The 2023-W Proof Gold Eagles are now available to collectors. Special submission instructions must be followed. See the “Submission Instructions” section of this article.
The U.S. Mint has released the 2023-W Proof Gold Eagles: A $5 tenth-ounce coin, a $10 quarter-ounce coin, a $25 half-ounce coin, and a $50 one-ounce coin; all struck at the West Point Mint. The coins have limited mintages and will be offered individually and as a four-coin set.
Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) is offering special labels and designations for the new coins, including the NGC West Point Mint Gold Star Label and the NGC Early Releases and First Releases labels and designations.
The 2023 coins continue to feature Lady Liberty facing forward with a torch and olive branch in hand, including multiple enhancements to more closely reflect Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original design. In addition, the one-ounce coin has anti-counterfeiting variable reeding that was introduced in 2021.
The reverse design depicts a portrait of an eagle head in superb detail, which debuted alongside the program’s 35th anniversary in 2021. Artist Jennie Norris, who signs certification labels exclusively for NGC, created the new reverse image. The NGC Jennie Norris Signature Label is available for NGC-certified American Gold Eagles through select retailers.
