Since it began production in the mid-Eighties, the American Gold Eagle coin has been a popular way to own physical gold. Prized by investors for its competitive pricing and international liquidity, praised by collectors for its beautiful design and the dazzling visual appeal of the proof-quality issues in particular, the annual release of this series from the U.S. Mint has made it one of the most famous coins on the market today. The limited mintages of proof coins are produced using specialized dies and multiple strikes to produce a cameo finish, featuring mirrored fields and frosted details. A great example is the 2000-W Proof American Gold Eagle 1 oz Coin, now on offer from Provident Metals.
The 2000-W Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is available to you in an elegant presentation case, along with a Certificate of Authenticity that verifies its provenance. It showcases high-relief engravings with classic design elements, and each shipment is fully insured by the team at Provident Metals against even the most remote possibility of loss or damage in transit.
The famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens originated the design of Lady Liberty that dominates the coin’s obverse field, and which first appears on the American Double Eagle coin. This iconic representation of America’s national identity carries a torch and an olive branch and is accompanied by the inscription “LIBERTY.”
The reverse field shows a bald eagle bringing an olive branch to his nesting family, an image derived by creator Miley Frost from a similar artwork of his called “Family of Eagles.” This is joined by inscriptions verifying the coin’s American origin, gold content, and face value along with the mottoes “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
The Gold Bullion Coin Act was signed by President Ronald Reagan in 1985. It created the first gold bullion coins to be minted in America since 1933, designed to pay homage to famous earlier coins like the American Double Eagle. Struck in 22-karat gold — alloyed with silver and copper for additional durability — these have gone on to become a perennially prominent bullion coin on the global market.
