Why choose this Proof 69 Ultra Cameo 1997-W 1/4 oz. Proof Gold Eagle for your collection?

The U.S. Mint issued the first American Gold Eagle coins in 1986. In the years since their introduction, these coins have become quite popular. This 1997-W $10 issue has a proof finish and an actual gold weight of 1/4 Troy oz. It had a modest mintage; there were only 29,805 of these struck.

Iconic designs by Busiek and Saint-Gaudens

The obverse of this coin displays a classic Liberty design. It was originally created in the 1900s and used for the $20 circulating gold coin of that period. This design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The reverse is where the face value and gold content can be found. This side shows a modern design that was created by Miley Busiek. An adult bald eagle is depicted as it returns to the family nest.

Proof 69 and Ultra Cameo from NGC

To have this coin graded and encapsulated, it was sent to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The experts there use a grading scale with a maximum of 70. This coin received the second highest grade available, Proof 69, indicating it is almost perfect. Since it displays excellent visual contrast it was awarded the Ultra Cameo designation as well.
