Family. Country. Security. These were values Reagan valued, and they’re values writ large on the gold American Eagle coin. Miley Busiek, the sculptor who designed the reverse, was inspired by the speech Reagan gave in 1980 when he accepted the Republican nomination for president. She later said: “[Reagan] was encouraging Americans to be thankful for what we have in this country and to act upon that feeling. He was encouraging private-sector initiatives – a willingness to reach out and care about each other and pull together. I liked the idea of thinking of America as a caring family, so I put together a sketch showing not just one eagle, but a whole family.” Busiek drew a design of a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female eagle and their babies wait. The Republican party asked her to create a small sculpture out of the sketch, and the sculpture was replicated and copies were given to the Iran hostages when they returned to America after 444 days of captivity. The design was later used on the gold American Eagle. So when you buy an American Eagle coin, you’re getting a coin that has multiple layers in how it represents our values. Hostages returning home. An eagle returning home to his family. This meaningful and beautiful design has made the gold American Eagle one of the most popular coins in the world, making it highly liquid and easy to sell.
