Proof American Eagle Gold Coins are the number-one gold collectible coin from the United States Mint. Issued annually since 1986, the series has the same four weights as the Brilliant Uncirculated version of the American Eagle Gold Coin. Perfect versions of the coin are relatively rare among the low mintages of the program. Today, you have the opportunity to get 2018-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals in perfect condition.
When the United States Mint introduced the American Eagle Gold Coins in 1986, there were five total weights available. The Brilliant Uncirculated coins come in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold, with an additional Proof coin in 1 oz gold. The fractional-ounce gold coins were introduced over the course of the next two years. These 1/2 oz gold coins came first in 1987, followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins in 1988.
On the obverse side of 2018-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of Lady Liberty. Created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the design features a front-facing image of Liberty. The artwork was designed at a time when the United States Mint was revitalizing all of the coins in circulation with images reflective of the nations growing prominence on the international stage. Liberty is depicted with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. As rays of sunshine emerge behind her figure, a ring of 50 stars encircles the design field.
The reverse face of the 2018-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coin includes the image of a family of American bald eagles. Exclusive to the American Eagle Gold Coins, this design comes from Miley Busiek and shows a male eagle in flight above the nest as a female guards a young hatchling in the nest.
Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins have traditionally been one of the lower-minted coins in the series. Like the Brilliant Uncirculated version of the coin, the 1/2 oz gold coin has lower mintages in proof than its competitors. The 2015 coin, for example, had a mintage less than half that of the 1 oz gold coin.
Your 2018-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin is a perfect specimen. PF70 coins have full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws. The UCAM label indicates the presence of strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields. The Early Release label means each coin was received within the original 30-day window following release by the US Mint.
