2020-W Burnished American Gold Eagles

In 2006, the United States Mint introduced a new finish to their American Eagle series to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series. Refereed to by the Mint as a collectors "uncirculated" finish, these coins are also commonly referred to as Burnished Eagles. This finish debuted on both the Burnished Gold Eagle and Burnished Silver Eagle varieties.

While the burnished variety was not released in 2009, or 2010 due to high demand for bullion releases, the series again continued in 2011 and has been an annual release ever since.

The 2020 issue boasts a limited mintage of JUST 7,000 pieces and will notably be the final Burnished American Gold Eagle to feature the original Family of Eagles reverse design.

American Gold Eagle Design

American Gold Eagle Design

The obverse features what many collectors and numismatists believe to be the most beautiful coin design ever struck in gold by the US Mint. This blockbuster image was originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. The obverse of the series shows Lady Liberty depicted with the Torch of Enlightenment overhead and an olive branch in her hand.

The reverse features Artist Miley Busiek’s (now working under the name Miley Tucker-Frost) “Family of Eagles” design. It depicts a male bald eagle in the process of langing in his nest. In the nest is his mate and young.

2020 marks the final year that the Family of Eagles design will appear on the reverse of a Burnished American Gold Eagle! A new design will debut on the series at some point in 2021.
