The United States Mint launched the American Eagle Coin program in 1986 with a few options. Today, you can get American Eagles in three different finishes, multiple sizes, and even various metal types. The American Gold Eagles come in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights. You can get the coins in proof, bullion, and uncirculated finishes. Finally, American Eagle Coins come in not only gold, but also silver, platinum, and palladium. Each of the metal types features unique designs on both the obverse and reverse faces.
Lady Liberty is proudly displayed on the obverse face of these coins. The image was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 for use on the Gold Double Eagle Coins that were released the same year. Lady Liberty is shown as she walks away from the Capitol building with the sun gleaming across her back. She carries an olive branch to symbolize peace. In the other hand, she is lifting a flaming torch.
On the reverse of the Gold Eagle, Miley Busiek’s bald eagle family design is featured. In the image, a large male bald eagle is returning to his family nest with an olive branch in his talons. In the nest, his hatchling and female mate are waiting for his return. This image was created specifically for these coins.
We will ship these coins in clear plastic flips for added protection during both shipping and storage. These flips will help keep dust and debris off the surfaces of the coins.
