Why purchase this flawless 2016-W Proof American Gold Eagle coin?

The introduction of the U.S. Mint's American Gold Eagle series in 1986 also served as a re-introduction of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens' classic rendition of Lady Liberty created for the 1907 Gold Double Eagle coin. Struck at the West Point Mint, this 2016-W Proof Gold Eagle coin contains 1/10 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold. Final mintage is reported to be 38,788.

Magnificent Historic Imagery

The obverse features Saint-Gaudens' iconic portrait of Lady Liberty surrounded by fifty stars. She confidently advances forward, carrying a torch aflame in her right hand and olive branch in her left, as the rays of the rising sun glow in her wake. "LIBERTY," "2016" and West Point's "W" Mint mark are inscribed.

Designed by Miley Busiek, the reverse depicts a stunningly detailed bald eagle with an olive branch gripped in its talons, as it descends towards its nesting family.

Gorgeous Proof 70 Ultra Cameo, includes a Hand Signed Label

This 2016-W American Gold Eagle Proof coin received a perfect grade of Proof 70 from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). The Ultra Cameo (UC) designation is awarded for the exceptional degree of contrast between the textured and mirrored surfaces on the coin. The 1/10 oz. $5 proof coin is enclosed in a NGC holder with a specially designed commemorative certification label graced with the signature of John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.

This perfectly graded 2016-W 1/10 oz. proof coin will be a treasured addition to your American Gold Eagle collection!
