Each 1987-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin in this product listing bears a PR70 grade from the Professional Coin Grading Service. Coins in this condition are considered perfect and exhibit full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind. The DCAM label stands for deep-cameo and refers to the presence of strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.


The obverse face of the 1987-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin includes one of the most iconic images of Liberty in American history. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this image of Liberty depicts her figure in front-facing relief as she walks away from Washington D.C. with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A ring of 50 stars encircles the design and rays of sunshine emanate from the background.


On the reverse side of 1987-W Proof American Eagle Gold Coins is a depiction of the family of American bald eagles used exclusively on this coin. Miley Busiek created this image of a male eagle flying over the family nest as a female eagle guards over a young hatchling.


The Proof American Eagle Gold Coin debuted in 1986 with only these 1 oz gold coins available. In 1987, the 1/2 oz gold coin was introduced and in 1988 the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins were introduced. The 1986 1 oz gold coin has the highest mintage in the history of the Proof American Eagle Gold Coin Series, while these 1987-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins have the second-highest mintage in the history of the series.
