The designs on the American Eagle Gold Coins were created by Miley Busiek and revived from the early 20th century as created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The historic design once featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle and now graces the American Eagle Gold series as of 1986. Today, you have the chance to purchase 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins in perfect condition from Provident Metals.
Proof American Eagle Gold Coins were initially produced by two different mints. The West Point Mint has issued the 1 oz gold coin in the series since its introduction in 1986. The fractional-ounce coins were produced by the Philadelphia Mint from 1987/1988 until 1993.
On the obverse face of 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins, you will find the image of Lady Liberty. This front-facing portrait captures Liberty walking away from Washington D.C. with the US Capitol Building at her feet. Her right-hand holds a large torch aloft as her left-hand clutches a large olive branch.
The reverse side of 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins comes with the image of American bald eagles. The design was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek specifically for use on this coin. It depicts an image of a male eagle flying over the nest as a female eagle guards over a hatchling in the nest.
Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins were introduced in 1987 by the United States Mint as the first of the three fractional-ounce coins. The 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins were introduced in 1988 to round out the series.
