When the United States Mint launched the American Eagle Coin program, the series was limited in its offerings. In the beginning, the mint only offered 1 oz and 1/2 oz gold options. Today, you can also purchase 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz American Gold Eagles, as these were added to the product lineup in subsequent years.
The mint also offers three different finish options for its gold product line: proof, bullion, and uncirculated. There are also four different design versions, each associated with a different metal type. American Eagles come in silver, gold, platinum, and palladium.
On the obverse, you will find the image of Lady Liberty that Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed in 1907 for use on the Gold Double Eagle Coins that were released that year. In the design, Lady Liberty can be seen striding forward with the sun hitting her back. She carries a flaming torch and olive branch as she walks away from the Capitol building in Washington D.C.
Sculptor Miley Busiek’s family of bald eagle design is showcased. This image was originally created in 1986 specifically for use on these coins. The image shows a large male bald eagle as he returns to his nest. In his talons, he carries an olive branch. In his nest, a female and hatchling await.
These coins will arrive at your door in clear plastic flips. The flips are meant to provide protection for the surface of the coins. Flips help keep dirt and dust off the coins during both shipping and storage.
Each coin contains 91.67% gold by weight. The coins will each contain exactly 1/2 Troy ounce of 22-karat gold. The composition of the coins also includes copper and silver. Both of these metals add strength and durability to the coins.
