The history of the Gold American Eagle coin
The 2016 Gold American Eagle coin combines past and present designs for a must-have American Gold coin. This 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle coin is inspired by the famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 Double Eagle coin on the obverse, with Lady Liberty standing regally against the sun’s rays. The obverse of these American Gold coins feature the words, “In God We Trust,” which were not on the original design of the Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 Gold Double Eagle coin; a controversy that eventually was corrected by Congress after the coin was released. On the reverse, the 2016 Gold American coins feature a modern design by Miley Busiek, featuring the patriotic eagle, which shows up on much of Busiek’s work, in addition to religious themes.
