The United States Mint has produced American Gold Eagles since 1986. This beautiful gold bullion series has offered the same obverse and reverse designs for 35 years. However, in mid-2021, the original reverse design was overhauled in favor of a new image of the American bald eagle. In this special listing, you can own one of the last 2021 American Gold Eagles struck with the original reverse design.

Introduced in 1986, the American Gold Eagle Coin has long featured a historic image of Lady Liberty on the obverse with a unique design on the reverse. That reverse design was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek for the exclusive use of the Gold Eagle Series. The coins in the BU, Proof, and Burnished options have long featured these designs.
In 2021, the Gold Eagle gained a new reverse design with the release of Type 2 coins. However, the 2021 production cycle started with the release of the original design combinations. From January to June, the coins featured the original designs before a pause in production. Those final coins with the Type 1 design in 2021 are now available to you from JM Bullion.
Lady Liberty is visible on the obverse side of 2021 1 oz American Gold Eagle Type 1 Coins. This historic design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin. It depicts Liberty in front-facing relief with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left.
An American bald eagle family is featured in the reverse field of 2021 American Gold Eagle Type 1 Coins. This design was created by Miley Busiek to include a male eagle soaring over the nest as a female eagle shelters in the nest with a young hatchling.
These 2021 1 oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available in perfect condition according to the PCGS. Mint State 70 coins showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws. Equally significant is the Last Day of Production label. As the US Mint approached the pause in its production to switch to Type 2 coins, these 2021 Type 1 Eagles were struck on the last day before the changeover.
