2021 marks a monumental release in the Gold Eagle and Silver Eagle collections. The two leading coins in the broader American Eagle bullion program mark 35 years in production in 2021, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. For the first time ever, the US Mint is redesigning the coins with new reverse images coming to each coin. It will also mark a first-ever dual issue of the coins as the US Mint releases the original designs in early 2021 and shifts gears to the new reverse designs in mid-2021. Today, 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles in perfect condition are available to you online at Silver.com.

By mid-2021, the United States Mint will halt production of these 2021 Proof Gold Eagles to switch over production to its new reverse design. From late 2020 when the mint began striking 2021-dated coins until early summer, the original designs of Lady Liberty on the obverse and the family of bald eagles on the reverse were featured on 2021 coins. These specimens are now known as Type 1 coins for the 2021 date mark. When the new reverse design arrives later in the year, it will be known as the Type 2 coin to help differentiate between the design combinations on 2021-dated coins.
All 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles in this Silver.com listing come with a PF70 certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered perfect specimens with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The included UCAM designation stands for ultra-cameo. This refers to the presence of strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse of 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles is Lady Liberty. This design was created in 1907 and originally featured on the famed Gold $20 Double Eagle coin from the US Mint. It was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens at the request of President Theodore Roosevelt.
The reverse side of 2021-W Proof Gold American Eagles features the image of a family of bald eagles in the nest. This image was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek and has been exclusive to the Gold Eagle Series since that time. These are the final Proof Gold Eagles to feature this image.
