2020 Proof Gold & Silver Eagle Designs
Both the gold and silver proofs will bear their traditional designs with the addition of the privy mark on the right side of the obverse. The gold proof takes the double eagle design of Augustus Saint-Gaudens on the obverse. Liberty stands facing the holder with her torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. She stands against a backdrop of the rays of the morning sun, while a miniature rendering of the Capitol Dome is off to the side. Fifty stars represent the states along the rim. On the reverse, a male eagle carries an olive branch back to his nest, where his mate watches his return and tends to their young. Busiek created the reverse design.
Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty features on the obverse of the Silver Eagle. An American flag draped Liberty carries laurel and oak branches in her left arm while extending her right hand forward, above the rising sun. The reverse bears an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti.
