Proof American Eagle Gold Coins are available from the United States Mint alongside the bullion and burnished versions of the coin each year. The series launched in 1986 with the 1 oz gold coin as the only option, but quickly grew to include the fractional-ounce coins in 1987 and 1988. Right now, you can buy 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
With your purchase of the 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coins in this listing, you receive a coin that earned a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in PF70 condition exhibit full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws of any kind present on the designs or background fields. The included UCAM designation indicates brilliant contrast between the strong, frosted design elements and the deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
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.
