Please be aware that the black tape on the 2021 Silver Eagle Type 2 tubes is a recent addition from the US Mint. This tape has proven to break easily as a result of minor vibrations or movement. It is possible that the tube you receive may come with black tape that has come loose or has broken. Silver.com is taking the additional step of applying our own tape to each tube to ensure it remains safe during transit.
Since its 1986 introduction, the Gold American Eagle bullion coins from the United States Mint have featured the same obverse and reverse design combinations. Accompanying Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic image of Liberty on the obverse has been Miley Busiek’s vision of a family of bald eagles in its nest on the reverse. With the release of 2021 Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins, a new generation of Gold Eagles takes flight. Today, 2021 1 oz Gold American Eagles Type 2 are available to you online at Silver.com.

The United States Mint has chosen to redesign the reverse field of both the Silver Eagle and Gold Eagle coins to position the series for continued success in the decades to come. Each coin is receiving its own distinctive reverse design, with both designs focusing more on the natural beauty of the bird and less on the bird as a symbol or emblem. The new Gold Eagle reverse ditches the symbol family of bald eagles for a close-up design inspired by the artist’s actual work with massive birds of prey.
All of these 2021 1 oz Gold American Eagles are available to you for purchase individually or in bulk. Individual coins come in protective plastic flips, with multiples available in plastic tubes of 20 or Monster Boxes of 500. The Monster Box of 500 coins holds 25 individual tubes. All of the coins in this listing are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse of 2021 Gold American Eagles is the iconic vision of Liberty created in 1907. This design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens depicts Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks forward holding up a torch in her right hand while carrying an olive branch in her left hand. The background field includes the U.S. Capitol Building and rays of sunshine emerging from the horizon.
The new reverse of the 2021 1 oz Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins features a bald eagle’s head in left-profile relief. With its powerful hooked beak and steely gaze, the bald eagle is as majestic as it is lethal. Jennie Norris’ design of the eagle is inspired by her love of wildlife and wildlife conservation, capturing in great detail the image of the bald eagle found on the new Type 2 2021 Gold Eagles.
