On the obverse of 1996-W Proof American Gold Eagle Coins, you will find Lady Liberty. This iconic design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the Double Eagle Gold Coin.


The reverse side of the 1996-W 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle Coin depicts an American bald eagle. Designed by Miley Busiek, the image shows a male bald eagle flying above the nest as the female eagle in the nest guards the hatchlings.


Demand for the Proof Gold Eagles in 1996 was down from the 10th anniversary in 1995. The 1/10 oz Gold Eagle had the highest mintage of the four, while the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle had the lowest mintage of the four. These 1/4 oz Gold Eagles had the second highest.
