Why buy this 2016-W $25 1/2 oz. Gold Proof American Eagle?

The American Gold Eagle Series celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2016, and this $25 Gold Proof was part of that celebration. That makes it a particularly attractive option for collectors looking to ensure that they have coins from significant releases. This piece was struck from a half ounce of .9167 fine gold at the West Point Mint and bears that mint's "W" mint mark. It remains in GEM Proof condition just as it was when it left the mint.

Classic Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens

The obverse features the iconic Saint-Gaudens design, which is named for the man who created it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the double eagle. Liberty faces the holder extending her torch of freedom in front of her and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, to her side. She appears powerful as she strikes a confident pose even as the wind blows her hair and garment. The rays of the morning sun, which extend out from behind her, make her appear larger than life, as does the miniature rendering of the Capitol Dome on the left. Along the rim are fifty stars, one for each state. This is an adaptation of the original design, which included only forty-six.

Miley Busiek created the reverse design specifically for the Gold Eagle Series. A male eagle spreads its wings as he prepares to land in its nest, where its family awaits his arrival. He carries with him an olive branch. Below, his mate tends to their young. Several inscriptions spread throughout the remaining space, including the coin's weight, "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD," and face value, "25 DOLLARS."
