From 1986 to 2021, the Gold American Eagles have featured the same primary design elements on the obverse and reverse. The obverse side of the coin revived the 1907 image of Lady Liberty that Augustus Saint-Gaudens created for the Gold $20 Double Eagle. The reverse bore an exclusive design for this series from Miley Busiek. These designs were released on all versions of the coin each year, including the Type 1 2021 coins released through June 2021.
With the debut of the Type 2 2021 coins starting with production in July 2021, the United States Mint embarks on a new future for the series. An all-new vision of the bald eagle comes to the coins as created by Jennie Norris, a graphic designer and member of the US Mint Artistic Infusion Program.
The obverse of 2021 Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins features the aforementioned vision of Lady Liberty. This design shows Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks toward the viewer holding aloft a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. There are rays of sunshine at her back, the U.S. Capitol Building at her feet, and 50 stars around the design element.
On the reverse of 2021 1/4 oz Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins is a new depiction of the American bald eagle. The head of the bald eagle is shown here in left-profile relief with exceptional levels of detail for its physical characteristics.
These 2021 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coins earned a perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins with a Mint State 70 grade showcase full, original mint luster and present with no detractions. The First Strike designation applies to coins received by the PCGS for grading within 30 days of the US Mint’s release.
