On the obverse of the 2002 American Eagle 1/4oz Gold Coin is the iconic Lady Liberty design. It was commissioned by then-President Theodore Roosevelt, who chose Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create a new Liberty design for coins.


On the reverse of all American Eagle Gold coins, youll find the image of a nesting American bald eagle group. Inside the nest are a group of hatchlings. Outside the nest, there is a confident female standing guard over the group, while a powerful male bald eagle flies overhead with an olive branch in its talons.


With an iconic debut in 1986 that shot the American Eagle Gold coin program to high demand and international popularity, collectors and investors have been eager to add this precious metal to their holdings. During 2002, the American Eagle Gold coin experienced a pick in interest amidst strong performance for the price of gold for the year. The price of gold broke definitively above the $300 level, beginning the year at $278 per ounce and closing at $347.20. This was the highest price for spot gold seen since 1997. A steady march upwards would continue for many years.
