American Gold Eagle coins were first struck in 1986. When Congress passed the Gold Bullion Coin Act in 1985, it paved the way for a production of a sovereign gold coin that would have the same obverse and reverse design each year, and contain only gold sourced from within the United States.
The coins available to you in this listing are in perfect PR70 condition. The PCGS found that each of these coins has its full, original luster, and has no blemishes, contact marks, or flaws of any kind. The deep-cameo finish speaks to the coins appearance. A strong, frosted design set appears to float above a deeply-mirrored, clear background.
On the obverse side of each coin is the image of Lady Liberty striding forward, with the rising sun at her back. Featuring a torch in one hand and olive branch in the other, this depiction of Lady Liberty was created in 1908 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The reverse side of each coin bears the image of a family of bald eagles. Created by Miley Busiek, the depiction features a male bald eagle returning to the nest where a female stands vigilant guard over the hatchlings in the nest.
