Powerful Eagle Design by Jennie Norris
Obverse: As is tradition, the Saint-Gaudens design graces the obverse, albeit with some updates as the U.S. Mint returned to their original historic assets, restoring legacy details including modifications to the Capitol Building, stars, torch and ray's of the sun, resulting in a rendition that is a closer reflection to Saint-Gauden's original vision. Named for the man who designed it, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the image features Liberty holding her torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other as she stands facing the holder. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the date, "2021," is included in the lower right.
Reverse: The reverse features a highly detailed eagle design by Jennie Norris. The image may be the closest look at the bird ever struck on an American coin. The two statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed above the bird's head. Rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "25 DOLLARS," and its metal content, "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD."
