The American Eagle One Ounce Gold Uncirculated Coin is the collector version of the American Eagle One Ounce Gold Bullion Coin.  The 22-karat gold coin is struck on specially burnished blanks and has a finish similar to its bullion counterpart.  However, unlike its bullion counterpart, the American Eagle One Ounce Gold Uncirculated Coin bears the “W” mint mark of the United States Mint at West Point.  Each coin is encapsulated in plastic and mounted in a presentation case.  A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

The coin’s obverse (heads side) bears the full-length figure of Liberty by renowned sculptor Augustus Saint Gaudens.  The coin’s reverse (tails side) features sculptor Miley Busiek’s design of a male eagle carrying an olive branch, flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her eaglets.

The United States Mint was created by Congress in 1792 and became part of the Department of the Treasury in 1873.  It is the Nation’s sole manufacturer of legal tender coinage and is responsible for producing circulating coinage for the Nation to conduct its trade and commerce.  The United States Mint also produces numismatic products, including proof, uncirculated, and commemorative coins; Congressional Gold Medals; and silver and gold bullion coins.  The United States Mint’s numismatic programs are self-sustaining and operate at no cost to the taxpayer.

Since Congress created the United States Mint on April 2, 1792, the primary mission of the Mint is to produce an adequate volume of circulating coinage for the nation. As a self-funded agency, the United States Mint turns revenues beyond its operating expenses over to the General Fund of the Treasury. Other responsibilities include: Maintaining physical custody and protection of the Nation's $100 billion of U.S. gold and silver assets; Manufacturing and selling platinum, gold, and silver bullion coins; and Overseeing production facilities in Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point, as well as the U.S. Bullion Depository at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
