The Story Behind the 2020 American Gold Eagle 1/10 oz Coin
Originally authorized by the Coinage Act of 1792, gold coins were used as legal tender until 1933, when President Franklin D. Roosevelt removed them from circulation via executive order. In 1972, President Richard Nixon reversed this order, which had originally banned the private ownership of gold bullion. Americans could once again build their own personal collections and reserves. The 1/10 oz American Gold Eagles were first minted in 1986, after the passage of the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, under President Ronald Reagan. This act authorized the United States Mint to produce American Gold Eagles but only with gold mined inside the U.S. The U.S. Mint originally used Roman Numerals to date the coins but switched to the traditional Arabic Numerals in 1992. American Eagle coins are available in gold, silver, platinum or palladium, in addition to various sizes. All Gold Eagles have a weight and purity that is backed by the Federal Government.
2020 Gold Eagle 1/10 oz Coin Design Details
On the obverse of the American Gold Eagle, you will find an image of the robed Lady Liberty, walking forward with her torch and olive branch. The United States Capitol is seen in the distance, in the far left-hand corner, with stars adorning the outer edge. This design is a rendition of the iconic and unmistakable artwork of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, created in 1907. The image is taken from the $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin, commissioned by Theodore Roosevelt to generate coinage similar to ancient Greek and Roman currency. The word “Liberty” and the year “2020” are additionally engraved. The reverse image, designed in 1986 by sculptor Miley Busiek, depicts a female eagle in her nest as she guards her hatchlings. A male eagle, holding an olive branch in its beak, protectively flies overhead. Busiek, who had previously designed a medallion for the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan, was inspired by a speech Reagan had given at the Republican National Convention in 1980, where he emphasized the need to unify for the greater good. Instead of designing a single eagle, as was the common pattern, Busiek decided to depict an entire family, signifying strength, unity and security. Inscriptions on the reverse include “United States of America”, “E Pluribus Unum”, “In God We Trust” and “1/10 oz. Fine Gold – 5 Dollars”. The diameter is .650 inches with reeded edging.
