Gold American Eagles were introduced in 2006 by the United States Mint during the 20th-anniversary celebration of the American Eagle Series. The burnished version of American Eagle coin is available only in the silver and gold options, with both suspended in 2009 and 2010 as the US Mint redirected its available bullion blanks to meeting the demand for investment-grade versions of both coins.
The Burnished Gold Eagle was initially available in the four weights you will find in the bullion and proof versions. However, the 2009-2010 suspension of the coin resulted in the end of the fractional-ounce options. When the series returned in 2011, only the 1 oz gold coin was available. The highest mintage since the suspension was 2011 when 8,729 coins were produced.
The obverse of the 2020-W 1 oz Burnished Gold American Eagle comes with a vision of Lady Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Liberty walks toward the viewer as a symbol of her guidance for the nation. She carries a large torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. Behind her, rays of sunshine emerge from the horizon and the US Capitol Building is depicted at her feet.
On the reverse of 2020 1 oz Burnished Gold American Eagles is a depiction of American bald eagles. In this design, you notice a male eagle flying over the nest as a female and hatchling rest within the nest.
These 2020-W 1 oz Burnished Gold American Eagles are available in perfect condition with an SP70 certification. This grade indicates the coins showcase full, original mint luster and have no detracting flaws present. Please be aware that additional labels such as First Strike and First Day of Issue are available, but we cannot guarantee you receive a coin with these labels. If you buy more than one, you could receive several coins with matching additional labels.
