In 2021, the United States Mint celebrated the 35th anniversary of the Gold American Eagles in stunning fashion. For the first time since 1986, the coins received a new design element. The US Mint changed the reverse depiction of the American eagle at the midway point of the 2021 release cycle, resulting in so-called Type 1 and Type 2 coins in the 2021 Gold Eagle Series.

The 1986 debut of the Gold Eagle at the United States Mint featured a reverse design element from Miley Busiek. This depiction of a family of bald eagles was exclusive to the Gold Eagle Series and featured on the reverse side of all weights and versions of the coin from 1986 to June 2021. The 2021 release was split between those coins with the original design and those coins with the new reverse design element.
In July 2021, the US Mint resumed coining 2021 Gold Eagles after a brief pause. When it did, the 2021 Type 2 Gold Eagle was released featuring the first design change in program history. The all-new reverse design was created by Jennie Norris, a member of the US Mint Artistic Infusion Program.
The obverse of 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Type 2s comes with the historic Liberty design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Created in 1907, it shows Liberty in front-facing relief as she strides toward you with the U.S. Capitol Building and sun rays in the background as her hands hold a torch and the olive branch of peace.
On the reverse of 2021-W Proof Gold Eagle Type 2s, you will find the all-new bald eagle design from Jennie Norris. The new design focuses on the striking physical features of the powerful bald eagle, with the bird’s head set in left-profile relief.
