The United States Mint launched the American Eagle Coin program in 1986 with 1 oz and 1/2 oz gold coins. Over time, other fractional gold coins were added to the series, such as 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz, and the mint also produced three different versions of each coin: bullion, proof, and uncirculated. Now, there are also four different metal types for American Eagle Coins, including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Each of the different metal types features different designs on both the obverse and reverse faces.

On the obverse face of these coins, you will find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Gold Double Eagle design, which was originally created for use on coins of the same name in 1907. Lady Liberty can be seen striding forward, seemingly off the face of the coins, in the image. She carries a flaming torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The sun is hitting her back.

The reverse imagery features a design by sculptor Miley Busiek. The image is that of a bald eagle family. A large male eagle returns to his nest with an olive branch clutched between his talons. In his nest, a female and hatchling await his return. This design was specifically created for use on Gold American Eagle Coins.

The coins all ship in plastic flips from our secure facility directly to your door. The flips will protect your coins during shipping and storage. Each coin contains 91.67% 22-karat gold by weight, which equals 1/2 Troy ounce of fine gold content. The coins also consist of different metals, including copper and silver, which add durability to the coins.
