The Gold Eagle coin was a result of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, and the first American Eagle Gold coins were released from the U.S. Mint in 1986.

APMEX has Gold coins for sale in many different American Eagles. The obverse of this coin was inspired by the gorgeous Lady Liberty design of the 1907 American Double Eagle Gold coin created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The reverse of the Gold Eagle coin that features the eagles was designed by Miley Busiek for the 1986 release.
