Gorgeous American Gold Eagle Imagery
Obverse: The obverse depicts Lady Liberty in a frame of fifty stars, confidently stepping forward while grasping a flaming torch of enlightenment and olive branch of peace. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "W" and "2020." The timeless image is borrowed from the 1907 Gold Double Eagle, which was designed by prolific sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
Reverse: The reverse features a male eagle clutching an olive branch, in a descending flight towards his nesting mate and eaglets. The design is credited to sculptor Miley Busiek, whose inspiration for the design was derived from the acceptance speech of Ronald Reagan at the Republican National Convention in 1980. The family of eagles graphic has taken on the moniker of the Type-1 style of Gold Eagle, which appeared on all releases of the series from its introduction in 1986 until mid-2021.
