The American Eagle One Ounce Gold Uncirculated Coin is the collector version of the American Eagle One Ounce Gold Bullion Coin. The 22–karat gold coin is struck on specially burnished blanks and has a finish similar to its bullion counterpart. However, unlike its bullion counterpart, the American Eagle One Ounce Gold Uncirculated Coin bears the “W” mint mark of the United States Mint at West Point. Each coin is encapsulated in plastic and placed in a presentation case. A certificate of authenticity is included.
The coin’s obverse (heads side) bears the full–length figure of Liberty by renowned sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens. The coin’s reverse (tails side) features sculptor Miley Busiek’s design of a male eagle carrying an olive branch, flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her eaglets.
The United States Mint was created by Congress in 1792 and became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873. It is the Nation’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce. The United States Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver and gold bullion coins. The United States Mint’s numismatic programs are self–sustaining and operate at no cost to taxpayers.
Note: To ensure that all members of the public have fair and equal access to United States Mint products, orders placed prior to the official on–sale date and time of April 30, 2015, at noon EDT, shall not be deemed accepted by the United States Mint and will not be honored.
