For the first time in several years, the United States Mint established lower mintage figures for the Proof American Gold Eagle coins. The 2018 Proof American Gold Eagles have a shockingly low mintage of just 7,100 for the oz coins and the oz coins, while the 1 oz gold coin is set at 25,000 and the 1/10 oz is set at 22,000.
Proof American Gold Eagle coins had seen rising demand in recent years, emerging from a low point of 23,630 coins in 2012 to hit 32,652 in 2015 for the 1 oz coin. The other weights in the series have followed suit, with the oz coin rising from 12,789 in 2013 to reach 15,775 in 2015. The new mintage figures, even if sold out entirely, would mark new lows for most weights in the series.
On the obverse of the 2018-W oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is the image of Liberty. This full-length depiction of Liberty with flowing hair and her robe drifting in the breeze about her figure was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It depicts Liberty as a guiding force for a nation emerging on the scene as a global power. She leads the country forward with a torch held aloft in her right hand to provide a guiding light, while bearing an olive branch of peace in her left hand.
The reverse of all oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins includes a design exclusive to this range from Miley Busiek. It showcases a family of bald eagles in their nest, with the male flying overhead as a female stands guard over the hatchlings.
All 2018-W oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins bear a W mint mark from the West Point Mint, and ship inside the new satin-lined, burgundy velvet cases of the US Mint. These case are housed in burgundy outer boxes and include a Certificate of Authenticity with purchase.
