Proof Gold Eagle coins are struck having the same design of the Gold Double Eagle coin first minted in 1907. Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse of the coin as walking with confidence with her hair flowing against the rays of the sun. She is holding an olive branch and a torch in her hands. Her image is encircled by the state stars and the word ‘Liberty’, and in the USA Capitol building on the down-left. This impressive design was created by the famous American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’. On the reverse side of the coin is depicted as a male eagle flying over its nest and carrying an olive branch in its talons. The female eagle is protecting its hatchlings in the nest. This representation of the bald eagle, the American symbol of patriotism and strength, showcases the importance of family values. The reverse design belongs to the contemporary sculptor Miley Busiek. The image of the eagles is surrounded by the face value of the coin and weight marks, along with the ‘United States of America’, “E Pluribus Unum’, and ‘In God We Trust’ inscriptions.
