Design of the Random Date Gold Eagle
The gold eagle has a stunning obverse, that actually has classic roots. Back when Theodore Roosevelt was president, he set about to make a new gold coin with a much more impressive design than the current coins. He stated that U.S. coins had become drab and had designs with little meaning. Because of this, he had the artist and sculptor Saint-Gaudens craft a new design for a $20 gold coin, or as we know it, a Double Eagle. upon completion, Teddy looked at the coin and declared it the most beautiful coin ever made! That design was brought back in 1986, when it was struck onto the obverse of the American Gold Eagle. It features a detailed image of Liberty standing, holding a torch.
The reverse had more humble beginnings, as it was made specifically for the reverse of the Gold Eagle. It was a highly detailed image of an Eagle flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchling. Over the course of the Gold Eagle’s production, this design has become very popular, and is recognized by almost any coin collector.
