On the reverse side of the coin is Jenny Norris’ eagle design that was introduced last year. This highly detailed version is a close up of the eagle’s head and you can make out the feathers on its face and how they form into bigger feathers around the neck area. The eagle has a piercing determined look on its face. Above the eagle’s head is ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’. Just below this text in a smaller font is the Latin phrase  ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM’ which means “From many, one.” Under this phrase is ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’. At the bottom of the coin is ‘5 DOLLARS’ and ‘1/10 oz FINE GOLD’.
