She walks holding aloft a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. A ring of 50 stars is featured around the design field.
On the reverse side of the 2022 1/4 oz Gold Eagle is an image of the American bald eagle. The new design from Jennie Norris shows the bald eagle in left-profile relief with intricate detail in its plumage, as well as the hooked beak and piercing gaze of the bird.
