Despite the extremely high demand for the 1986 American Eagle Gold coin, the second edition of the series did not experience instant high demand like its predecessor which is common amongst popular series. However, they remain one of the favorites out of the entire collection. Each coin has 22-karat gold content with a composition of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver. These coins will ship to you in protective plastic flips.


On the obverse of all American Eagle Gold Coins, we find the iconic image of Lady Liberty which was promptly designed in 1907 by famed French sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens who was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to come up with a new design for American coins.


On the reverse, the design which is featured is the heraldic image of a family of American bald eagles. This image was created by Miley Busiek specifically for the American Eagle Gold series, and features a nest full of hatchlings with a female eagle watching over the group while a male flies majestically over its family in all its glory and splendor.
