Each Proof American Eagle Gold Coin is struck multiple times to create a high level of detail and a mirror-like finish. The coin is also specially treated to give it a frosted appearance on the raised areas of the design. As such, the coins are exceptionally popular with collectors. Today, you have the opportunity to buy 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
The Proof American Gold Eagle Coin has a face value of $50, but its true value is based on the current market price of gold. The coin’s weight, purity, and gold content are all guaranteed by the U.S. government.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ portrayal of Lady Liberty is reimagined in a modern style on the obverse of the 2001-W Proof Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin. The front-facing relief displays Liberty walking toward the viewer while carrying an olive branch and torch. The inscriptions here read LIBERTY, 2013, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.
Miley Busiek’s 1986 design for the series showcases a family of American bald eagles on the reverse of the 2001-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coin. The male eagle is seen soaring above the nest while a female eagle perches with hatchlings. Inscriptions on this side include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, and 1 OZ. FINE GOLD 50 DOLLARS.
The mintage of the 1 oz coin in the Proof Eagle Gold Series in 2001 was the lowest to date for this weight in the series. It was outsold by the 1/10 oz and 1/4 oz gold coins and outsold the 1/2 oz gold coin by just 512 coins.
2001-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins come with plastic capsules for delivery and include both presentation boxes and a Certificate of Authenticity.
