History behind the design of the 2016 Proof Gold Eagle
The design seen on this 2016 proof Gold Eagle was actually created over a century ago by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He created this design on the behest of President Teddy Roosevelt, who wanted to make america’s coinage beautiful again. This design was finalized in 1907, and was struck onto what is now known as the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. This design is considered an american classic, and we are proud to see it on the modern bullion coin!
