The American Gold Eagle coin has long been anchored by the 1 oz American Gold Eagle. When the coins were released in 1986, the bullion and proof coins were available in 1 oz weights, though the proof version of the coin was only available in the 1 oz weight.
With a mintage of 416,032 coins in the 2003 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin release, the popular bullion coins had increased in mintage and demand for a second consecutive year as it rebounded from its lowest mintage year ever in 2001. The 2003 release also saw the continuance of a trend in which the 1/10 oz coin proved more popular than the other weights.
On the obverse of the 2003 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin you’ll find the image of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This image was created in 1907 by Saint-Gaudens as the first image in a series of new coin designs from the United States Mint that would revitalize American coin design.
The reverse of the American Gold Eagle coin includes the design of a family of nesting bald eagles. Created in 1986 for the Gold Eagle coins by Miley Busiek, the image includes a nest with bald eagle hatchlings and a female standing guard, while a male is depicted flying overhead.
All American Gold Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. Modern versions of the coin are all struck at the West Point Mint facility.
