About the 2017 Burnished American Gold Eagle

While the proof version of the American Gold Eagle has been offered in some capacity since the series began in 1986, the burnished version is another story. Burnished American Gold Eagles are collectible like their proof counterparts, but this finish was not offered until 2006 - 20 years into the series! These coins tend to have much lower mintage figures than the proof version. In recent years, only the 1 oz. American Gold Eagle has been offered with a burnished finish.

Design of the Burnished Gold Eagle

While these coins have a different finish, they display the exact same design as other Gold Eagles. Unlike the mirrored proof version, however, the surface of this Burnished Gold Eagle has a soft, matte surface that is evenly applied around the entire design.
