1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagles Since its introduction in 1986, the Gold American Eagle coin has been in high demand every year. Additionally, the Proof Gold Eagle is one of the most beautiful Gold coins in the world. Proof coins are struck on specially prepared planchets multiple times to provide a unique finish that appeals to collectors.
The obverse of the Gold Eagle is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design of 1907, often regarded as the most beautiful design in American coinage. The design features Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch. The reverse of the coin is equally beautiful, showing a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young. This design highlights the strength and importance of American families.
