Gold American Eagle coins debuted in 1986 along with the Silver American Eagle. As the official bullion coins of the United States, these products feature images familiar to any American and recognized around the globe.
Though the Silver and Gold American Eagles have different specific designs, the obverse of both features images based upon the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom and democracy in the United States. The reverse of both coins includes a depiction of the American bald eagle, the official emblem of the nation.
On the obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of Liberty created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

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.
