Augustus Saint-Gaudens is the man whose design is featured on the obverse side of all Gold American Eagle coins. Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty designed debuted on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin in 1907, and was commissioned in 1905 by President Theodore Roosevelt. The president wanted to revitalize all American gold coin designs, and he hand-picked Saint-Gaudens to lead the charge.
His Lady Liberty design features America’s beloved Liberty in full-length figure, her Greek gown flowing in the breeze as she strides confidently forward out of the setting sun. In Saint-Gaudens’ original design, the US Capitol Building is featured at her feet, and she is surrounded by 46 stars.
The design was altered three times before appearing on the Gold American Eagle for the first time in 1986. In 1908, the phrase “In God We Trust” was added to Saint-Gaudens’ design. In 1912, two stars were added to represent Arizona and New Mexico’s addition to the Union. For the Gold American Eagle, two more stars were added to reflect Hawaii and Alaska joining the US as states.
On the obverse of each coin is Saint-Gaudens’ refined and modernized design. The reverse of all Gold American Eagle coins features a design of the American bald eagle created by Miley Busiek.
Each coin in this listing is in perfect condition. PF70 coins feature their full, original luster and no detracting flaws of any kind. The ultra-cameo designation identifies a coin with a frosted design and deeply-mirrored background field.
