Gold American Eagles are the official gold bullion coin of the federal government of the United States. Congress authorized the creation of the coin program with the passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. The American Eagle coins first hit the market in 1986 and have been struck each year since.
All 2015 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle coins bear the same images used on predecessors in the series. Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the Lady Liberty image on the coin’s obverse side. She is seen walking in flowing robes with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The rising sun can be seen at her back. The reverse side features sculptor Miley Busiek’s image of an eagle family in its nest.
On the obverse side of the 2015 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle coin is Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty. Her image is accompanied by the engravings “LIBERTY” and the year of minting (2015). The reverse side sees the eagle family encircled by engravings that include “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” “In God We Trust,” and the weight, purity, metal content, and face value ($5) of the coin.
