Issued at a time of falling mintages in the early 2000s, the 2004 release had a mintage of just over 400,000 and was just under 1,000 coins higher in demand than the previous year in 2003. Right now, you can get 2004 American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins online at Provident Metals.

Lady Liberty is depicted in front-facing relief on the obverse of 2004 American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coins. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and was the last to grace the Double Eagle Gold Coin issued by the US Mint. The design shows Liberty walking away from Washington D.C. The US Capitol Building is at her feet in the background with her frame silhouetted by rays of sunshine. She holds out a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. A ring of 50 stars encircles the entire design element. Inscriptions read Liberty and 2004.


A family of American bald eagles is depicted in and around the nest on the reverse side of 2004 American Eagle Gold Coins. This design was developed exclusively for this coin series in 1986 by Miley Busiek. It includes a male eagle in flight above the nest, with a female eagle sheltering a hatchling within the nest below. Inscriptions include United States of America, In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, and 1 oz. Fine Gold 50 Dollars.


The 2004 American Eagle 1 oz Gold Coin is far from the lowest-minted coin in the series. The lowest mintage came in 2019 amidst lagging demand for gold and silver. The 1 oz gold coin sold a total of just 108,000 coins that year. However, the 2004 coin was released at a notable time of depressed demand for gold. After hitting remarkable highs in 1998 and 1999, the series slumped dramatically in the 2000s. From a record high of 1.5 million coins in 1999, the series plummeted to just 143,605 coins sold in 2001.
