Why add this perfectly graded 1997-W Proof Gold American Eagle to your collection?

In 1997 the American Gold Eagle experienced a drop in mintage across all proof denominations. The reason for this could be the expansion of the American Eagle Bullion Program, with the introduction of the American Platinum Eagle that year. Having a final reported mintage of just 32,999, this Proof was struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold and measures 32.7mm in diameter. The American Gold Eagle has been the official gold bullion coin of the United States since 1986, produced at the U.S. Mint's West Point facility of 22-karat gold, carrying the "W" Mint mark.

Extraordinary detailed imagery

Designed by Miley Busiek, the reverse features a magnificent bald eagle in flight, an olive branch held tightly in its talons; his mate and hatchlings nested in the foreground awaiting his return.

The obverse portrays Lady Liberty encircled by fifty stars, designed by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the 1907 Double Eagle. Confidently advancing forward, she carries a torch aflame in her right hand and olive branch in her left. "LIBERTY," "W," and "1997," are inscribed.

Flawless Proof 70 Ultra Cameo

This magnificent $50 Proof Gold Eagle is graded a perfect Proof 70 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The Ultra Cameo designation refers to the remarkable quality of frosted and highly polished mirrored surfaces struck onto the coin.
