The 2009 1 oz American Gold Eagle had not only the highest mintage figure since 1999, it had one of the five highest mintages of all time in the American Gold Eagle collection. The panic surrounding the Great Recession and the massive loss of jobs and value in the markets pushed countless investors toward safe-haven metals.
On the obverse of the 2009 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin you’ll find the image of Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This creation appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933, and it is widely considered the greatest coin design in the history of US circulation currency.
The reverse of the American Gold Eagle coin includes a design that is exclusive to this coin only. Designed in 1986 by Miley Busiek, it focuses on a nest full of American bald eagle hatchlings. The hatchlings are under the watchful eye of a female bald eagle as a male bald eagle flies overhead with an olive branch in its talon.
All American Gold Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. Although originally struck at different mints, the coins are no produced solely by the West Point Mint facility in the state of New York.
