With the 20th anniversary of the Gold American Eagle program in the rearview mirror, demand for the coins experienced a resurgence. Total mintage in 2007 was higher than it had been in almost a decade, making more coins available for investors and collectors looking for the popular coins in perfect condition.
Each of the coins available in this listing is available with a PF70 grade, which means they have their full, brilliant luster and no blemishes, contact marks, hairlines, or detracting flaws. The ultra-cameo designation is reserved for coins whose frosted design appears to float above the clear background field of the coin.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens was tapped by President Theodore Roosevelt to breathe new life into American gold coin design in the early 20th century. His response was to create the depiction of Lady Liberty that now appears on the Gold American Eagle.
On the reverse side is Miley Busiek’s depiction of a bald eagle family, with the male returning with an olive branch as the female guards the nest and its hatchlings. Engravings on this side include “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “In God We Trust.”
These coins are all struck at the United States Mint using brand new dies each year to ensure the quality and stunning appearance of the design.
