As a UCAM coin, these proof specimens have a unique beauty known as ultra-cameo. This describes a coin that has a strong, frosted finish to the design features of the coin and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. The combined effects give the impression of the design floating above the design field itself.
On the obverse of the American Gold Eagle remains the stunning image of Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this image is credited with revolutionizing American coin design in the early 20th century, and appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle until 1933.
The reverse side of the coin includes an exclusive design from Miley Busiek. Created in 1986 specifically for the American Gold Eagle series, this design features a family of bald eagles in its nest, with the male flying overhead while the female guards the hatchlings.
