The obverse of this spectacular 1997-W 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle Coin showcases Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ masterpiece, the Walking Liberty design. Created in 1907 for the $20 double eagle, it portrays Lady Liberty striding confidently forward, torch held high in one hand and olive branches in the other. Inscriptions read 1997, W, and LIBERTY.


The reverse of the 1997-W Proof American Gold Eagle Coin features Miley Busiek’s exquisite sculptural depiction of a family of eagles. A male eagle soars overhead while a protective female keeps watch over her hatchlings in their nest below. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, MB, JW, 1 OZ FINE GOLD, and 50 DOLLARS.


Since its 1986 debut, the American Gold Eagle series has mesmerized collectors. The 1 oz proof was first issued that year, with fractional weights following in 1987 and 1988. Apart from 2009, proof Gold Eagles have had an unbroken annual release ever since.
