President Theodore Roosevelt personally selected Saint-Gaudens in 1905 to redesign American gold coins. His Lady Liberty depiction was finalized in 1907 and appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933, becoming the most sought-after and valued American coin design of all time.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens is the most legendary American coin designer around. As the federal government sought to overhaul all American coin designs starting in the early 20th century, Saint-Gaudens was the first man chosen for the job.
On the obverse side of all 2017 1 oz American Gold Eagle coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens Lady Liberty image. Originally created in 1907 for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle Coin, Saint-Gaudens image was the result of President Theodore Roosevelts persistent pursuit of Saint-Gaudens as the artist to redesign American gold coins.
The reverse side of all American Gold Eagles features a depiction of the national emblem, the bald eagle, that is not found on any other coin. In sculptor Miley Busieks design, a male bald eagle flies over the family nest with an olive branch in its talons, while a female stands guard below, vigilantly watching over the nest full of hatchlings.
Each 2017 1 oz American Gold Eagle in this listing is a perfect Mint State 70 product. According to the NGC, these coins exhibit full, original mint luster and lack any type of contact marks, blemishes, spotted surfaces, hairlines, or other detracting flaws. Early Release coins arrived at the NGC within the opening 30 days of issue from the United States Mint in order to be certified for condition and grade.
