2024 United States Mint American Eagle Gold Proof Coins on Sale May 2

April 25, 2024

WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) announces the opening of sales for the 2024 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins on May 2 at noon EDT. Orders are limited to three items per product code per household for the first 24 hours from the on-sale date and time.

Struck in 22-karat gold at the United States Mint facility at West Point, these popular coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins. In 2021, for the first time since their introduction more than three decades before, the reverse (tails) of American Eagle Gold Proof Coins debuted a newly designed portrayal of an eagle, created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST,” along with the face value and weight.

The coins’ obverse (heads) features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. To render a closer reflection of Saint-Gaudens’ original vision, legacy details of the obverse design also were restored in 2021, including modifications to the U.S. Capitol Building, stars, torch, sun rays, and other design elements based on the original bronze cast.

In addition to redesigning the reverse and enhancing design details on the obverse of these coins in 2021, the Mint introduced anti-counterfeiting features that include a reeded edge variation on the one ounce coin.

The 2024 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins will be available in the following five product options:




One Ounce Coin TBD 9,500



One-Half Ounce Coin TBD 5,000



One-Quarter Ounce Coin TBD 8,000



One-Tenth Ounce Coin TBD 18,000

*The product limit is the total available for each individual product.

**The mintage limit represents the total number of coins produced for this denomination, including those contained in the American Eagle Gold Proof Four-Coin Set.

The individual coins are encapsulated, packaged in a black presentation case, and housed in a box with the United States Mint seal on the lid.
