The Type 1 coins issued in the American Gold Eagle Series in 2021 marked the final use of Miley Busiek’s original design for the series. Created in 1986, this design featured on BU, Proof, and Burnished coins in the series each year. As the 35th anniversary of the series rolled around in 2021, the US Mint began to take steps away from the original design.
To begin the 2021 release schedule, the US Mint issued Gold Eagles in the Type 1 style. These were coins with the original Miley Busiek design. The Type 1 coins were only issued in the BU ad Proof versions, with no Burnished coin available in the Type 1 release.
Liberty is on the obverse of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle Type 1 Coins. Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this full-length figure of Liberty in front-facing relief captures her figure walking toward you with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left.
A family of American bald eagles can be found in the reverse design of the 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagle Type 1 Coin. This design from Miley Busiek was created just for the Gold Eagle Series and shows a male eagle flying over the nest where a female eagle and its hatchlings are resting.
These 2021-W 1 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Type 1 Coins are available to you in near-perfect condition. PR69 coins showcase full, original mint luster and have no more than two minor detractions. Examples of these flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines and must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin. DCAM stands for deep-cameo and refers to the presence of strong, frosted designs with deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
