Gold Eagle Obverse Design

The obverse of the American Gold Eagle features Augustus St. Gaudens’ iconic Lady Liberty design, a full-length figure striding forward confidently from the rays of the rising sun and the nation’s capital dome, with her hair and robe flowing freely in the breeze. Her right holds the touch of freedom to light the way while holding an olive branch in her left hand signifying peace. Surrounded by 50 stars to signify the 50 United States with the inscription “LIBERTY” at the top and both the date of issue and mint mark in the lower right. A ‘W’ mintmark indicates its production at the U.S. Mint’s facility in West Point, New York.

Gold Eagle Reverse Design

The reverse side features the namesake of the coin, American Eagles.  Designed by the American sculptor, then Miley Busiek, now Miley Tucker-Frost, in 1986. The image features a family of nesting bald eagles. The male bald eagle is soaring above the nest clutching an olive branch in its talons. The female eagle awaits with her young, vigilantly standing guard over the young hatchlings in the nest with her wings protectively encircling two eaglets, representing the importance and strength of the family. The reverse inscriptions read, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” at the top of the coin. The Mottos, “IN GOD WE TRUST,’ is on the right, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM, Latin for “out of many, one,” is on the left.  The coin specifications are at the bottom with the face value and weight of the coin. This combination of a classic and modern coin design has proven to be a winner. Since its release in 1986, the American Gold Eagle instantly became one of the most popular gold coins in the world and has retained this original, iconic design for over 32 years.
