The Proof Gold Eagle and other coins of the gold and silver collection within the American Eagle Series come with new design elements on the reverse in 2021. However, before the US Mint transitioned its production to the new reverse images of the bald eagle, it issued 2021-dated coins with the original design combinations to ensure it was able to meet the continued demand for the coins in 2020 and 2021. Now, 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com in near-perfect condition.

The United States Mint refreshed the reverse visuals of the American Eagle coins in its gold and silver collections. The changes apply to the BU, Proof, and Burnished versions of the coins in 2021. However, the BU and Proof specimens started the 2021 production cycle with the original design combinations.
Given this is the final release of the 2021 Proof Gold Eagle with the original Miley Busiek design on the obverse, the mint capped the number of coins it would produce. A total of 12,700 coins were issued, with the mint limiting the number of those coins available in presentation packaging to 4,500 coins within that overall mintage limit.
On the obverse of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles is the effigy of Lady Liberty. This front-facing image of Liberty graced the obverse of the Gold $20 Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, it sends a powerful message about America’s emergence in the 20th century as she walks toward the viewer holding up a torch to light the way and carrying an olive branch of peace in her left hand.
The reverse side of the 2021-W Proof Gold Eagles comes with the original design from 1986. Created by Miley Busiek, it depicts a male eagle soaring over the nest as a female eagle and a hatchling sit perched inside.
These 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are near-perfect specimens. Coins in PF69 condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detractions. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines. These flaws must be located outside the primary focal points. UCAM designations are for proof coins with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
