On the obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Proof 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.
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.
