The United States Mint launched the American Eagle Coin program in 1986 with gold and silver bullion coin options. Since the program’s inception, the mint has expanded the product offerings to include bullion and proof versions of coins in four different types of metal: gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Most of the coins are 1 oz, but the gold coin program also features numerous fractional weight options, making the perfect opportunity for those on a budget to purchase gold coins. The designs differ on each different metal type, but the themes are the same.
By purchasing the 2012 1/4 oz Gold Eagle Coin from Silver.com, you can get your own piece of American nostalgia today. As some of the most sought-after coins on the planet, you can still invest in these special coins right now. Each coin contains 22-karat gold with small amounts of alloy. This alloy allows the coins to be harder and more scratch-resistant.
The obverse face of each coin features the image of Lady Liberty as she strides away from the Capitol building with the sun shining on her back. In her left hand, she carries an olive branch. Her right hand clutches a flaming torch. The image was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coins that originally ran from 1907 to 1933. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include the year of mint “2012” and “Liberty.”
On the reverse of each coin, you will find the image of a bald eagle family as created by sculptor Miley Busiek specifically for these coins. In the image, a male bald eagle returns to the nest with an olive branch clutched in his talons. As he lands, we can see the female and hatchlings resting in the nest.
