The latest obverse features enhanced elements of the original design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, in a closer rendition of the original vision and detail, according to the Mint.

In addition to the obverse changes, a new reverse is being offered for the first time in more than three decades on the Uncirculated American Eagle gold coin.

The gold coin also bears an anti-counterfeiting notch on the edge.

To complement the new coin design, special packaging was created. The coin is encapsulated and placed in a black presentation case with the United States Mint seal on the lid. The case fits into an outer sleeve incorporating an image of the coin’s reverse design. An accompanying certificate of authenticity includes the artwork of the obverse.
