The 2021 release of Gold Eagles at the United States Mint started in January with coins bearing the original reverse design. Miley Busiek had created the design of a family of bald eagles near their nest in 1986. That design was exclusive to the Gold Eagle Series and was used on coins dated 1986 to early 2021.
With the release of what is currently known as the Type 2 Gold Eagle, 2021-dated Gold Eagles now move forward into a new era with a refreshed reverse design from Jennie Norris. Ms. Norris is a member of the United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program and her design beat out more than 30 other choices to become the new face of the Gold Eagle Series.
The obverse side of 2021 Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins comes with the historic image of Liberty. Designed in 1907, this image of Liberty is a front-facing relief in which she walks toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. The design element includes the U.S. Capitol Building, rays of sunshine, and a ring of 50 stars around the design element.
On the reverse field of 2021 1/10 oz Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins is a depiction of the American bald eagle. The eagle is shown in left-profile relief and its major characteristics, such as its powerful hooked beak and detailed feathers, are all found in the design of the bird.
These 2021 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins come with a perfect certification from the PCGS. A Mint State 70 coin showcases full, original mint luster and presents with no detracting flaws of any kind. First Strike coins are those received by the PCGS within 30 days of release from the US Mint to be graded.
