Proof American Gold Eagle Coins boast much lower mintage figures than the BU counterparts of the coin and the American Silver Eagle coins, BU or Proof. The most highly-coveted coins in the Proof Gold Eagle Series are those that earn a perfect certification from either the NGC or PCGS.

Each 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin listed here comes with a perfect certification from the NGC. Proof coins in PF70 condition exhibit full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind present on the design elements or fields of the coins. The coins also have a UCAM designation included in the slab. This stands for Ultra-cameo and refers to the strong, frosted designs overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
In addition to the brilliant contrast between the design elements and the fields of the coins, these specimens have an Early Release label. Coins with this label were received by the NGC for grading within 30 days of the original release date from the United States Mint.
The 2021 Proof Gold Eagle is available for the final time with the Miley Busiek design element on the reverse of the coins. The design of the American bald eagle found on the reverse face of American Silver Eagle and American Gold Eagle coins is set to be replaced by mid-2021. The new image of the bald eagle on the Gold Eagle coin will replace Miley Busiek’s family of eagles with a close-up depiction of a powerful, majestic eagle in left-profile relief.
Liberty is found on the obverse side of 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins. This effigy from Augustus Saint-Gaudens was created in 1907 for the $20 Double Gold Eagle Coin. It depicts Liberty in front-facing relief walking toward the holder with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other.
For the last time, Miley Busiek’s family of bald eagles is found on the reverse of 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagles. This depiction shows a male eagle in flight over the nest as a female eagle offers shelter to a hatchling within the nest.
