Bottom Border
Description

First released by the United States mint in 1986, the gold American Eagle was the first modern bullion coin to be authorized by the United States congress.

The obverse of the coin, originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the country's $20 gold piece minted from 1907 to 1933, is the image of a full length figure of Lady Liberty holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. In the background can be seen the images of a sun rising and the United States Capitol dome. The obverse side of the coin bears the inscription "Liberty" and contains both the date of issue and the individual mint mark of origin. The reverse side of the coin bears the image of a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch, flying towards his female mate in a nest with their hatchlings.
