2020 $10 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Proof 70 Coin Description:
History of the Coin: The Gold American Eagle coin was originally produced in 1986, just a year after being authorized by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. The coin is minted in three sizes in addition to the 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle. Inspiration for the design of the coin comes from the 1907 Saint-Gardens Double Eagle which is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful coins in numismatic history. Each coin is minted from gold sourced in American and the weight and purity is guaranteed by the U.S. government.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens was a sculptor of American Civll War heroes. These sculptures caught the eye of President Rooseveit who hired Saint-Gardens to beautify American coins. His rendition of Lady Liberty is the quintessential personification of liberty. Her flowing hair and dress is complimented by a torch symbolizing hope carried in her right hand and an olive branch representing peace that is held in her left hand.
The obverse of the 2020 Gold American Eagle 1/4 oz. PF 70 coin is based largely on Saint-Gaudens’ original design. She has the same flowing hair and dress and is confidently striding forward with her right foot in front of her left. Lady Liberty is holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left just like the 1907 rendition of Lady Liberty.
The reverse of the coin is equally patriotic and features the bald eagle. Long a symbol of freedom, a male bald eagle is focal point of the reverse. Wings spread wide as he returns to the nest he shares with a female bald eagle and their eaglet who patiently await his return. IN GOD WE TRUST is above and to the right of the female bald eagle while UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is centered above the male bald eagle at the top of the coin.
Bullion coins are struck once which is in contrast to proof coins that are struck multiple times. The increased attention in production of proof coins results in the background of the coin having an almost mirror-like finish. Proof 70 coins are considered be perfect, pristine examples of these beautiful coins. Each of these coins has been graded by an independent thirty party to be in perfect proof 70 condition.
