2021 American Gold Eagle Designs
The iconic Double Eagle design of Augustus Saint-Gaudens will retain its place on the obverse. Liberty strikes a confident pose in which she faces the holder with her torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. The Capitol Dome is rendered in miniature in the lower left, while the morning sun's rays spread out in the background, making the central figure appear larger than life. Fifty stars spread throughout the rim. "LIBERTY" is inscribed at the top, and the date "2021" is included to the right.
The new reverse design features a close-up look at America's national bird. The bald eagle appears fierce and determined. The two statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed just above the bird's head. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," spreads throughout the top half of the rim, while the coin's respective face value and weight are noted on the bottom half of the edge.
