$25 American Proof GOLD Eagle Coin - 1/2 Troy Oz Description:

The $25 American Proof GOLD Eagle Coin - ½ troy oz, official gold bullion of the United States, as authorized under the Gold bullion coin Act of 1985. First produced in 1986, these coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government to contain the stated quality and weight of gold in troy ounces. By law, the gold must come from sources in America, alloyed with silver and copper to produce a coin that is more resistant to wear.

This proof coin is based on one of the most well-loved coins in American history - the iconic 1907 $20 Gold Double Eagle, which was a collaboration between President Theodore Roosevelt and designer Augustus Saint-Gauden. Made of .9167 pure gold, with a weight of ½ troy oz or 16.97 grams, this coin has a mint state of 70 as graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service.

The obverse of the coin features a design based on Augustus Saint-Gauden's Liberty, shown with flowing locks of hair and in flowing robes, she holds a torch aloft in her right hand (representing enlightenment) and an olive branch in her left hand (representing peace). You can also see an interpretation of the capitol buildings in the bottom left-hand corner, in addition to the word "LIBERTY" curving around the top of the obverse design. The reverse of the coin is inspired by sculptor Miley Tucker-Frost's (formerly Busiek) design, featuring an American bald eagle, clasping an olive branch, returning to his family in their nest. The lettering "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "½ OZ FINE GOLD - 25 DOLLARS" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."

Historically, proof coins were early samples of coins issued to check their quality, though now they tend to relate to limited or early editions especially struck for collectors.

Popular with investors this coin is produced by the U.S. Mint, established in 1792, which strikes and distributes precious metal, collectible coins, and national medals; it operates at six facilities around the United States.
