Proof American Gold Eagle coins debuted in 1986 with just a 1 oz gold option struck at the West Point Mint and bearing a W mint mark on the coins reverse. When it comes to the fractional-ounce coins in the series, the oz coin debuted in 1987 followed by the oz and 1/10 oz coins in 1988.
The fractional-ounce coins were first struck at the Philadelphia Mint and featured the P mint mark. It wasnt until 1994 that all four options in the Proof American Gold Eagle collection were struck by the same mint, with all production shifted to the West Point Mint.
In this listing, you can purchase a 2-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Set from 1987. All 2-coin sets are available in a commemorative display box and include a Certificate of Authenticity. These sets are available only from the 1987issue year as that was the only year during the Proof Gold Eagle history in which the 1 oz and 1/2 oz coins were the only ones available.
On the obverse of the Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is the depiction of Liberty originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. This design helped revive the appearance of American coinage for the modern era and was used on the Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933 when gold coinage ceased in the United States.
The reverse of the Proof Gold Eagles in this two-coin set includes the image of an American bald eagle family. A male eagle is shown flying back to the nest with an olive branch in its talons as a female eagle guards the hatchlings. Coins in this set will feature W mint marks on all 1 oz coinsand a P mint mark on oz coins.
