Classic Liberty and Modern Bald Eagle
Obverse: The impressive Liberty design here was originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. While Saint-Gaudens created it over a century ago, this is still widely considered to be the most beautiful Liberty design ever to appear on a U.S. coin. The United States Mint restored legacy details on this obverse design issue including modifications to the Capitol Building, stars, and sun rays, amongst other design elements, all based on the original bronze cast.
Reverse: The face value and gold weight are inscribed on the reverse. This Type 2 Eagle Portrait design was created by Jennie Norris and became the series’ standard in mid-2021 when it replaced the classic Family of Eagles design. The design shows a stunningly detailed closeup profile of a bald eagle.
