Why buy this 1/4 oz. Gold 2012-W Proof American Eagle

Rare Proof Gold Eagle collectors will love this 1/4 oz. Gold 2012-W American Eagle Proof because it comes from the second lowest mintage of the coin, which was just 13,775 pieces. Struck from .9167 fine gold at the West Point Mint, it features a "W" Mint mark on the obverse.

Beloved Saint-Gaudens design

The famous Saint-Gaudens design, which gets its name from its creator, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, appears on the obverse of this proof. Liberty stands confidently facing the holder at the center. She lifts her torch of freedom in front of her while holding an olive branch - a traditional symbol of peace - off to her side. Spreading out from behind her are the rays of the morning sun, which is just emerging from beyond the horizon.

On the reverse is the work of Miley Busiek. Busiek depicts a male eagle carrying an olive branch in its claws as it returns to its nest where the female watches his return while taking care of their nestlings.

Flawless Proof 70 Ultra Cameo

The experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) determined that this coin is in perfect condition, so it was awarded a grade of Proof 70, their highest. They also labeled it an Ultra Cameo, thus indicating that it features sharp contrasts between its frosted devices and mirrored fields.
