2016 Proof Gold American Eagle

The 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle represents a significant entry in the prestigious series of gold coins produced by the United States Mint. As a symbol of American heritage and freedom, the 1 Troy Ounce Proof Gold American Eagle combines historical significance with modern minting technology, resulting in a 1 oz Proof gold coin that is sought after by collectors and investors alike.

Coin Highlights:

Content and Purity: Like its predecessors, the 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle contains gold sourced exclusively from American mines. The coin is composed of 22-karat gold, maintaining the traditional alloy of 91.67% gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% copper. This 22-karat blend, known as crown gold, ensures durability while preserving the coin’s lustrous appearance.

Diameter: The 1 oz t American Gold Eagle has a diameter of 32.7 mm

Thickeness: 2.87 mm

Mintage: 51,810

Design: The obverse of the coin features a rendition of Lady Liberty designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, which first appeared on the $20 gold piece in 1907. Liberty is depicted holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, symbolizing enlightenment and peace, respectively. The Capitol building is visible in the background. The reverse, designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, showcases a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch to a nest with a female eagle and their hatchlings, representing family tradition and unity. The edges are reeded.

Sizes and Denominations: The 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle was available in four denominations: the 1 ounce ($50 face value), 1/2 ounce ($25 face value), 1/4 ounce ($10 face value), and 1/10 ounce ($5 face value). This variety allows for flexibility in investment and collecting strategies.

Minting and Packaging: Minted at the West Point Mint, each coin bears the "W" mint mark on the reverse, denoting its place of origin. The proof quality of the coin is highlighted by its mirror-like finish, achieved through a meticulous minting process involving multiple strikes from specially polished dies. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a satin-lined, velvet-covered presentation case, and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity (COA).

Collectibility and Value: The limited mintage and proof quality of the 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle contribute to its desirability among collectors. The coin's value is influenced by factors such as its condition, rarity, and the current market demand for gold. As part of a series celebrated for its beauty and craftsmanship, the 2016 edition is a distinguished addition to any collection.

Legacy and Recognition: The American Eagle Gold Proof Coins are an enduring part of the United States Mint's legacy, bridging past and present through their classic design and modern minting excellence. Recognized worldwide, these coins are not only collectible items but also tangible representations of American culture and values.

Collectors and investors continue to treasure the 2016 Proof Gold American Eagle for its artistic merit, historical significance, and investment potential. The careful attention to detail and quality by the U.S. Mint ensures that this coin remains a prominent and respected member of the American Eagle Gold series.
