The obverse side of 1997-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coins features the historic Lady Liberty design from the $20 Gold Double Eagle Coin. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty depicts her in front-facing relief walking toward the viewer with a torch held out in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. Rays of sunshine frame her figure and a circle of 50 stars surrounds the design element.


On the reverse of 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coins is a design from Miley Busiek. Created in 1986, this vision depicts an entire family of American bald eagles. Situated in the nest are a mother and a young hatchling. Above the nest, a male eagle soars into view with an olive branch in its talons.


When the 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coin was released it set a new low for the program at that time in terms of mintage. With just 29,805 coins issued, no previous release had a mintage lower. The next year would go on to set another new record low, with more recent releases in the 2010s setting a number of new low mintage marks for the Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coin.
