Gold American Eagles are the official gold bullion coin of the United States. The coin program was authorized by Congress in 1985 with the passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. The first coins were minted and sold a year later in 1986. Since then, the Gold American Eagle has earned recognition around the world as a gold bullion coin with the highest quality in design and minting.
On the obverse side of the coin is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ image of Lady Liberty. First seen on the Saint-Gaudens $20 Double Eagle gold coin commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt, Lady Liberty can be seen walking toward the viewer with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Engravings include “Liberty,” the year of minting, and stars around the rim representing US states.
The reverse side of the coin includes Miley Busiek’s image of an eagle family in its nest. The male eagle is seen landing on the nest with an olive branch in its talon as the female stands guard over the hatchlings. Engravings include “United States of America” atop the nest with the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content below it. The image is flanked by smaller engravings which include “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust.”
Founded in 1792, the US Mint is the official production facility of the federal government. All circulation and commemorative coins backed by the US government are produced at one of the mint’s four facilities. The NGC’s MS70 grade means these coins have a perfect mint, with no abrasions on its surface and brilliant strikes.
