Why add this 1994-W Proof Gold American Eagle to your collection?
1994 was the ninth year of issue for the popular American Gold Eagle coins, and the first year all Gold Eagle denominations were minted in the same location. Until this point in time, fractional Proof Gold Eagles were struck in Philadelphia. Beginning in 1994, all American Gold Eagles were struck in West Point, the proof versions bearing the "W" Mint mark. This 1994-W Gold Eagle, with a mintage of 62,849, measures 16.51mm in diameter and is struck from 1/10 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold (22-karat).
What is the design of the $5 American Gold Eagle?
The obverse design of the Gold Eagle pays homage to the $20 Double Eagle, created by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Lady Liberty is depicted walking forward, carrying an olive branch and torch, the rising sun in the background, within a border of fifty stars. "LIBERTY" arches above, "1994" to right. A bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch graces the reverse, his nesting family nearby, designed by Miley Busiek.
