    The United States Mint, responsible for the production of the Certified Proof American Gold Eagle, is one of the world's most respected mints. With a history dating back to the founding of the nation, the mint has consistently upheld high standards of quality and excellence. The Proof Gold Eagles are struck with precision using specially polished dies and planchets to achieve a brilliant, mirror-like finish on the coin's fields and a frosted appearance on the design elements.
