Gold American Eagles

Gold American Eagles are struck bearing a modified version of a design by Augustus St. Gaudens which graced the old $20 U.S. gold coins issued from 1907 to 1933.

The one ounce size Gold American Eagle is very close in size to the older $20 coin, but was arbitrarily assigned a nominal face value of $50. Logically, the tenth-ounce version has a $5 face value and the half-ounce a $25 value.

But, following the lead of the Royal Canadian Mint in dismissing with any common sense in assigning legal tender valuations to gold bullion coins, the Mint slapped a $10 face value to the quarter-ounce Eagle.

The United States Mint first released the beautiful American Eagle Gold Coin in 1986. The obverse or front side of the coin has an image of Lady Liberty holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other.

The reverse side of the coin bears the image of a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch, flying towards his mate in a nest with their hatchlings.
