Proof Gold Eagles from the United States Mint are the finest collectible gold coins the mint issues each year. Like other coins in the gold series in 2021, Proof Gold American Eagles were issued in two versions. The coins struck and released in the first half of the year featured the original design combinations, known in 2021 as Type 1s, while those coins issued after July 2021 bore the new reverse design element, known in 2021 as Type 2s.
