The obverse pays homage to the $20 Gold Double Eagle designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 depicting Lady Liberty striding forward, carrying a flaming torch and an olive branch, the rays of the rising sun behind her. The word "LIBERTY" arches overhead with "2016" and "W" below the olive branch. The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, portrays a patriotic bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where his mate and young await his return.
