First Flight of 2021 Gold Eagles Feature Original Designs
Collectors are extra excited about the U.S. Mint’s release of its 2021 Gold Eagles. In case you don’t know why, it’s because in First 2020 the Mint announced it would be changing the reverse design of this immensely popular coin series in 2021. The first 2021-dated Gold Eagles coming off the presses still featured Miley Busiek’s “Family of Eagles” design that has graced the coins since they debuted in 1986, but they will be replaced later in 2021 with a brand new design. It’s created first and last issue coins in the same series in the same year!
Golden Tribute to Iconic American Images
Here’s your chance to start or add to your collection of American Gold Eagles. This coin was given a Type-1 pedigree to note that it bears the original Busiek Family of Eagles Reverse design. In addition to Busiek’s reverse design, these stunning gold coins proudly display one of the nation’s most iconic symbols — Augustus Saint-Gaudens’s famous design from the Gold Double Eagle showing Lady Liberty striding towards freedom, as a reminder of the majesty, longevity, and strength of the United States.
Plus, each coin available in this offer has been graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in flawless Uncirculated Mint State-70 (MS70) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded coins have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended. In addition, PCGS has certified that these One-Ounce Gold Eagles are First Strike (FS) coins, a designation that means they were received by PCGS or an PCGS-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release. Collectors seek out these coins because they are produced with new dies and considered to have sharper strikes and deeper mirrors than those that are struck later. Each coin also comes sonically sealed in an acrylic holder and encapsulated with a label displaying the American Flag.
Authorized by Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan in 1986, the Gold Eagle Program quickly established itself as a global standard for bullion that is artistically rich, perfectly collectible and thoroughly American. Celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2021, the Fifty Dollar One-Ounce Gold Eagle has returned for one last time with both of its beloved, time-honored designs!
THE ULTIMATE SAINT-GAUDENS CREATION . . .—These One-Ounce Gold Eagles exhibit a stunning design of Lady Liberty walking forward with focus and purpose, torch in one hand and olive branch in the other. Originally introduced on the famous 1907 $20 Double Eagle and born from collaboration between Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Theodore Roosevelt, this design reveals beautifully intricate details (like the U.S. Capitol building in the distance) with each viewing.
. . . PAIRED FOR A FINAL TIME WITH A PATRIOTIC FAMILY! – Featuring a male bald eagle carrying an olive branch to his family, sculptor Miley Busiek’s design for the reverse serves as a perfect modern companion to Saint-Gaudens’ vision. Her design will be replaced by a new design later in 2021.
