The obverse of the 1997 American Gold Eagle features the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens motif. Lady Liberty is shown stepping out from a rising sun while holding a torch in one hand. In her other hand, Lady Liberty is clutching an olive branch. The inscription “LIBERTY” sits within a ring of stars, and the year of issue can be found within the sun’s rays.
The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, displays a male Bald Eagle flying back to his nested family with an olive branch in his talon. Inscriptions of “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” are paired with the coin’s weight, purity, and denomination.
Older Gold Eagles are much harder to find than those issued in more recent years. In perfect MS70 condition, they become ever scarcer. After years of moving from vault to vault, many early-date Gold Eagles show minor nicks and abrasions. In order for a coin to qualify as MS70, it must be virtually immaculate with no tolerance for major flaws or blemishes.
These 1997 1 oz Gold Eagles, graded MS70 by NGC, have managed to survive in pristine condition. They are perfect for those who want to own a 1 oz Gold Eagle in superb condition.
Each 1997 Gold Eagle in MS70 is delivered in its sonically-sealed NGC slab.
