The obverse of the 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle boasts Liberty’s depiction by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, symbolizing progress with her torch guiding the waya design that graced the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin until 1933. Inscriptions read LIBERTY, and 1996.


On the reverse of the 1996 American Gold Eagle Coin, Miley Busiek’s artwork portrays a family of bald eagles in their nest, with a male eagle flying over while the female guards the hatchlings. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1 OZ. FINE GOLD, and 50 DOLLARS.


The 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle coin marked a significant turning point in the series produced by the US Mint. Initially, the 1 oz coin held the highest demand among the available weights. However, a decade later, a different coin emerged as the favored choice. Surprisingly, while the 1 oz coin witnessed reduced demand, the 1/10 oz coin nearly doubled in demand during 1996, consistently matching or surpassing the 1 oz coin’s popularity.
