The 2016 1 Oz. Gold American Eagle features many of the most revered American symbols, making it an ideal choice for patriotically-minded investors. The obverse has the iconic Saint-Guadens Double Eagle design that includes Lady Liberty and her torch, an olive branch and the U.S. Capitol. The 2016 Gold American Eagle also has added stars. Turning the coin to its reverse reveals more patriotic symbols, with the olive branch and the Bald Eagle.
Lady Liberty and Her Torch
Lady Liberty is one of our country’s most beloved symbols of freedom. Her torch symbolizes enlightenment. As she holds her torch on high, she lights the path to freedom.
The olive branch is a well-known symbol of peace or of pleading for peace. Although America has fought many wars, the ultimate goal has been a long and lasting peace. No one knows why the olive branch came to symbolize peace, but it might have something to do with the way the olive tree grows. It takes so long to develop to maturity that farmers in the Mediterranean could only grow them in times of peace, when there was time to tend them and the tranquility to allow them to grow unhindered.
U.S. Capitol Building
The U.S. Capitol building can be seen distinctly in the background of the obverse, representing the American government.
This 1 Oz. 2016 Gold American Eagle features stars that were added to the original Saint-Gaudens design. Our flag, often called the ‘Stars and Stripes’ features a star for each state. Stars typically represent purity and divine vision to seek our highest goals.
The Bald Eagle on the reverse of the coin is a clear representation of America’s strength and freedom. As the Bald Eagle flies toward the mother eagle and the nest clutching an olive branch, it is the same as America bringing peace and comfort for its individual people.
