Design of American Gold Eagle Coins. The American Gold Eagle coin features an exclusive reverse design and an obverse image of Liberty plucked from the history of American coinage. On the obverse side of all uncirculated American Gold Eagle coins is the image of Lady Liberty which Augustus Saint-Gaudens created in 1907. Saint-Gaudens was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to create a new design for the nation's primary gold coins which would bring American coin design into the 20. Century and accurately reflect the country's growing international prominence.
Saint-Gaudens began working on the design in 1905. His depiction of Liberty captures her figure in a front-facing design that depicts her walking along the Potomac River as she leaves Washington DC. This vision of Liberty symbolizes her role in leading the nation into a brighter future.
Her right hand holds a torch high to light the way while her left clutches a large olive branch symbolizing peace. In the background, there are rays of sun breaking over the horizon as the US Capitol Building is visible at her feet. The word "Liberty" is engraved above her head and the year of issue is engraved within the rays. Saint-Gaudens' original design included 46 stars around her figure.
In 1912, the US Mint added two more stars to the design to reflect the addition of Arizona and New Mexico to the Union.
