This coin represents the 20th anniversary of the American Gold Eagle mintage program. First Strike coins are those struck with brand new dies at the beginning of a new minting cycle. They are highly prized by collectors everywhere.
From its inception, the American Gold Eagle has captured the fancy of coin lovers everywhere. The American Gold Eagle is an official gold bullion coin of the United States. It was originally authorized by an act of Congress in 1985 and was first released to the public by the United States Mint in 1986. It has remained enormously popular ever since!
The Gold Bullion Act that created this series of coins states that the gold used to mint them must come exclusively from mines here in the United States. As a result, this coin represents a significant tangible asset in addition to it being a highly acclaimed work of art.
On the obverse, the American Gold Eagle features the famous ‘Standing Liberty’ design of the universally hailed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who created it with sophisticated detail and impeccable artistry. This exceptional coin has become one of the most beloved and alluring gold coins in the modern era. The reverse features a design from Miley Busiek displaying a family of eagles, with one soaring above its nest while the other protects its young.
Struck in durable 22 karat gold, designed to hold up to the rigors of circulation, these coins are minted to precise specifications. Each of them contain exactly the amount of pure gold stated on each coin, and their purity is guaranteed by the full weight of the United States Government.
