The U.S. Government guarantees the weight, content, and purity of all Gold Eagles. This 1999 Proof Gold Eagle is struck from 1/10 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold, measures 16.51mm in diameter, and is among a reported mintage of 48,428.

The obverse portrays a magnificent Lady Liberty surrounded by fifty stars, walking ahead of a rising sun; she proudly carries an olive branch and torch of freedom in her outstretched arms, designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "1999," and "W." The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, illustrates a splendid bald eagle holding an olive branch returning to his beautifully detailed nest.
