Beloved Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
Collectors throughout the world consider the obverse design, which is named for the man who created it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, among the most beautiful ever to appear on a coin. Liberty stands powerfully at the center in a strong wind. She faces the holder, extending toward them her torch, which is a symbol of freedom for those free and oppressed throughout the world. In her other hand, she holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace, off to her side. The Capitol Dome, which stands atop the building that houses a legislature that is a model for governments throughout the world, is set off to the left, and fifty stars line the rim.
The reverse design is the work of Miley Busiek. Created specifically for the the Gold Eagle series, it consists of a family of eagles. The female tends to her young as she watches her mate return. He carries an olive branch in his talons as he prepares to land. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," joins the weight, "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD" and face value, "25 DOLLARS," among other inscriptions, on the reverse.
