American Gold Eagle coins were originally offered in bullion and proof, with the four weights available immediately in bullion. The proof fractional-weight coins were phased in through 1987 and 1988. Today, the program also features a burnished version of the American Gold Eagle.
President Theodore Roosevelt personally selected Saint-Gaudens in 1905 to redesign American gold coins. His Lady Liberty depiction was finalized in 1907 and appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933, becoming the most sought-after and valued American coin design of all time.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens is the most legendary American coin designer around. As the federal government sought to overhaul all American coin designs starting in the early 20th century, Saint-Gaudens was the first man chosen for the job.
On the obverse of 2017 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is Lady Liberty, featured in full-length figure with her hair flowing in the breeze as she strides forward from Washington D.C. to lead a young nation into an unknown future.
The reverse of all Proof American Gold Eagle coins features the image of a family of nesting bald eagles. Created by Miley Busiek, this design includes a male bald eagle returning to the nest with an olive branch, where a group of hatchlings is closely guarded by a vigilant female bald eagle.
All of the 2017 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins in this listing are PR70 certified by the PCGS. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and feature no detracting flaws. DCAM is a designation for coins with a strong, frosted finish and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
