The 2021 release of American Eagle Gold Coins marks the 35th anniversary of the coveted gold bullion series. Introduced in 1986, relatively minimal changes have been made to the series since its introduction. The most significant changes have come in the form of different date mark inscriptions in 1992, the staggered release of coins in the Proof version, and the introduction of a Burnished coin in 2006. 2021 brings the biggest change the series has ever seen. Today, you have the opportunity to purchase 2021 American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins in perfect condition online at Provident Metals.
The first significant change of any type to come to the American Eagle Gold Coins came in 1992. From 1986 to 1991, the US Mint had inscribed the date marks on the obverse of the coins using Roman numerals. In 1992, the mint opted to switch from this format to Arabic numerals. In 2021, the US Mint offers the first change in the design with a new reverse element coming by mid-year.
For the obverse field of 2021 American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins, the US Mint features the remastered image of Lady Liberty that was originally created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. President Theodore Roosevelt personally approached Saint-Gaudens about redesigning American coins to move away from Greek and Roman imagery to offer something distinctly representative of Americas growing power. The image of this powerful Liberty shows her independent figure marching forward with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. There are inscriptions on this face of Liberty and 2021.
In the reverse design element, the 2021 American Eagle Gold Coin features a family of American bald eagles. This design was created just for this series in 1986 by Miley Busiek. The image includes a male eagle in flight above the nest, with a female and a hatchling in the nest. The inscriptions on this side of the coin read United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, and 1/2 oz. Fine Gold 25 Dollars.
For the 35th anniversary of the series, the US Mint will deliver new reverse designs. The new images will begin to appear on 2021-dated American Eagle Gold Coins struck after mid-year.
These 2021 American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins are Mint State 70 coins. The PCGS issues this perfect grade to coins that showcase full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. Additionally, the coins have a First Strike label. This means the coins were received for grading within a 30-day window following release from the mint.
