On the obverse, Lady Liberty is seen as she walks away from the Capitol building in Washington D.C. In the image by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, she is depicted with the sun gleaming around her from behind her back. She holds a flaming torch and an olive branch. The design was created in 1907 for Gold Double Eagle Coins.
The reverse design shows Miley Busiek’s family of bald eagles as the male returns with an olive branch in his talons. In the nest, a female and hatchling wait for him. This design was created especially for Gold American Eagle Coins.
Each coin contains 91.67 gold by weight, making them exactly 1/2 Troy ounce of pure 22-karat gold. Copper and silver are combined the gold for additional strength and durability.
