Powerful Eagle Design by Jennie Norris

Obverse: The iconic Saint-Gaudens design, which is named for its creator, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, features on the obverse. Liberty stands against a backdrop of the rays of the morning sun as she holds her torch, a symbol of freedom, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed at the top of this face, and the date, "2021," is noted in the lower right. The Type-2 release notably features some modifications to design elements like the Capitol Building, sun's rays and more, as the Mint returned to their original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Saint-Gaudens' original design and detail.

Reverse: The reverse features a left-side profile of a bald eagle. The closeup image shows the details of the bird's face. "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed just above its head, while rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "50 DOLLARS," and its metal content, "1 OZ. FINE GOLD."
