Designed by the iconic sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gauden, Lady Liberty is featured prominently on the obverse. Armed with a sweltering torch of endless inferno, the beautiful woman who bears an olive branch in her other hand, walks confidently away from a background field in a long, gorgeous dress that hugs her figure. Lady Liberty just happens to be one of the most recognizable and revered depictions to ever be featured on American currency. Due to its popularity and instant familiarity, Augustus Saint-Gauden achieved international acclaim immediately and for good reason
On the reverse of the Gold Eagle coin, you can find another one of the most famous depictions on American coinage. Designed by Miley Busiek, a revered female artist who created the depiction for this particular usage on the coin, it showcases a male bald eagle high in the sky in glorious flight. Below, a female eagle watches her male counterpart from her full nest of hatchlings with a sense of deep thought glimmering in her eyes if you look closely and understand the heart and soul put into art of such nature.
The 1990 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle coins had an exceptionally low mintage figure and production had dropped more than one million coins from its introduction in 1986.
