- Product description
Majestic and noble, the Bald Eagle has been the official national bird for the United States of America since Congress first chose its image for the Great Seal of the United States in 1782.
Appearing frequently on flags and emblems used by the government, the Bald Eagle has also been featured on many historic U.S. coins. One of the most notable coins to have an eagle on it was the 1849 Gold Double Eagle. The first gold double eagle ever minted, it was designed by Chief Engraver James B. Longacre – its heraldic eagle on the reverse perfectly symbolized the strength of the young country.
Available exclusively from American Mint, this magnificent coin features James Longacre's "Eagle and Shield" design, along with a detailed reproduction of the 1849 Liberty Head Double Eagle on the obverse. An incredible 4" in diameter and luxuriously layered in 24k gold, it is a fitting tribute to our national bird and its rich history of appearing on classic U.S. coinage. This highly detailed coin is minted to the highest quality "Proof" standard and comes in a protective capsule to preserve it for generations to come.
