Why buy this 2020 1/4 oz Gold $10 American Eagle?
The American Gold Eagle is at the top of many collectors' annual 'must have' lists. The series brings together the most beautiful design in American numismatic history with modern execution and the backing of the US government for weight and purity. Together, these factors make the coin one of the world's most popular gold issues. This piece was struck from 1/4 oz of .9167 fine gold at the West Point Mint. It is the second smallest of the four sizes in which the series is struck.
Patriotic Saint-Gaudens Design
The coin's obverse features the work of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Taking its name from the man who created it, the Saint-Gaudens first appeared on the double eagle in 1907 and remained there through 1933. It then returned for the Gold Eagle Series. At the center is Liberty, who stands confidently with one foot set upon a rock and her long hair blowing in the wind. She faces the holder with her torch, a symbol of freedom, in one hand and an olive branch, which represents peace, in the other.
A male eagle brings an olive branch back to his family, which waits in their nest, in Miley Busiek's reverse design. Between the male eagle and his nest are a pair of statutory inscriptions, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Three other inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD," and "10 DOLLARS," are inscribed along the rim.
