The Double Eagle is one of the most famous American coins, a $20 gold piece that circulated internationally and featured the design vision of the famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gauden. Since 1986, the U.S. Mint has paid tribute with the American Eagle Coin Program, combining reproductions of Saint-Gaudens’ work with the visions of modern medallic artists, as seen on the 1998-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin.
The 1998-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coin features a “W” mint mark that identifies it as one of the issues struck at the West Point Mint facility. Its high-quality proof finish showcases the coin’s full, original luster with a blemish-free surface. Each shipment is fully insured by Provident Metals and arrives in secure box packaging, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s obverse side features a faithful reproduction of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty design with flowing hair, an olive branch in her left hand, and a torch in her right hand. She is accompanied by the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and “1994.”
The coin’s reverse side features a male eagle returning to the nest bearing an olive branch, and his mate below protecting her hatchlings. It is accompanied by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “25 DOLLARS,” along with the “W” mint mark.
The American Eagle Coin Program is noted for its fidelity to the original designs of Saint-Gaudens, along with celebrations of prestigious modern numismatic artists that bring this classic imagery fully into a contemporary context. As such, it enjoys a solid reputation among collectors and investors, measuring up to the subject matter that it celebrates.
