The $10 Liberty Gold Eagle Coin was designed by artist, Christian Gobrecht. The obverse of the coin features his neoclassical rendition of the traditional Lady Liberty portrait. In this Greco-Roman inspired image, Lady Liberty appears in profile with her thick curls elegantly arranged beneath an inscribed crown. Framing her beautiful portrait is a border of thirteen stars to symbolize the original thirteen colonies. They are accompanied by the coin’s mintage year, which is engraved directly beneath the portrait.
Proudly embossed unto the reverse side of the coin is Gobrecht interpretation of the Heraldic Eagle, which features the national bird, armed with a shield, an olive branch and a set of arrows. The coin’s denomination and year of mintage have been engraved along the outer edge of the coin for reference.
