The American Gold Eagle enjoyed a unique release schedule 35 years ago when the series launched in 1986. The BU Series of coins were all introduced in 1986 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights. The Proof Series was introduced in 1986 with 1 oz gold only, and expanded in 1987 with 1/2 oz and 1988 with 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins. In 2006, the Burnished Series was introduced as well and is available today with just a 1 oz gold coin.
In 2021, the release of the Type 2 versions of the coins midyear brings a new reverse design element to all coins in the series. The new bald eagle design on the reverse was created by Jennie Norris and was submitted alongside more than 30 other designs as options for the new reverse. Ms. Norris design is now set to grace the coins for decades to come.
Obverse designs of the 2021 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Coin include the image of Lady Liberty. Captured in a full-length figure, Liberty is shown in front-facing relief with her right hand holding up a torch and her left hand carrying an olive branch. The background field includes the U.S. Capitol Building, sun rays, and a ring of 50 stars.
Reverse visuals on the 2021 1/10 oz Gold Eagle Type 2 Coin now feature the head of an American bald eagle. This natural depiction of the eagle shows the birds head in left-profile relief with a hooked beak, sharp gaze, and detailed feathers in its plumage.
These 2021 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins are near-perfect specimens. Coins in Mint State 69 condition showcase full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detractions. Flaws at this grade level are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
