On the obverse side of 2005 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagles is the nations most iconic coin design. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty depicts her figure in front-facing relief as she marches forward from the nations capital city. She holds a torch high in her right hand and a branch in her left, both of which are symbolic of her role in leading the nation into a bright and peaceful future.
The reverse face of the 2005 Proof American Gold Eagle coinage includes the image of a family of bald eagles at their nest. While a female stands guard over a hatchling, protecting it under her wing, a male eagle is depicted in flight above the nest.
