Collectors have been enjoying 22-karat American Eagle Gold Coins since 1986. 2016 marks the 30th year anniversary of the American Eagle Gold Proof Coin Program. American Eagle Gold Proof Coins contain their stated weight of fine gold and are struck by specially treated, polished dies. The coins are fed into modern coin presses at the U.S. Mint in West Point, NY. Each coin is struck multiple times to ensure the highest quality. This exacting process results in a breathtaking cameo image that appears to float on a mirror-like background. The obverse features a rendition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ classic Liberty design. The reverse features a family of eagles designed by Mrs. Miley Busiek. Each coin is encapsulated and presented with its own certificate of authenticity and then packaged in a handsome, protective case.
