1998 Proof American Gold Eagle

The 1998 Proof American Gold Eagle stands proudly within the esteemed lineage of the American Gold Eagle series, which commenced its journey in 1986 under the stewardship of the United States Mint. Esteemed by both collectors and investors, these U.S. Mint gold coins are celebrated for their impeccable design and the assurance of gold content guaranteed by the U.S. government.

Coin Highlights:

  • Year of Release: 1998.

  • Mint: Produced by the United States Mint. While proof versions are typically crafted at the West Point Mint.

  • 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 showcases the iconic full-length depiction of Lady Liberty by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, while the reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, portrays a male eagle soaring above a nest with a female eagle and hatchlings. The obverse displays the year and the word LIBERTY, while the reverse side features UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST.

  • Finish: Exhibiting proof quality, these 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 1998 were lower compared to bullion coins, enhancing their scarcity and desirability among collectors. For example, the 1998 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle had a limited edition mintage of 25,886.

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