The 2021 release of Gold American Eagles started with the final issue of the coins bearing the Miley Busiek depiction of a family of bald eagles. This final release of the original design came as part of the 35th-anniversary celebration for the series. By midyear, the new design from Jennie Norris debuted on the coins in the series. This image is now the official reverse design for the series and the only visual available on the coins.
All of these 2022 1 oz Gold American Eagles are available to purchase in near-perfect condition. Mint State 69 coins are those that have full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detractions. To qualify for this grade, the flaws must not exceed minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside the primary focal points of the coin. Early Release designations are for coins that are received for grading within 30 days of release from the mint.
Obverse designs on the 2022 Gold American Eagle feature the image of Liberty. Taken from the 1907 Gold Double Eagle Coin, this design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It shows Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks forward holding a torch aloft in one hand and clutching an olive branch in the other hand.
Reverse visuals on the 2022 1 oz Gold American Eagles include the all-new bald eagle effigy from Jennie Norris. Chosen from a field of more than 30 possible designs, this left-profile image shows the head of the bald eagle with stunning levels of detail in its plumage and other physical features.
