The best-selling option in the American Gold Eagle BU coin series is the 1 oz gold coin. Available each year since 1986, the series offers four weights. The 1 oz gold coin has had the highest mintage in most of the release years since 1986, with only the 1/10 oz gold coin ever surpassing it, and that occurred only on 13 occasions in the past 33 years.

The 1 oz American Gold Eagle does not hold the record in the series for the highest mintage. That honor belongs to the 1999 1/10 oz Gold Eagle and its mintage of more than 2.75 million coins. However, the 1 oz Gold Eagle does hold the next four highest mintages in the series, marks it set in 1999, 2009, 1998, and 1986, in descending order. Also, as mentioned above, the 1 oz American Gold Eagle has been the highest minted coin in a given year in 20 of the 33 release years dating 1986-2019.

On the obverse side of 2021 American Gold Eagle Coins is a depiction of Lady Liberty from 1907. Created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the vision of Liberty shown here captures her full figure walking toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. You will also see the US Capitol Building in the distance with a ring of 50 stars around the design element.
The reverse face of the 2021 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins bears an image of a family of American bald eagles. Miley Busiek designed this image of a male eagle flying over the family nest. This is the last date mark during which you will find this design available on the American Gold Eagle.
