The olive branch is included in the design on both the obverse and reverse of the coin. On the reverse of the gold coin, the olive branch is clasped in the talons of an American bald eagle who is returning to the nest he shares with a female eagle and an eaglet. The obverse is a depiction of Lady Liberty moving forward in confidence, holding a torch in one hand, signifying enlightenment with an olive branch in the other, a symbol of peace.
