Gracing the obverse of the 1996 Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin is the timeless image of Liberty, envisioned by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 for the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin. Inscriptions read LIBERTY, and 1996.


On the reverse of the 1996 American Eagle Gold Coin, Miley Busiek’s design depicts a protective bald eagle family, symbolizing strength and unity. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1 OZ. FINE GOLD, and 50 DOLLARS.


The 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin represented a pivotal moment in the series’ trajectory. While the 1 oz coin had experienced a decline in demand, other weights, like the 1/10 oz, soared in popularity, reshaping the landscape for investors.
