Gold American Eagle coins got their design inspiration on the obverse face from what has become the most famous American coin design in the nation’s history. In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt launched a bold initiative to revamp and revitalize all of the designs on American circulation currency.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and Irish-American artist and engraver, was the first man he approached. His creation of Liberty was chosen as the face of the nation’s Gold Double Eagle coins, most important the $20 Gold Double Eagle. These coins have become the coveted in American history, as most were melted down during the Great Depression. Recent specimens of Saint-Gaudens’ $20 Gold Double Eagle have sold for upwards of $9 million.
Each 2017 ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coin in this product listing is in BU condition. Coins in BU condition show no signs of wear and tear, however you may notice the presence of minor flaws such as breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from striking the blanks during the production process.
The obverse of all 2017 ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coins includes the image of Liberty as she strides confidently forward from the nation’s capital of Washington DC. She holds her torch aloft as a guiding light for a young nation marching forward into an unknown future. She is surrounded by 50 stars, representing each of the states in the nation.
On the reverse of all Gold American Eagle coins you’ll find the design created by Miley Busiek just for the Gold Eagle series. This image includes a nest full of hatchlings in the center, with a female keeping a watchful eye over the young eagles. A male bald eagle is depicted flying overhead with an olive branch in hand.
