The premier of the Type 2 American Eagle marks a momentous event in the history of gold and silver bullion coins. Until late 2021, the only available American Eagle Gold Coin was the Type 1.
No major redesign has ever happened with this coin, which has long been among the most popular gold coins that the historic U.S. Mint has to offer. Its original design on the reverse depicted a bald eagle flying through the air toward its nest.
The revamped design was created by designer Renata Gordon and depicts a single bald eagle staring off into the distance.
Hero Bullion is proud to offer you the latest 2021 1 Oz American Eagle Type 2.
The first release with this new design, this coin is an excellent choice for collectors who want to commemorate this historic art change in the U.S. Mint’s most compelling bullion piece.
This coin comes shipped in certified Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. Struck using .9167 pure gold bullion, the intricate details of both the obverse and reverse designs really seem to shine.

The 2021 1 Oz American Eagle Type 2 Gold Coin comes to you courtesy of the United States Mint. The coin has a face value of $50 USD, which is backed by the sovereign government of the United States of America.
Of course, we know that no sane collector would ever let their collectable 1 oz pure gold coin go for the price of $50.
The backing of a sovereign government serves another purpose, which is demonstrated well by the coin’s increased security measures.
A unique reeded edge on this coin helps to deter counterfeits, which further guarantees the collectable value and certified legitimacy of your gold coin.
The obverse design on this classic coin remains the same, even with the Type 2 revisions.
It depicts “Walking Liberty,” a revered symbol of American freedom and independence.
Lady Liberty walks forward, holding a torch in one of her hands and an olive branch in the other. The United States capitol building is visible in the foreground of the piece as a sun appears to rise.
The unique reverse design is the main change from the Type 1 to the Type 2 American Gold Eagle Coin.
The older version of this piece depicted a flying eagle on the reverse. This version instead opts for a close-up shot of a Bald Eagle’s head as it stares pensively into the distance.
Fans of U.S. Mint coins should already appreciate how important this design change really is. For collectors all over the world, this piece represents an opportunity to get their hands on the very first release of a historic new series from the United States Mint.
Even those who don’t closely follow the series can appreciate the intricate design and classic American iconography that makes this coin so grand.
