Familiar Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
The obverse design was taken from Augustus Saint-Gaudens's double eagle design and is widely considered to be the most beautiful design ever to have appeared on an American coin. Liberty stands confidently at the center holding her torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A strong breeze blows her garment and her long hair as she elevates one of her feet on a rock. The rays of the rising sun emerge from the horizon in the background, and the Capitol Dome is in the lower left. Fifty stars encircle the image, an adaptation from the forty-six that appeared on the double eagle.
Miley Busiek's reverse design honors the national bird, for which the coin is named. A male eagle carries an olive branch in its talons as it returns to its family, which waits in the nest below. There, the mother eagle nestles her young.
