Design of Proof American Gold Eagle Coins

The obverse was originally created by August Saint-Gaudens in 1907 and can be seen on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin. In this design, Liberty is featured and is holding the Torch of Freedom and olive branches, which symbolize peace. Behind Liberty, rays of sunlight shine bright and stretch to the rim of the design.

The reverse design was created by Miley Busiek especially for the American Gold Eagle series in 1986. This design features an entire family of Bald Eagles, which have been the national emblems of the United States since 1782. In this patriotic design, a male eagle is returning to his nesting mate and offspring.
