American Gold Eagle coins are part of the wider American Eagle Series from the US Mint. The coins are available annually in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. The coins have all debuted at different times. Gold and Silver Eagles arrived in 1986, while the Platinum Eagle debuted in 1997. The Palladium Eagle is the newest, having debuted in 2017.
The American Eagle coins all feature an image of Liberty on the obverse and the bald eagle on the reverse. However, each metal has its own unique design, with the Gold, Silver, and Palladium Eagle featuring iconic American coin imagery from the 20th century. Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty design is on the American Gold Eagle.
On the obverse of 2018 ¼ oz American Gold Eagles is the image of Liberty by Saint-Gaudens. The Irish-American artist was approached in 1905 by President Theodore Roosevelt to help lead a program to revamp American gold coin design. His image of Liberty features the goddess of Liberty walking forward from the nation’s capital city with a guiding light torch held in her right hand and the olive branch of peace in her left.
The reverse of the American Gold Eagle coins features Miley Busiek’s design. A respected artist with numerous public and private pieces, Busiek created this image exclusively for the Gold Eagle in 1986. It features a male bald eagle flying over the nest with an olive branch as a female eagle guards the hatchling below.
