The obverses (heads sides) of the 22–karat gold American Eagle Gold Proof Coins bear Augustus Saint–Gaudens’ image of Liberty with flowing hair holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The coins’ reverses (tails sides) bear sculptor Miley Busiek’s design of a male eagle carrying an olive branch, flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her eaglets.
American Eagle Gold Proof Coins are produced at the United States Mint at West Point. These coins are struck multiple times and feature a frosted foreground and mirror–like background, giving them a special cameo effect. Each coin is sealed in a protective capsule and mounted in a handsome, satin–lined velvet presentation case accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
