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 all four 2017-W Proof American Gold Eagle coins you’ll find the image of Liberty, created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for use on the nation’s gold coins in the early 20th century.
The reverse of all Proof Gold Eagles include an image of a family of nesting bald eagles. The design depicts a male eagle in flight over the nest, which contains a grouping of young hatchlings under the watchful eye of the female bald eagle. This design was created in 1986 exclusively for the Gold Eagle by Miley Busiek.
In this 2017 4-Coin Proof American Gold Eagle Set are the 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz coins in beautiful proof condition, with a reeded edge and a stunning finish. The coins ship to you inside of a brown velvet, satin-lined box with a Certificate of Authenticity.
