American Eagle Gold Coins Offer Historical LinksIn addition to their strong investment potential, American Eagle Gold Coins also provide collectors with intriguing links to the past. Considered one of the most iconic designs in American coinage, this proof offers visual appeal and fascinating historical connections.
The obverse of this Gold proof features the well-known Augustus Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle design. Here, Lady Liberty appears in the center of the coin, boldly moving forward. She carries both a torch for victory and an olive branch for peace. Stars line the perimeter of the coin, the sun rises below and the U.S. Capitol emerges from the lower left of the design. The text "Liberty" appears along the top of the coin, and the year appears on the right side.
The reverse of this design depicts a male bald eagle delivering an olive branch to a female bald eagle and her young. The monetary value and Gold weight appear along the lower edge of the reverse, and the text "United States of America" appears along the top edge. The text "E Pluribus Unum" appears on the left side of the design, and "In God We Trust" appears on the right side.
While American Eagle Gold Proofs are increasingly popular today, they have not always featured prominently in collections or investment portfolios. In 1933, U.S. citizens were prohibited from possessing monetary Gold. Over 40 years later, private Gold ownership became legal once again, and the U.S. Mint resumed its Gold coin production. Since 1985, all American Eagles have been made exclusively from American Gold.
