When the United States Mint released the American Gold Eagle coin, it broke with more than 150 years of tradition. In 1832, the US Mint moved away from the crown gold alloy content in its gold coinage, with the full move to .900 gold content completed by 1837.
The United States stuck to the .900 gold content for more than a century and a half. Gold coinage in circulation ended in 1933 in the US, as the administration of President Franklin Roosevelt ended the gold standard, and then collected all gold coins to melt down and bolster the nation’s gold reserves.
Each of the 1995 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins in this collection is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, though you may notice a range of minor flaws including breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from striking during the production process.
On the obverse of all American Gold Eagle coins is the image of Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the design depicted Liberty as she walked confidently forward from the nation’s capital of Washington DC.
The reverse of the 1995 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin includes a depiction of the bald eagle. Miley Busiek’s depiction of the eagle family includes the image of a male flying over the nest while a female eagle watches over the young hatchlings in the nest.
In the 1995 1 oz American Gold Eagle release, mintage fell from a short-time boost in 1994. The demand for coins would shrink again the following year to its lowest level ever. The only weight in the American Gold Eagle collection to increase in mintage in 1995 was the 1/10 oz.
