American Gold Eagle coins are available from the United States Mint annually, with bullion, proof, and burnished versions of the coin struck each year. There are a total of four weights available.

The 1987 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin marked the second-ever release of the official gold bullion coin of the nation, and while mintage was down from the release year, most coin programs experience a drop in demand after the very first issue of the coin. Today, the 1 oz American Gold Eagle remains one of the most popular coins in the collection of four weights.
Each 1987 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin in this listing from JMBullion.com is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice minor flaws ranging from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks from the striking of blanks during production.
On the obverse of all American Gold Eagle coins is the image of Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Irish-American artist and engraver was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to come up with a new design for American coins, and the Liberty design he created was on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933.
The reverse of 1987 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins includes the design of a family of American bald eagles. This image was created by Miley Busiek specifically for the American Gold Eagle series, and features a nest full of hatchlings with a female eagle watching over the group while a male flies overhead.
