If you buy gold from the United States Mint, the Gold Eagle Series is likely a very familiar collection of BU, Proof, and Burnished coins. For those who regularly buy the gold coins in this series, 2021 is a year that you wont want to miss. 2021 is the first year ever in the collection to feature two different design combinations on the coins. The year starts with the original combination in use since 1986 and is the last time you can get these two iconic images together. Right now, 2021 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion in perfect condition.

Each 2021 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle offered through this JM Bullion listing has a Mint State 70 certification from the PCGS. Considered perfect specimens, these coins exhibit full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws on the surface areas or design elements. The included First Strike label indicates the arrival of the coins for certification. To qualify, the coins must be received within the first 30 days following the US Mints release of the coins.
As part of the 35th-anniversary celebration for the American Eagle Series, both the Silver Eagle and Gold Eagle coins will receive new reverse design elements. The US Mint has decided to release the new designs by mid-2021, resulting in a 2021 release in each bullion series that features the original design combinations and one that features the new design combinations. The obverse remains the same in both series, but the reverse will deliver new depictions of the bald eagle.
Lady Liberty remains on the obverse of 2021 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins. This design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 for the Double Eagle Gold Coin. It features Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks toward the viewer holding a torch aloft in her right hand while carrying an olive branch in the other hand.
American bald eagles are shown in a family unit on the reverse side of the 2021 American Gold Eagle. The coins show a male eagle flying over the family nest as a female eagle extends her wing to offer shelter to a young hatchling. This design was created exclusively for the Gold Eagle Series in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
