History of the 1993 $50 American Gold Eagle

The 1993 $50 American Gold Eagle is worth the effort to find well-struck with attractive surfaces. These American Gold Eagle 1 oz coins were heavier than many other coins which could cause nicks and scratches in handling. The American Gold Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. The obverse of the American Gold Eagle was designed by Augustus Saint Gaudens, a rendition of the full-length Lady Liberty with her hair flowing and a long dress. She holds a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. There is a small image of the Capitol building in the background. The reverse of the coin was designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, who designed the coin with a male American Bald Eagle clutching an olive branch, flying over a nest with a mother eagle and her eaglet.
