Ever since its debut in 1986, the annual release of the United States Mint's American Gold Eagle series has been highly anticipated by collectors and 2021 is no exception. This 2021 1/10 ounce American Gold Eagle will feature the series' original reverse, marking one of the the last times bullion American Gold Eagles will feature Miley Busiek's iconic reverse design. The United States Mint is planning on releasing 2021 bullion American Gold Eagles featuring a brand new reverse design later in 2021.
Iconic Obverse and Reverse Designs
Reverse: Created by Miley Busiek, a private-sector sculptor, the reverse features what is known as the Family of Eagles design, which shows a male Eagle in flight, returning to his nest mate and hatchings, with an olive branch between its beaks. Inscriptions on this face include the denomination, " 5 dollars," the weight and purity, "1/10 oz. FINE GOLD," the issuing nation, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the phrases, " E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Obverse: The obverse features an iconic image of Lady Liberty confidently walking forward with a torch in one hand, an olive branch in the other, while she is framed by the sun's ray's from behind. This design was refreshed and taken from the 1907 $20 Double Eagle created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, a prolific coin designer. Inscriptions on this face include the word "LIBERTY" and the date, "2021."
