Gold American Eagle coins were first introduced in the United States in 1986 following passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. Though it was authorized under separate legislation, the Gold American Eagle was introduced at the same time as its sister program, the Silver American Eagle.
Each Gold American Eagle coin bears the image of Lady Liberty created by Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Saint-Gaudens was an Irish-American sculptor born in Dublin to French and Irish parents who later moved to New York City. He was chosen by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1905 to spearhead the change in American gold coin design but died in 1907 before his greatest design (Lady Liberty) ever appeared on a coin.
This year also marks the final time the United States Mint will issue bullion American Gold Eagles with their original reverse design! Later in 2021, the Mint will start issuing bullion Gold Eagles with an entirely new reverse design!
Gold American Eagles are now struck by the United States Mint entirely at its West Point Mint facility. Each of these coins is in BU condition, indicating that there are no signs of wear and tear.
