The 2021 release of the Gold Eagles at the United States Mint offered a bridge between the program’s 35-year history and its next 35 years. The original design from Miley Busiek was issued one final time on the coins through June 2021 as part of the 35th anniversary. Starting in July 2021, the new image from Jennie Norris debuted as a continuation of the 35th anniversary. With the celebration now in the rearview mirror, the program moves on in 2022 with Ms. Norris’ design now the focal point of the reverse going forward.
All of these 2022 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles are near-perfect coins in plastic slabs. Mint State 69 coins have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin. First Strike coins are those the PCGS receives for certification within 30 days of release from the mint.
On the obverse side of 2022 Gold American Eagles, you will find the image of Lady Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Created for the Gold $20 Double Eagle, this vision shows Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks toward you holding up a torch to light her way and carrying an olive branch in the other hand. The U.S. Capitol Building is visible at her feet, with sun rays behind her figure and a ring of 50 stars encircling the design field.
The reverse face of 2022 1/4 oz Gold Eagles bears the new image of the American bald eagle. This design was created by Jennie Norris in 2020 and beat out more than 30 other possible designs to become the new reverse image of the Gold American Eagle Series.
