  • Issued in 1987 by the US Mint!
  • Limited mintage of 147,498 coins!

First issued in 1986, the American Eagle Gold collection was launched alongside its sister counterpart, the American Eagle Silver Coin. Both have gone on to be juggernauts in their respective markets. The Proof versions of the American Gold Eagles were minted in 1988 with resounding success and high demand. Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Miley Busiek are the two sculptors who are responsible for the iconic imagery featured on the obverse and reverse of the coins respectively.


On the obverse field of the 1987-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin, a modern reproduction of Lady Liberty is depicted. She is seen marching from the capitol with a flaming torch and a symbolic olive branch in both hands. She is beautiful and graceful under the bright rays of the sun below her feet. There are two inscriptions featured and they include “LIBERTY” and the year of mintage.


For the reverse of the 1987-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin, private artist and sculptor Miley Busiek is credited for the imagery. It features a male bald eagle flying over the family nest, which contains a group of hatchlings and the female eagle standing guard.

Although the Mint operates four major facilities, the Proof American Eagles are only struck at the West Point Mint in New York. Each coin bears a W mint mark as an identifying marker.
