Why add this flawless Type-2 2021 Gold Eagle 1/10 oz. bullion coin to your collection of American coinage treasures?
The American Gold Eagle series was launched by the U.S. Mint in 1986. In the thirty-five years since the series' introduction, obverse and reverse imagery has been consistent. That changes in 2021, with the release of the exciting Type-2 design. While the obverse rendition of Lady Liberty remains, the classic Type-1 Family of Eagles reverse has been replaced with a stunning new portrait-style interpretation of the national bird.
Breathtaking Patriotic Type-2 Design
Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse, confidently marching forward grasping an olive branch of peace in her left hand and torch of enlightenment in her right, with the U.S. Capitol Building and the rays of the sun in the background. The image is surrounded by fifty stars, with a cluster of oak leaves in the foreground to symbolize strength and wisdom. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2021" and the monogram "AGW" crediting renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens with the timeless design, which first appeared on the Gold Double Eagle coin in 1907. The Type-2 design includes restored legacy details adapted from the original bronze cast, slightly modifying the appearance of elements such as the Capitol Building, stars, torch and sun rays.
Reverse: The Type-2 reverse design features a close-up view of an eagle, with its gaze intently focused to the left. The image is accompanied by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "5 DOLLARS" and "1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD." The eagle portrait is the first design for the U.S. Mint by Artistic Infusion Program Artist Jennie Norris, an Arizona based professional graphic designer and member of the United States Mint's Artistic Infusion Program (AIP).
