1990 Proof American Gold Eagle

The 1990 Proof American Gold Eagle shines as a distinguished addition to the esteemed American Gold Eagle series, which debuted in 1986 under the auspices of the United States Mint. Revered by collectors and investors alike, these U.S. Mint Proof gold coins are revered for their exquisite design and the assurance of gold content guaranteed by the U.S. government.

Coin Highlights:

  • Year of Release: 1990.

  • Mint: Crafted by the United States Mint. While proof versions are typically produced at the West Point Mint, older proofs may lack the "W" mint mark.

  • Denominations: Available in 1 oz ($50), 1/2 oz ($25), 1/4 oz ($10), and 1/10 oz ($5).

  • Purity and Weight: Struck with 22 karat gold (91.67% gold, with the remainder being a blend of silver and copper for durability). The gold weight corresponds to the denominational values (1 oz, 1/2 oz, etc.).

  • Design: The obverse features the iconic full-length depiction of Lady Liberty by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, while the reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, depicts a male eagle soaring above a nest with a female eagle and hatchlings. Notably, the 1990 Proof version, like its counterparts from 1986 to 1991, displays the year in Roman numerals: MCMXC.

  • Finish: Exhibiting proof quality, these US Mint Proof gold bullion coins undergo multiple strikes with meticulously prepared dies, resulting in a lustrous mirrored surface and finely detailed frosted imagery.

  • Diameter: The 1 oz coin boasts a diameter of 32.7 mm, with smaller denominations varying in size (27 mm for 1/2 oz, 22 mm for 1/4 oz, and 16.5 mm for 1/10 oz).

  • Thickness: Thickness varies by denomination, with the 1 oz coin typically measuring about 2.87 mm.

  • Mintage: The proof mintages for 1990 were lower compared to bullion coins, rendering them more scarce and highly sought-after by collectors. For instance, the 1990 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle had a mintage of 62,401.

  • Packaging: Each coin is housed in a protective capsule within a luxurious satin-lined velvet presentation case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

Collecting and Investment:

The 1990 Proof American Gold Eagle, marking the third year of the proof series, holds a special allure for collectors and investors alike, embodying the rich history and artistic excellence characteristic of American coinage.
