The American Gold Eagle Coin is celebrating its 35th year of circulation this year. Designed and distributed by the United States Mint annually, the American Gold Eagle Coin is one of the most recognized and anticipated yearly releases in the entire bullion industry.
The classic designs featured on the coin depict both the heraldic eagle of the United States and Lady Liberty herself. Put together, the two icons represent the most ‘American’ imagery the Mint has to offer.
Collectors are already becoming excited for the release of this newest addition to the long line of Gold Eagle coins by the US Mint. Although the US Mint had previously stated that the 2021 coins will include a new design, this edition actually features the same classic design.
While this might disappoint some, other collectors might be interested in yet another reproduction of the long-appreciated gold eagle design.
- .9167 pure gold.
- Obverse depiction: Lady Liberty.
- Reverse depiction: A family of American bald eagles.
- Backed by the US Government (face value: $50)
- Recommended Supplies: 32 mm Coin Capsule, Capsule Tube, Empty Gold Eagle Tube
Both the gold and silver versions of the American Eagle Coins have been extremely popular annual releases for over thirty years.
The gold coin carries more value, which should come as no surprise. But the coin also features a distinct set of symbols. On the obverse side of the coin, Lady Liberty stands, proudly holding an olive branch in one hand and a torch in the other.
Her image has long been closely associated with the American idea of liberty. This side of the coin also features the name “Liberty,” as well as the year of minting.
The reverse side of the coin features the familiar American bald eagle, but with a twist. A male bald eagle flies, carrying an olive branch, towards a female and two young bald eagles. The mother eagle surrounds the children protectively with her wings as the male swoops in to join the family. This unique take on the iconic bald eagle is intricately designed and works well with the golden tint of the coin. To the left and right of the scene are the inscriptions “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust.” The top of the reverse side includes the inscription of “The United States of America,” while the bottom lists the coin’s weight and face value ($50 USD).
The most recent addition to the 34 consecutive yearly releases of the 1 Oz American Gold Eagle Coin, the 2021 American Gold Eagle is already turning heads within the bullion sector.
Whether you’re just starting out on your American Gold Eagle collection or you’ve faithfully purchased every version, the 2021 1 Oz American Gold Eagle coin carries with it an extensive history and an unprecedented collectability. It is not hard to imagine that these coins will only gain value as their annual releases continue well into the future.
