The Gold American Eagle coins are named as such to differentiate them from the previously-issued gold circulation coins from the United States Mint. The Eagle was a term used for gold coins from the US Mint dating back to 1794. The series used Eagle, Half-Eagle, Quarter-Eagle, and Double Eagle to refer to the denominations in that series of $10, $5, $2.50, and $20, respectively. The modern bullion coin is often referred to with its weight included to differentiate. For example, 1 oz Gold American Eagles.
All 2020 1 oz Gold American Eagles in this listing have Mint State 69 certifications. An MS69 coin has full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Acceptable flaws at this level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
On the obverse of 2020 Gold American Eagles is the depiction of Lady Liberty. Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Liberty marches toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand an an olive branch in her left. The rays of the sun shine behind her figure and she is surrounded by a circle of 50 stars.
The reverse face of 2020 1 oz Gold American Eagles includes a family of bald eagles. Designed exclusively for the Gold American Eagle in 1986 by Miley Busiek, the design field includes a female eagle in the nest with a young hatchling and a male eagle flying above as it returns to the nest.
Gold American Eagles are produced by the United States Mint. Though mint marks are not used, the US Mint produces all of its Gold American Eagles at the West Point Mint.
