The 1996 $ 25 American Gold Eagle

The American Eagle Coin program began in 1986 and ever since has become among one of the most favored coins to collect! Being a proof coin, struck with collectors in mind, these gold eagles have limited mintages which adds to their collectability.

This 1996 $ 25 Gold Eagle

The actual gold weight of this coin is ½ troy ounce and the purity sits at .9167. This 22 karat gold alloy is traditionally referred to as, “Crown Gold”, and previous to the first Gold Eagle being minted in 1986, it had not been used in U.S coins since 1834. The design you will find on the obverse of this coin is an adaptation of the famous Gold Double Eagle design constructed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens’. The design depicts Lady Liberty in front of the capitol building with her hair flowing; she holds a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Also on this side of the coin you will see an inscription of a small, “W”, which is the West Point mintmark signifying where this coin was minted. The reverse design was designed by a sculptor named Miley Busiek, and it features a male eagle carrying an olive branch as he fly’s above a nest that holds his female eagle and their hatchlings.
