A UCAM designation identifies a proof coin with a unique and beautiful finish that sets it apart from others. Ultra-cameo refers to a coin with a strong, frosted matte finish to the design elements of the coin, while the background field is deeply-mirrored and clear for a brilliant contrast between the two aspects of the design.
American Gold Eagle coins feature the same obverse and reverse designs each year. The obverse design of Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens is widely regarded as the finest American coin design of all time. It features a full-length figure of Liberty walking from Washington DC into the future, with her torch as a guiding light.
On the obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle is the iconic image of Lady Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle, which was minted from 1907 to 1933. President Theodore Roosevelt personally selected Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create the design, which helped reinvent American gold coin design.
The reverse of Proof American Gold Eagle Coins features a design from modern artist Miley Busiek. Created in 1986 and used exclusively on the American Gold Eagle, Busiek’s depiction of a family of bald eagles includes a male eagle returning to the nest where a female closely guards a group of hatchlings.
All Proof American Gold Eagle Coins are produced exclusively at the West Point Mint location in the United States Mint system. These coins are released on an annual basis by the mint, and have at some point been struck by other mints with the exception of the Denver Mint.
