About the 1991 $25 Gold American Eagle
The $25 Gold American Eagle is a beautiful piece of bullion any investor can be proud to own. A shining piece made out of ½ Troy oz. of 22 karat gold, this piece is also a little bit of American history in action.
It's the first official gold offered to the American public since the Great Depression. It's the first American coin to feature the work of a female designer, Miley Busiek. She designed the reverse, featuring a male eagle returning to a female eagle in the nest. The obverse comes to us from Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and is a reboot of the Double Eagle design which made its debut in 1907. Finally, the 1991 release date means this coin comes from one of only six years of coins in which the U.S. Mint released coins using Roman numerals for dates.
