American Gold Eagle coins were introduced in 1986 by the United States Mint. For the first year of production, bullion coins were available in all four fractional weights currently available from the US Mint: 1 oz, oz, oz, and 1/10 oz.
Production of American Gold Eagles has ebbed and flowed significantly in its history. There have been three peaks in production history, with the first coming as the coins were introduced in 1986. The mid to late 1990s saw a second spike in production with the approach of Y2K, and the third peak just passed as the global economic recession resulted in increased demand for gold.
On the obverse of all 2017 oz American Gold Eagle coins is the image of Liberty as she walks forth into an unknown future from the capital of Washington DC. There is freedom in her form, as her robes and hair flow in the wind, and the US Capitol Building is visible at her feet as the rays of the sun outline her figure from behind.
The reverse of the American Gold Eagle coin features a family of nesting bald eagles. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, this design is exclusive to the American Gold Eagle and includes the image of a male bald eagle flying over the nest, where a group of hatchlings is at rest under the watchful eye of a female.
