2021 American Gold Eagle

The American Gold Eagle is the official bullion coin of the United States. Inspired by Augustus Saint-Gaudens's $20 gold piece, the first coins were struck in 1986.


Obverse: On the obverse of 2021 American Gold Eagle Coins is Lady Liberty. This design from 1907 shows Liberty walking away from Washington DC, the US Capitol Building visible at her feet, holding a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Rays of sunshine are visible behind her frame and a ring of 50 stars surrounds the design field.

Reverse: For the final time, the reverse of 2021 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Coins bears the design of a family of American bald eagles from Miley Busiek. This design has been on the reverse since 1986 and has never featured on another American coin series. In the design field, a female eagle and young hatchling rest in the family nest as a male eagle flies overhead with a branch in its talons.

The 2021 date mark is not only the 35th anniversary of the series, but it is also the first time the coins will receive a design overhaul of any consequence. The reverse design of the bald eagle is set to change by mid-2021, leaving early issues in the year with the original design combinations and giving buyers one last shot at these historic images.

I was recently trying to explain the difference between a golden eagle and a silver eagle. I took a coin flip and put one of each in the flip and handed to a friend of ours. She couldn't believe how expensive a gold eagle is....
I was trying to recruit another stacker @silversaver888 Lol!😍😍😀
