The United States Mint launched the coining of 2021-dated coins in late 2020. From this point until late spring in 2021, the US Mint used the original design combinations on the Gold Eagle to continue to satisfy the demand for the coins as it simultaneously prepared new dies for its coining presses.
During this period, only 2021-dated BU and Proof coins were issued. The US Mint did not issue a 2021 Burnished coin with the original designs. Now that new dies are ready for the coining presses, the US Mint is in full-scale production of BU, Proof, and Burnished 2021 Gold Eagles with the new reverse design element.
The obverse side of 2021 1/4 oz Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins comes with a front-facing effigy of Lady Liberty. This depiction of her full-length figure was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and originally used on the Gold $20 Double Eagle Coin until 1933.
On the reverse of 2021 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins is the brand-new depiction of the American bald eagle. This design comes from Jennie Norris and replaces the original image of a family of bald eagles that was created for the series in 1986 by Miley Busiek. Ms. Norris’ design was chosen from a group of more than 30 possible designs to represent the future of the Gold Eagle Series.
These 2021 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins are available in perfect condition. Coins with the MS70 grade showcase full, original mint luster with no detractions present on the design or background field of the coins. Each one of the coins also has an Early Release designation, indicating that each was received for grading within 30 days of release by the US Mint.
