In 1986, the United States Mint introduced the American Gold Eagle Coins in BU and Proof versions. The BU version of the coin was the only one to offer all four weights in the first year, with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold. The proof fractional-ounce series launched in 1987 and 1988.
Originally, the American Gold Eagles were available with Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ historic Lady Liberty design on the obverse and a family of bald eagles on the reverse. In mid-2021, the United States Mint introduced a new design from Jennie Norris. The image features the head of the eagle in left-profile relief.
Obverse design elements on the 2023 American Gold Eagle Coin include the historic 1907 design of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This visual shows Liberty’s full-length figure in front-facing relief. She is depicted walking toward the viewer with a torch raised overhead in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand.
Reverse visuals on the 2023 1 oz Gold Eagle Coin showcase the image of the American bald eagle. Introduced in mid-2021, this new design comes from Jennie Norris and is her first contribution to a major US Mint coin. This refreshing new take on the bald eagle hones in on the extreme focus of the aerial predator, with the head of the eagle shown in left-profile relief as its steely gaze is fixed on the distance.
These 2023 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available individually in protective flips. Multiples of 20 come with plastic tubes and all coins in this listing are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
