American Gold Eagles are among the most popular and widely collected coins in history. They’re also considered by many to be some of the most beautiful coins ever issued. 

The American Silver and Gold Eagle program celebrates its milestone 30th anniversary in 2016. But there’s so much more to this Lady Liberty than meets the eye...

President Reagan’s gift to America
American Silver and Gold Eagles were first authorized by Congress in 1986 as a way of giving individuals an easy and affordable way to own silver and gold in the form of genuine U.S. legal tender coins. 

The Gold Eagle’s design has a prestigious heritage. The image of Lady Liberty striding confidently forward with the sun’s rays behind her was adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ and Theodore Roosevelt’s design for the 1907 $20 Double Eagle. The obverse of the Gold Eagle coins is a modern depiction by sculptor Miley Busiek, featuring a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. This symbolic depiction of the American family has proven incredibly popular for the last three decades.
