American Gold Eagle coins are the official gold bullion coins of the United States of America. Each coin is required, by law, to contain only gold sourced from within the US. The proof version of the coin is struck using a special coining process that begins with unique blanks, struck multiple times with a die to create the impressive finish of a proof.
When the American Gold Eagle coin debuted from the US Mint in 1986, it was the first gold coin produced in the United States with more than .900 gold content since 1837. The US had moved away from the crown gold alloy starting in 1834, and never was another gold coin available from the US Mint in a higher gold content until the debut of the Gold Eagle.

On the obverse side of all Proof American Gold Eagles is the image of Lady Liberty as she lights the way toward the future. The image, created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907, features Liberty striding forward into the future with the setting sun at her back, and a torch in her right hand to guide the nation forward.
The reverse side of all coins features the image of a male bald eagle returning to the nest, where a female is visible standing watch over the nest and its hatchlings. This depiction was created by sculptor Miley Busiek specifically for these coins.
All Proof American Gold Eagle coins are struck by the United States Mint at its West Point branch, which is reflected in the use of the W mint mark on the reverse field of the coin near the eagles nest.
