To begin the 2021 release schedule, the United States Mint issued the Gold American Eagles with the original design combinations. Through the first half of the year, BU and Proof versions of the coin were issued with the original images of Lady Liberty on the obverse and the family of bald eagles from Miley Busiek on the reverse.
The Burnished version of the coin was not issued in early 2021 with the original designs, making the 2020 date mark the final one in that version of the coin with the Miley Busiek design. With the release of the Type 2 design at the midpoint of the 2021 release schedule, the US Mint has unveiled its new image of the bald eagle on the BU and Proof coins, with Burnished specimens to come later in the year.
Obverse design elements of the 2021 1/4 oz Gold Eagle feature Lady Liberty. This design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 and features Liberty in front-facing relief. The U.S. Capitol Building is visible in the background with rays of sunshine at the back of Liberty and a ring of 50 stars around her figure.
Reverse visuals on the 2021 Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coin include the all-new bald eagle effigy. This depiction of the American bald eagle depicts the bird in left-profile relief with its hooked beak and beautiful plumage.
These 2021 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins are available to you for purchase in near-perfect condition. Mint State 69 coins showcase full, original mint luster and have a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of these flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines found outside of the primary focal points of the coin. First Strike coins are those received within 30 days of release to be graded.
