The last time America issued gold coins from the United States Mint was 1933 when the Eagle Series of gold circulation coins were still produced. By the end of 1933, the United States Treasury followed the orders of President Franklin D. Roosevelt to end gold coining in the country and collect all gold coins in circulation for melting to boost gold reserves in the Treasury.
Gold American Eagle bullion coins weren’t just the first gold coins produced by the US Mint in 53 years, it was also the purest gold coin struck by the US Mint in 152 years. All gold coins issued by the mint from 1837 to 1933 were .900 gold coins. Prior to that, 1834 was the last time a 22-karat gold coin was produced. All Gold American Eagle bullion coins have 22-karat gold content.
Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse side of the 2020 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Coins as designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This image was created in 1907 and features Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks toward the viewer with a large torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand.
American bald eagles feature on the reverse of all American Eagle Series bullion coins. The 2020 1/4 oz Gold Eagles have Miley Busiek’s family of American bald eagles in the design field. This includes a male eagle in flight above the nest as a female offers shelter to a hatchling in the nest.
These 2020 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles are Mint State 70 coins. Known as perfect specimens, each one has full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. Early Release specimens were received by the NGC for grading within the first 30 days of initial release by the US Mint.
