Buy The 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle

The 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle coin is a standout piece in the prestigious Gold American Eagle series, which began in 1986. This proof coin variant, highly sought after by collectors and investors alike, features a special minting process that gives it a stunning, mirror-like finish.

This particular year marks the 20th anniversary of the series, adding historical significance and collectibility to the coin.


Coin Highlights:

  • Metal Content and Purity: Each 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle is minted from 22-karat gold, composed of 91.67% gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% copper. This alloy, known as crown gold, has been traditionally used to make gold coins more durable.

  • Design and Features: The obverse of the coin features the iconic "Saint-Gaudens" design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, which showcases Lady Liberty holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other, with the U.S. Capitol building in the left background. The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, depicts a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. This design highlights the theme of family and tradition.

  • Proof Quality: The 2006 edition comes in proof quality, characterized by sharp, frosted devices on a mirrored field, achieved through multiple strikes with specially polished dies. This process results in enhanced beauty and detail, making proof coins more desirable to collectors.

  • Mintage and Availability: The 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle was produced at the West Point Mint, bearing the 'W' mint mark. The United States Mint produced 1,092,477 of these proof gold coins in 2006. The American Gold Eagle was also offered in four denominations, allowing for broad accessibility to collectors with different budgets. These denominations are 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz, each with a face value proportional to their weight in gold.

  • Collectibility and Value: As a proof coin from a notable year marking the 20th anniversary of the series, the 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle is highly collectible. It often carries a premium over its bullion counterpart due to its limited mintage, proof quality, and the special anniversary it commemorates.

  • Packaging and Presentation: The U.S. Mint presents these coins in a protective capsule housed in a satin-lined velvet presentation case, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. This packaging not only protects the coin but also enhances its presentation, making it an exquisite gift and a prestigious collector's item.

The 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle is not only a piece of precious metal but also a work of art, representing a rich tradition of American coinage. Its combination of historical significance, beauty, and purity makes it a coveted item for any serious collector or investor in precious metals.
