Gold American Eagles are produced by the United States Mint on an annual basis. With thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands, of these coins issued each year, there is a small percentage of coins that often end up with flaws from the mint. Some of these are incorrect strikes, others have flaws that result from the striking of the blank, and still others have Mint Errors that result from mediums getting in the way of the strike. These Mint Errors can deliver unique collectible value to some. Today, 2020 1 oz Gold American Eagles with Mint Errors are available to you online at Silver.com in near-perfect condition.

Most of the Gold Eagles from the United States Mint are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. While many of these coins have beautiful visuals and only the possibility of exceptionally minor flaws, there are other coins that suffer from unique errors. These result from flaws in the gold blank, flaws in the die, or mediums that interfere with the ability of the die to strike the design clearly and efficiently onto the blank. The coins often end up with distinctive flaws that become collectible in certain circles of numismatists.
All 2020 1 oz Gold American Eagles listed here come in near-perfect condition. Mint State 69 coins have full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade level include only minuscule contact marks and hairlines located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
The NGC has also identified these coins as Mint Error specimens, with the specific flaw of Reverse Struck Thru. A Reverse Struck Thru coin has an error on the reverse face where there is interference in the striking of the reverse design element on the gold blank. The error is often the result of grease present on the blank that prevents the design from being clearly struck or the result of cloth or wire fibers interfering with certain elements of the design being struck clearly.
On the obverse side of 2020 1 oz Gold American Eagles is Lady Liberty in the front-facing design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The reverse face includes the family of American bald eagles at their nest as designed by Miley Busiek for this series in 1986.
