2022 Proof Gold Eagles

What’s Better than 2022 American Gold Eagle Coins?

2022 American Gold Eagle PROOFS, in Perfect Condition,
with Sought-After Pedigrees and Hand-Signed Labels

 

For many, the American gold story began with the discovery at Sutter's Mill on January 24, 1848. Though it was supposed to be a secret—SURPRISE!—word got out and it didn’t take long for hundreds of thousands of people to migrate west by land and sea, fueled by the promise of wealth beyond their wildest dreams.

 

Decades later, it was President Ronald Reagan who elevated gold in the American consciousness when he signed the Gold Bullion Coin Act into law in 1985, effectively putting gold within reach for U.S. citizens by mandating the minting of Gold American Eagle coins beginning in 1986. Gold Eagles quickly soared in popularity, forever changing the precious metals market.

 

An All-American Coin, Gold Eagles Are Minted from U.S. Gold


Since their introduction 36 years ago, American Gold Eagles have been the most widely-traded gold coin in the U.S. Part of the reason for that popularity is that, by law, they are minted from gold found in the United States. The Gold Eagle is truly an American coin. The legislation also stipulated Gold Eagles would be minted in four different weights (one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce, $50, $25, $10 and $5 denominations respectively) and would include two different versions, bullion and proof. The bullion program was immediately available with all four weights, while proofs weren’t available in all four weights until 1988.

 

 The Gold Eagle Design Represents American Strength and Beauty


Another reason the coin is so popular with collectors is its beautiful, intricate, uniquely American design, which combines both the old and the new. The front of the coin features a modified version of American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ classic Lady Liberty design for the $20 Double Eagle gold piece which was originally commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt and minted from 1907 to 1933. It is considered to be one of the most striking American coin designs of all time. The reverse of the original Gold American Eagle depicted a family of bald eagles.

 

Then Last Year, the Gold Eagle Reverse Design Changed


Halfway through last year, in honor of its 35th anniversary, the Gold Eagle received a new reverse design depicting a close-cropped profile of a bald eagle with a strong, curved beak, thick plumage, and an intense gaze, created by Artistic Infusion Artist Jennie Norris. Ms. Norris is an award-winning artist who drew inspiration for the design from her deep connections to nature and wildlife.

Here's Why Collectors Prefer Premium Proofs


In a nutshell, collectors want proofs because they are the best of the best quality, and they have a higher degree of scarcity than non-proof coins. You see, proofs are struck to a much higher standard of beauty, quality, and craftsmanship, using special proof planchets (blanks) that have been treated, hand-polished, and cleaned to ensure high-quality strikes, then fed into presses fitted with polished dies and struck at least twice, unlike regular coins which are struck only once. The extra strikes give proofs a glamorous shine and make the intricate, razor-sharp details of the design pop against polished, mirror-like fields. While regular coins are struck on high-speed presses by the thousands, proofs are individually struck by highly-skilled artisans who are creating numismatic masterpieces—and therefore proof mintages are typically only a fraction as large as non-proof coins.

 

These Aren’t Just Proofs, these are Perfect Proofs


Even within the population of proofs, there are levels of quality. With proofs and coins, quality is measured by grades on a 70-point scale, with a grade of 70 representing absolute perfection, even under magnification. With a new release, collectors quickly snatch up coins and send them to leading independent grading services like Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC), hoping those coins come back with a top grade of Proof-70 (PF70).

 

That’s what we’ve got here, the best of the best.

 

Not only that but these Proofs have also been certified Ultra Cameo (UC), a designation given to coins that possess an intense frosted finish on both sides, with highly polished fields accenting the raised elements. Not every coin can achieve a PF70 UC grade, and considering the limited mintages and high collector demand accompanying these Gold Eagles, we feel fortunate to be able to offer these flawless coins to collectors seeking top grades.

 

What’s Better Than the Best?


These Proofs are not only certified as flawless but even better, they’ve also qualified for the most-desired pedigree of First Day of Issue (FDI). Pedigrees are additional attributes of a coin that can increase its collector desirability—and the pedigree collectors want most with Gold Eagles is FDI, which means the coins were purchased the very first day they were released from the U.S. Mint. Coins with FDI pedigrees are highly sought-after because they are considered fresh, well-struck coins, and because the population is very small.

 

Flawless and First Day of Issue with Hand-Signed Signature Labels


Perfect, with a First Day of Issue pedigree. Can it get any better? Yes, it can. Each of these Proofs comes sealed in a protective display holder that features the hand-signed signature of one of the people that played an instrumental role in the creation of American Eagle Coins—including Jennie Norris, the artist who designed the new “Eagle Portrait” Gold Eagle reverse; David Ryder, the former 34th and 39th Director of the U.S. Mint who oversaw the release of several years of American Eagle Coins and was instrumental in the transition from the Type 1 reverse design to the Type 2 reverse design last year; and John Mercanti, retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint who designed the reverse of the original American Silver Eagle, and who has produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in U.S. Mint history.

To start with, mintages for these 2022 Gold Eagle Proofs are insanely small: 16,000 one-ounce, 12,000 half-ounce, 14,500 quarter-ounce and 24,000 tenth ounce. We don’t know the final mintage numbers for bullion 2022 Gold Eagles for the full year 2022, but to date we can document that bullion mintages far exceed the number of proofs: 278,500 one-ounce, 46,000 half-ounce, 80,000 quarter-ounce and 265,000 tenth-ounce. That’s around ten times more bullion Gold Eagles than Proof Gold Eagles—so far. In 2021, the total number of bullion Gold Eagles in all sizes sold was 1,862,500, compared to 110,734 proofs in all sizes—nearly 17 times fewer proofs!
