Bullion Coin


 All of the coins on the guide are narrated in the first person point of view; click this link for an explanation.



Obverse

american eagle gold bullion coin obv

The obverse side of the 1/4 oz. American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin is based on world-renowned American sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design for the prized 1907 $20 gold coin.

Featured on this side of the gold coin is Lady Liberty stepping onto a pedestal with her flowing hair blown by the wind.

In her right hand, she is raising a torch above her head; her left arm is stretched out with olive branches in her hand (narrated in the first person point of view).

Below her, at the lower right-hand side of the bullion coin is The U.S. Capital building.

The gold bullion coin is inscribed with the word "LIBERTY" across the top of the coin.

The coin's Year of Issue is to the left of Lady Liberty.

Note: From 1986 - 1991, American Eagle Gold coins had the year stated in Roman Numerals. From 1992 to present the year of issue has been numerical.








Reverse

The reverse depicts a family of eagles symbolizing American Tradition and Unity; was designed by Miley Busiek.

Miley Busiek design shows a father eagle about to land into a nest with olive branches in his talons.

In the nest are a mother eagle and her nestlings.

Across the top of the gold bullion coin, the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, are inscribed.

Along the bottom of the gold bullion coin is its Weight and Purity of  "1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD~10 DOLLARS," ten dollars represents the Legal Tender value of the coin.

Furthermore, every United States coin displays "E PLURIBUS UNUM," which is Latin for "Out of Many, One," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."

Under the nest of eagles are two initials, on the right is "MB" representing Miley Busiek, the designer of the reverse side.

The initials "JW" on the left are those of the original engraver. (Note:  the coin is narrated in the first person point of view.)

The Edge of the gold coin is Reeded.

Note: American Eagle bullion coins do not have a Mint Mark.  Only the Collector's Proof and Collector's Un-Circulated Versions of the American Gold Eagle have a mint mark on the reverse side.
