Design of the 2020 Gold American Eagle Coins
The obverse of the 2020 Gold Eagle is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design of 1907, often regarded as the most beautiful design in American coinage. The design features Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch. The reverse of the coin is equally stunning, featuring a male eagle carrying an olive branch while flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. This design highlights the strength and importance of American families.
Design of the 2020 American Silver Eagle Coins
The obverse of the 2020 Silver Eagle depicts a classic design created by Adolph A. Weinman. Used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins from 1916 to 1947, the Walking Liberty image is one of the most cherished and well-known designs ever to grace American coinage. The reverse of the 2020 American Silver Eagle coin is just as impressive, featuring an American eagle, a symbol of American freedom and patriotism.
