Gold American Eagle coins broke the mold of nearly 150 years of American gold coinage when introduced in 1986. The US Mint had not issued a gold coin since 1933 when President Franklin D. Roosevelt ended the gold standard and ordered the collection of all gold circulating coins to melt them into gold bullion bars to support Treasury stockpiles of gold.
More importantly, the Gold American Eagle was the purest US gold coin issued since 1837. Up until 1834, all American gold coins were issued with crown gold alloys, meaning a purity of 22-karat (.9167 gold content). Starting in 1834 and concluding in 1837, the US Mint moved to lower gold content in all coins to .900. The release of the 22-karat Gold American Eagles in 1986 was the purest gold coin issued in the US in nearly 150 years.
On the obverse of 2019 1 oz Gold American Eagles is the design of Lady Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This design depicted Liberty in a new manner with her figure facing forward and on the move out of Washington DC. It appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle until 1933.
The reverse of 2019 Gold Eagles includes a family of bald eagles. Created exclusively for this series by Miley Busiek, the design depicts a male eagle in flight above the family nest as a female eagle shelters a young hatchling within.
