From the late 1990s to the early 2000s, the Proof Gold Eagle Series saw decreased demand as interest in the BU version of the coin soared. The 2002 release had one of the lowest mintages for the 1 oz gold coin in the programs history. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2002-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
In 2002, the Proof American Eagle Gold Series remained relatively steady from a demand standpoint compared to previous years. The 1 oz gold coin in the series was around 800 coins higher than the lowest issue of the year, the 1/2 oz gold coin. The 1/10 oz gold coin was the most popular with a mintage of over 40,000.
On the obverse side of 2002-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coins, you will find a portrait of Lady Liberty. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and first featured on the $20 Double Eagle Gold Coin. In this image, Liberty is in front-facing relief with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Inscriptions on this side read LIBERTY, 2002, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint.
The reverse field of the 2002 Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin comes with an image of bald eagles. Designed in 1986 by Miley Busiek, this visual shows a male eagle soaring over the nest as a female eagle within the nest guarding hatchlings. Inscriptions on this side read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and 1 OZ FINE GOLD 50 DOLLARS.
Proof American Eagle Gold Coins were first issued in 1986, with only the 1 oz gold coin available in that first year. The fractional-ounce coins were introduced in 1987 and 1988, with the 1/2 oz gold coin introduced first, followed by the 1/4 and 1/10 oz coins.
These 2002-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins are available to you in capsules with a US Mint presentation box. Each coin also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
