Patriotic Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the obverse image, which gets its name from him. Originally appearing on the double eagle, it features Liberty standing confidently at the center holding her torch of freedom high in her right hand and an olive branch off to the side in her left. Her garment and long hair blow in a strong breeze as she stands against a backdrop of the rays of the morning sun. In the lower left is a miniature rendering of the Capitol Dome. The fifty stars along the rim are an adaptation from the original double eagle design, which included just forty-six.
A family of eagles constitutes Miley Busieks's reverse design. A male eagle prepares to land in its nest carrying an olive branch in its talons. Below, its mate tends to their young as she watches his return. The weight and face value are among several inscriptions.
