The obverse design of all Proof American Gold Eagles features a depiction of Liberty by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, one of the most iconic American coin designs of all time. This design was originally created in 1907 for the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin and was used until 1933. Augustus Saint-Gaudens was an accomplished sculptor who was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to redesign the US Mint’s coinage. The resulting design was the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, which has been widely regarded as one of the most beautiful coins in American history.
The reverse design of the American Gold Eagle coins features a depiction of a male eagle in flight over a nest, as a female eagle stands guard over her hatchlings. This design was created by artist Miley Busiek, who has also created private pieces and public art displays for various entities, including federal government organizations.
All 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Coin Sets are struck by the United States Mint facility at the West Point Mint, known for its high-quality coin production. Each coin in the series features a W mint mark hiding in the rays of sun emanating from behind Liberty on the obverse face. This mint mark indicates that the coin was produced at the West Point Mint and adds to its value as a collectible.
Overall, the American Gold Eagle coins are an excellent choice for investors who want to diversify their investment portfolios and add a tangible asset with long-term value. The combination of stunning designs, high-quality production, and guaranteed authenticity makes the American Gold Eagle series a top choice for collectors and investors alike.
