Why add this exceptionally graded 1 oz. 2021 American Gold Eagle Type-2 bullion coin to your collection of precious metals?
Release of this 2021 American Gold Eagle coin signifies the transition of the series from the long-running Type-1 design to the much anticipated introduction of the Type-2 imagery. The historic allegorical figure of Liberty that has adorned the obverse of the coin remains firmly in place for the series. The exciting change occurs on the reverse, where the iconic family of eagles has been replaced with a singular eagle in a close-up portrait.
Gorgeous Type-2 Design Celebrating Liberty and Freedom
Obverse: Liberty is personified on the obverse as a young woman strolling forward at daybreak, gripping an olive branch symbolizing peace and a torch representing freedom. The image is accompanied by fifty stars, along with the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "2021" and the artist's "ASG" monogram. This symbolic design is the result of a collaboration between sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens and President Theodore Roosevelt in the early 20th century. The time-honored rendition of Liberty first appeared on the Gold Double Eagle coin in 1907. The Type-2 design features legacy details restored to the Capitol Building, stars, torch and sun rays, modeled after the original bronze cast.
Reverse: The exquisitely detailed head of an eagle facing left dominates the reverse, with the inscriptions "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" above. The image is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "50 DOLLARS" and "1 OZ. FINE GOLD," separated by stars. This Type-2 Eagle Portrait is the first coin design of professional graphic designer, illustrator and award-winning fine artist Jennie Norris. Ms. Norris is currently a graphic designer at the University of Arizona who recently joined the U.S. Mint's Artistic Infusion Program.
