Described by the US Mint as a “flagship” coin, the 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle is a highly collectible example of the classic Gold Eagle coin. Struck exclusively at the US Mint from .9176 pure gold, the Proof Gold Eagle weighs 1.0909 troy oz in total. Each Proof Gold Eagle is struck using all the skill and craftsmanship of the US Mint.
The obverse of the 1oz Proof Gold American Eagle shares the walking Liberty design from the original 1907 Saint-Gaudens double eagle. The obverse shows Liberty proudly striding forward with a rising sun behind her with “LIBERTY” arched across the top and the date on the bottom. The reverse features Miley Busiek's elegant design with an adult eagle returning to a nest containing another adult and eaglets. The inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", “E PLURIBUS UNUM”, “IN GOD WE TRUST” and “1oz FINE GOLD~50 DOLLARS” stand out form the mirror-like face and the proof detailing is superb throughout.
The 1oz Proof Gold American Eagle is offered in random years as availability allow, and is presented in the capsule. However, it does not include the box or certificate. Produced in limited runs each year, the 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle combines desirable rarity with extraordinary beauty.
