The world's most trusted gold bullion coin is the American Gold Eagle. These 21-karat (.917 fine) gold coins are among the most popular items produced by the United States Mint thanks to their reliability and durability. Each 2017 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coin (Brilliant Uncirculated) contains 1 troy ounce of actual gold weight (AGW) and is issued as legal tender with a face value 50 Dollars.
The obverse design, created at the turn of the century by famous artist August Saint-Gaudens, shows Lady Liberty confidently striding forward, carrying a lit torch in front of her to illuminate the way. Her other hand clutches an olive branch. Brilliant rays of light emanate from the background, where the U.S. Capitol building is found in the bottom-left corner. Fifty stars fill the outer border, with the legend "LIBERTY" curling along the top rim. The year-date "2017" appears to Miss Liberty's right.
The reverse features an original design created by artist Miley Busiek. A family of bald eagles is shown, the mother nursing her two eaglets in the nest while the father brings back an olive branch. The mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are found to the left and right, respectively. The issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" runs across the top rim. The bottom rim bears the weight and denomination, "1 OZ. FINE GOLD~50 DOLLARS."
In addition to a beautiful symbolic design and a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, the 2017 1 oz American Gold Eagle is also one of the favored trade coins in the world. Its 1 troy ounce of fine gold content is guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government.
