USD) for the 1/4 oz, and $5 (USD) for the 1/10 oz coin.
On the obverse of every Proof American Gold Eagle is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic Liberty design from 1907, which originally featured on the nation’s $20 Gold Double Eagle coin. The original engravings of the stars are changed only on this coin to add two stars for a total of 50, as there were only 48 US states at the time the Gold Double Eagle was in circulation.
The reverse of the 2016 Proof American Gold Eagle features the image of a family of nesting bald eagles, captured brilliantly in its design by Miley Busiek and used exclusively on the American Gold Eagle series.
This 2016-W 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle set ships to you with each coin encapsulated in plastic, and set within a brilliantly designed wooden display box, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
