The Gold American Eagle PF 70 coin enjoys on of the most iconic images to ever grace a coin. Augustus Saint-Gaudens interpretation of Lady Liberty is a classic design that transcends numismatics. Saint-Gaudens gained notoriety from his sculptures of American Civil War heroes. These sculptures caught the eye of President Roosevelt who selected him to redesign American coinage to closely resemble that of the Romans. First minted in 1907, Saint-Gardens design on a gold coin quickly gained in popularity.
Today the Gold American Eagle PF 70 coins pay homage to Saint-Gaudens and feature an interpretation of his Lady Liberty design with her holding right hand holding a torch, her left grasping an olive branch as she is striding forward with confidence.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and IN GOD WE TRUST are prominently displayed above the male bald eagle and above the wing of the female bald eagle respectively. The reverse is the design of sculptor Miley Busiek and is a perfect compliment to the design of Saint-Gaudens.
