Launched in 1986, the American Eagle Bullion Program began with the sale of gold and silver bullion coins. The American Eagle Bullion Coin, the official gold bullion coin of the United States, is available in several weights including 1/10 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/2 oz., and 1 oz. All of the gold used to create this piece comes from US mined gold. On the obverse, is a striking full-length image of Lady Liberty, originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Dressed in a flowing garb, Lady Liberty holds a torch in her right hand and an olive branch on her left hand. The reverse side features a male eagle with an olive branch, soaring over a female eagle and their hatchlings. The design, created by sculptor Miley Busiek, represents family unity and tradition.
