The year 1988 marks the third release of the Proof American Gold Eagle coin collection which was first introduced to a global audience in 1986. The coins are struck in a composition of 22 Karat gold which indicates that it is made up of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver. This has contributed to its high value, encouraging the US Mint to offer a full range of fractional gold bullion coins including 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz sizes.


On the obverse field of the 1988-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin, you will be treated to the iconic image of Lady Liberty. This design was forged by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, a French-American engraver who was commissioned by President Roosevelt to bring something new and exciting in 1907. The image features a gorgeous woman walking forward in a lovely gown. She holds up a burning torch in one of her hands, high to the sky. The capital of Washington is found in the backdrop of the image.


For the reverse field of the 1988-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin, you will be treated to the visionary image forged by Miley Busiek. It features a family of American eagles. The female bald eagle keeps a keen eye over her nest of hatchlings while right above their heads, the fierce father protects his family from danger or harm. This symbolizes protection and patriotism.
