New Issue: 2018 American Eagle gold Proof coins available now

The U.S. Mint issued its 2018 American Eagle gold Proof coins on March 1.

The American Eagle gold Proof coins are the collector versions of the mint’s American Eagle gold bullion coins. Launched in 1986, these 22-karat gold coins display the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint, where they are produced. The coins’ obverse design features a version of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair and holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The reverse design by sculptor Miley Busiek features a male eagle carrying an olive branch while flying above a nest containing a female eagle and eaglets.

Highlights of this year‘s coin release include new packaging and the implementation of product and household order limits.


Beginning this year, the mint will now package individual coins and the four-coin sets in a satin-lined burgundy velvet presentation case housed inside a burgundy outer box. All options include the customary certificate of authenticity.


The Mint established product limits for each coin option, which are in the table below:

18EB One-ounce coin 25,000 coins
18EC One-half ounce coin 7,100 coins
18ED One-quarter ounce coin 7,100 coins
