Product Description

Introducing the Proof American Gold Eagle Coin, a true gem in the global gold market. Originally minted in 1987, BGASC proudly presents the 1987-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin!


  • Elegant presentation box and Certificate of Authenticity included!
  • Minted in 1987 by the US Mint!
  • Limited edition with only 147,498 coins produced!
  • Contains 1 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Carries a face value of $50 (USD) backed by the federal US government.
  • Obverse features Lady Liberty.
  • Reverse showcases a bald eagle family.

Each 1987-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin comes impeccably displayed in a presentation box with a Certificate of Authenticity, showcasing the year of issuance. The iconic design is the result of the skillful work of two renowned sculptors and engravers: Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the obverse and Miley Busiek for the reverse.


On the obverse, Lady Liberty stands strong and confident, holding a torch and an olive branch. Walking away from the Capitol, she is bathed in sunlight, with inscriptions of “LIBERTY” and the mintage year.


The reverse side depicts a majestic male eagle soaring above its family, including a female eagle and hatchlings. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” along with the coin’s denomination and weight.


While the Proof American Gold Eagles haven’t reached the peak popularity of their debut in the 1980s, the 1987 1 oz Proof Gold Eagles still hold the second-highest mintage in program history. They follow the 1986 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle, making them a notable addition to any collection.
