Proof American Gold Eagle coins debuted alongside their bullion counterparts in 1986, but in that initial year only the 1 oz coin was available. These oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins were first released in 1987 as part of a phase-in approach for the fractional weights. The following year, 1988, would see the addition of the oz and 1/10 oz options.

On the obverse of the Proof American Gold Eagle is Augustus Saint-Gaudens iconic Liberty image. Saint-Gaudens was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 to revitalize American gold coin design, and he came up with this depiction of Liberty leading the nation into the future as she walks out of Washington DC in full-figure relief.
The reverse of 2018-W oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins features the bald eagle family design by Miley Busiek. In this design youll note a male eagle returning to the nest with an olive branch. In the nest, a group of hatchlings are under the watchful gaze of a female eagle. All Proof Gold Eagles feature a W mint mark from the West Point Mint.
