American Gold Eagle coins were first introduced in 1986 following passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 by Congress. Every coin in the series is minted using only gold that is sourced from within the US. Since 1986, the bullion coins in the American Gold Eagle program are struck each year in four different weights, including 1 oz, oz, oz, and 1/10 oz. The oz coin has the lowest mintage in the program, making these 2015 oz American Gold Eagles hard to find.
These particular 2015 oz American Gold Eagles have been issued a Mint State 70 grade from the PCGS. An MS70 grade is reserved for only those coins that are considered perfectly struck bullion products. As part of the First Strike series, these coins were received by PCGS within the first 30 days of the coins release. First Strike coins are often in high demand and do not last long.
On the obverse side of the coin is Lady Liberty, as designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Originally used on the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933, this image features Lady Liberty striding forward with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The reverse side depicts a family of nesting bald eagles, as designed by sculptor Miley Busiek in 1986.
The US Mint operates four major facilities at this point in time. These facilities include the San Francisco, Denver, Philadelphia, and West Point Mints. The latter is the primary facility responsible for the production of American Gold Eagle coins.
