In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt tapped Irish-American artist and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to help him revitalize the design of the nation’s gold coinage. Saint-Gaudens created numerous designs for various US coins, but the most famous was his $20 Gold Double Eagle design.
Debuting in 1907 on the aforementioned coin, his image of Lady Liberty depicted her in full stride as she walked into an unknown future with confidence. With the setting sun at her back, Liberty departed the capital city of America with a torch in her right hand to guide the way, and an olive branch in her left to symbolize peace.

On the obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of Liberty created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Created in 1907, Saint-Gaudens was commissioned directly by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 to help begin an overhaul of American coinage that modernized it, while also making it distinctly American. This is why they retain their value even over the gold price per ounce.
The reverse of all Gold American Eagle coins includes the image of a family of bald eagles in their nest. Created specifically for the Gold Eagle program by Miley Busiek, this design features a male in flight over the nest, where a female is keeping a watchful eye on the hatchlings within.
