As one of the most sought-after coins in the entire world, Gold American Eagle coins are prized for their beauty and collectability. Each coin is a piece of American history and nostalgia for both collectors and investors. These coins are made of 22-karat gold mixed with small amounts of alloy. The alloys help create harder coins that are more scratch-resistant.
The American Eagle Coin program was launched back in 1986 by the United States Mint. Originally, the series was only available in gold and silver versions. However, the program has expanded to include both platinum and palladium versions—although the designs are different based on the metal of the coin. Each release features both proof and uncirculated versions of the coins. While the other metals are all available in 1 oz versions, the Gold American Eagles come in fractional options.
The obverse face of each 2010 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Coin features the $20 Gold Double Eagle design that was originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. These coins were produced from 1907 to 1933, and now they are commemorated by the Gold American Eagle design of Lady Liberty in front of the Capitol. Lady Liberty appears to walk off the face of the coin with a flaming torch in her right hand, an olive branch in her left hand, and the sun shining brightly at her back. Inscriptions on this side of the coin include “Liberty” and “2010.”
On the reverse of each 2010 Gold American Eagle, you will find the image of a family of bald eagles. Sculptor Miley Busiek’s design features a female eagle with her hatchlings as a male approaches the nest with an olive branch in his talons. The design was created in 1986 when these coins were first produced by the U.S. Mint.
