On the obverse, Lady Liberty is seen striding forward, seemingly off the face of the coin. The sun is at her back, and she is carrying a flaming torch and an olive branch. The design was adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle design, which was created in 1907.
The reverse design is that of a male bald eagle returning to his nest with an olive branch in his talons. In the nest, a female and hatchling are awaiting his return. This design was created by sculptor Miley Busiek specifically for use on American Gold Eagle Coins in 1986.
