A Brief History of the American Gold Eagle

Where is Does the Source of Gold Come From?

All American Eagle gold bullion coins are 22 carats (or.9167 fine) gold with a silver and copper alloy added to improve the coins' stability and scratch resistance. Each coin is guaranteed to contain an exact amount of gold mined only in the United States. They also fulfill the U.S. Mint's stringent quality requirements.  

Design and Specifications of the Gold American Eagle  

Lady Liberty holds an olive branch and a torch on the obverse of the American Eagle gold coin, which is inscribed with the word "Liberty," the issue year, and the mint mark, with a rising sun and the United States Capitol dome in the backdrop.

On the reverse of the coin, a male bald eagle grips an olive branch as he flies towards his mate, who is holding her hatchlings in a nest.

Who Designed the Gold American Eagle?  

Augustus Saint-Gaudens, an American artist and monument builder who lived from 1848 to 1907, sculpted the iconic Double Eagle on the face of the Gold American Eagle.

The back of the Gold Eagle was created in 1986 by contemporary American artist Miley Busiek, now known as Miley Tucker-Frost.
