American Gold Eagle bullion coins have the highest mintage figures in the series from the US Mint. The 1 oz gold coin often has the highest mintage in any given year, competing with the 1/10 oz coin for the attention of investors. In fact, these two weights hold all of the top mintages in the series.
While the 1/10 oz coin holds the highest mintage in the series at 2.75 million in 1999, the 1 oz coin holds the next four highest mintages. The 1999 coin hit 1.505 million, the 2009 coin had 1.493 million, the 1998 coin sold 1.468 million, and the 1986 coin sold 1.36 million units. These remain the top-five sales figures in the history of the American Gold Eagle series.
The obverse face of 2020 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins bears the image of Lady Liberty. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this image originally appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. The symbol depicts Liberty in front-facing relief as she marches out of Washington D.C. with a guiding light in the form of her torch in one hand and an olive branch in her left hand.
On the reverse of 2020 American Gold Eagle Coins, you will find a family of American bald eagles. As the male flies over the nest, the female eagle keeps a watchful eye on the young hatchling and offers her wing for protection.
These 2020 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins earned Mint State 70 certifications from the NGC.
