Each of the 1994 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins in this product listing from JM Bullion is in BU condition. Coins in this condition exhibit 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 coining process.
The American Gold Eagle coin debuted in 1986 with a bullion and proof version available to investors and collectors. While the proof Gold Eagle had just a one ounce coin available at the time, the American Gold Eagle bullion coin was offered in 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights.
On the obverse of all 1994 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins you’ll find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ memorable Liberty image. Created in 1907, Saint-Gaudens was commissioned directly by President Theodore Roosevelt to create an image for American circulation coins that would revitalize the nation’s currency. His depiction of Liberty was offered from 1907 to 1933 on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin.
The reverse of all American Gold Eagle coins includes a design found only on these coins, created in 1986 by Miley Busiek. Her creation features an entire family of American bald eagles. While the nest full of hatchlings is guarded closely by a female bald eagle, a male is depicted flying overhead with an olive branch in its talons.
All American Gold Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. Since 2001, the majority of all coins in the American Eagle series have been produced by the West Point Mint facility.
