With a mintage of 74,029 coins for the 2003 American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold coin release, the popular bullion coins had increased in mintage and demand for a second consecutive year as it rebounded from its lowest mintage year ever in 2001.

On the obverse of the 2003 American Eagle Gold Coin, youll find the image of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This image was created in 1907 by Saint-Gaudens as the first image in a series of new coin designs from the United States Mint that would revitalize American coin design.


The reverse of the American Eagle Gold coin includes the design of a family of nesting bald eagles. Created in 1986 for the Gold Eagle coins by Miley Busiek, the image includes a nest with bald eagle hatchlings and a female standing guard, while a male is depicted flying overhead.
