Why purchase this Type 2 2021 American 1/10 oz Gold Eagle?
The American Gold Eagle undergoes its biggest change so far with this first of its kind Type 2 edition. The Type 2 version has a new reverse design that replaces the Family of Eagles design that has appeared on the Gold Eagle reverse since the series debuted in 1986. This change did not take place until mid-2021 with early 2021 issues still being released with the original Family of Eagles reverse design, meaning that collectors have the opportunity to own two types of this coin from the same year.
Stunning Eagle Design by Jennie Norris
Obverse: Gracing the obverse is the iconic Saint-Gaudens design, which is named for the man who designed it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Liberty strikes a confident pose as she faces the holder with her torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed above, while the date, "2021," is included in the lower right. The iconic depiction of Liberty was created by numismatic designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the 1907 Gold Double Eagle. For the type-2 design, the United States Mint added some legacy details inspired by the original bronze cast, enhancing elements such as the Capitol Building, stars, torch and sun rays.
Reverse: The reverse features a new design by Jennie Norris. The design is a highly detailed left-side portrait of an eagle. Just above the bird's head are the two statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Rim inscriptions read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "5 DOLLARS," and "1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD."

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this piece the highest available grade, Mint State 70. That means that the coin appears flawless under 5x magnification. NGC also certified the coin First Day of Issue (FDI). This information comes provided on an FDI-themed certification label.
