The Proof Gold American Eagles are issued annually in four weights. The 2021 release is special in several ways. First and foremost, this date mark is the 35th anniversary for the American Eagle Series. Second, the series is changing reverse designs for the first time ever as a new bald eagle image comes to the reverse by mid-2021. Most significantly, perhaps, is the fact that the US Mint plans to release two versions of the Proof Gold Eagles this year, with the original eagle design from Miley Busiek on early 2021-dated coins, like this set, before introducing new 2021-dated coins with the updated reverse later in the year. Today, 2021-W Four-Coin Proof gold American Eagle Sets are available to you online at Silver.com in perfect condition.

The United States Mint plans on not only releasing a new design on the reverse of its Gold Eagle and Silver Eagle coins in 2021, but also plans to release two versions of its popular coins. The first several months of 2021 will feature the original reverse designs on both coins until roughly mid-summer. At this point, the US Mint will pause production of 2021 coins to swap out the dies for the new reverse design, and then resume coining 2021-dated coins in both collections with the new reverse designs on the coins.
All of the 2021-W Four-Coin Proof Gold American Eagle Sets available here come with perfect certifications from the NGC. Coins in PF70 condition have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. These proof coins also have the special UCAM label. This refers to the ultra-cameo-proof visuals of the coin that include strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The Early Release designation means the NGC received the coin sets from the US Mint within 30 days of the initial release date.
On the obverse side of the 2021-W Proof Gold Eagles is the historic Lady Liberty design. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, it depicts Liberty walking away from Washington D.C. with the US Capitol Building visible behind her and rays of sunshine framing her figure. She strides forward confidently lifting a torch overhead in her right hand and carrying an olive branch in her left.
The reverse field of 2021-W Proof Gold American Eagles in this Four-Coin Set comes with Miley Busiek’s bald eagle design. In use for the final time, it depicts a female eagle in the nest with a hatchling as a male eagle flies overhead.
