Each of the 2019-W 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Sets available to you in this product listing includes each of the individual 2019 Proof Gold Eagles. Each year’s release features a 1 oz gold coin, 1/2 oz gold coin, 1/4 oz gold coin, and the 1/10 oz gold coin. The 4-coin set is housed in a United States Mint commemorative display box and features a Certificate of Authenticity with purchase.
Proof Gold Eagles have matte, frosted design elements overlaying background fields that are mirrored. The difference between the two elements creates visual contrast between the design and background field. All Proof Gold Eagle Coins feature a “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint as well.
On the obverse of 2019-W 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Sets, you’ll find the image of Lady Liberty. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to help revamp American coin design in the early 20th century and developed this image of Liberty in a front-facing relief as she walks forward from the national capital.
Saint-Gaudens’ design of Liberty featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle circulation coin from 1907 to 1933 and is widely regarded as the best coin design in the nation’s history. Saint-Gaudens never lived to see his design in circulation though, dying from disease in 1907 just months before the US Mint began striking the coins.
The reverse of Proof American Gold Eagle Coins features a unique design from Miley Busiek. Designed in 1986 exclusively for the American Gold Eagle, this image includes a male eagle flying over the nest as a female eagle shelters a hatchling within the nest.
