Why buy this $5 American 2020 1/10 oz Gold Eagle?
This $5 American Gold Eagle provides the most affordable option for collectors wishing to partake in the popular series. The series dates back to 1986, when it was first issued following the adoption of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. Thanks partly to its backing for weight and purity by the US government and partly to its exquisite designs, the coin quickly emerged as a favorite among collectors. This coin was struck at the West Point Mint on a 1/10 oz planchet of .9167 fine gold.
Featuring Adolph Weinman's Famous Double Eagle Design
The coin's obverse bears what is widely considered the most stunning design ever to appear on an American coin, the Saint-Gaudens. The image is named for Augustus Saint-Gaudens, its creator. Taken from the 1907-1933 double eagle, the image features Liberty standing at the center facing the holder. She stands with one foot set upon a rock and a strong wind blowing her long hair. She holds her torch, a beacon of freedom for the oppressed throughout the world, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace. She is joined by the Capitol Dome, which is set off to the left, and the rays of the morning sun, which spread out behind her. The image is encircled by fifty stars, which represent the states. Four were added to the original design to account for states that have since joined the union. Obverse inscriptions read, "LIBERTY" and "2020."
On the reverse is a family eagles. The design, which was created by Miley Busiek, shows a male bringing an olive branch back to his family, which awaits his return in their nest. Between the left and right sides of the portions of the two designs are statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is inscribed on the top half of the rim, while "1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD" and "5 DOLLARS" are inscribed on the bottom half.
