The obverse of the 1997-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coin features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic Walking Liberty design. Created in 1907 for the $20 double eagle, this elegant motif depicts Lady Liberty striding forward. She holds a torch aloft in her right hand, guiding the way while cradling an olive branch in her left as a symbol of peace. Inscriptions read 1997, W, and LIBERTY.


The reverse of the 1997-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Coin showcases Miley Busiek’s celebrated family of eagles design. A striking male eagle soars protectively above a nest where a female tends to her hatchlings, capturing the power, grace, and nurturing essence of America’s national emblem. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, MB, JW, 1 OZ FINE GOLD, and 50 DOLLARS.


The U.S. Mint’s Proof American Eagle Gold program launched in 1986 with a 1 oz option, followed by additional fractional weights in 1987 and 1988. Proof strikes have been annual releases ever since, apart from 2009.
