Design

The Gold American Eagle is often regarded as the most beautiful coin made by the US Mint. President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned Augustus Saint-Gaudens to design a coin that recalled the Greek and Roman empires, and it is his beautiful rendering of Lady Liberty that has graced the American Gold Eagle bullion coin since 1986. This beloved coin features the image of Lady Liberty with her torch of freedom in one hand and a full olive branch in the other. The word LIBERTY proudly rests above her head, and the Capitol Building lies behind her in the lower left background. The reverse of the coin displays an eagle holding an olive branch in its talons, coming to land in its family nest.

Minting

A highly limited number of proof gold American Eagles are minted each year. The gold used to mint the Gold Eagle must be sourced in the United States. Proof American Eagles go through a more detailed minting process where each blank is fed manually and struck several times to create highly detailed coins. Each proof coin comes in a beautiful display case and includes an official United States Mint Certificate of Authority.

Quality Guarantee

Guaranteed by the Federal Government, American Eagles Proof are globally respected for their quality and purity.
