The US Mint was established, following formal authorisation by the U.S. Congress on 2 April 1792. The US Mint has four minting locations Denver, Philadelphia, San Franciso and West Point. All US Eagle and Buffalo coins are minted in West Point.
The design comes from Adolph A. Weinman who created the “Walking Liberty” design 1916 which was used for the ½ Dollar coins.

Her long hair blows in the wind. She carries a torch (right hand) and an olive branch (left hand). Her left foot stands on a rock. Near her right foot is a representation of the Capitol building (where the U.S. Congress is based) in Washington. The lady Liberty design is based on that drawn by August Saint-Gauden for the $20 Double Eagle gold coin, issued over the period, 1907 – 1932. The design was modified for the American Eagle gold bullion coin by Matthew Peloso.
Reverse shows a family of eagles. The male, carrying an olive branch in its beak, flies above a nest containing a female eagle and two hatchlings. The eagle is a national emblem of the U.S. The design is by Miley Busiek. It was engraved by Sherl Winter.
