In 2019, the United States Mint announced it would reveal a new reverse design element for the American Gold Eagles and American Silver Eagles. The designs were created in 2020 and evaluated by the Treasury and a citizen’s committee to determine which designs would feature on the coins going forward.
The design chosen for the reverse of the American Gold Eagle came from Jennie Norris. It debuted midway through 2021 during the 35th-anniversary celebration of the series. The US Mint split its 2021 coinage between Type 1 coins with the original design and Type 2 coins with the new design, giving each image a place in the 35th-anniversary release.
Liberty is depicted on the obverse of 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins. Created in 1907, this effigy shows Liberty in front-facing relief with her full-length figure framed by sun rays on the horizon. She holds up a torch in her right hand and carries an olive branch in her left as she strides forward.
A new American bald eagle depiction graces the reverse of 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins. Designed by Jennie Norris, this detailed effigy captures an eagle head in left-profile relief.
These 2021-W 1/10 Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins are available to you for purchase in perfect condition. PF70 coins showcase full, original mint luster with no detractions. UCAM stands for ultra-cameo and refers to the strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields. The coins have a First Release label as well, indicating each one was received for grading within 30 days of release from the mint.
