2021 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle BU – Type 2 Description:
The Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 permitted the production of the Gold American Eagle coin beginning in 1986. The United States government guarantees the weight and purity of each coin.
The Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 stipulates that the gold used in the Gold American Eagle production must come from the United States. The gold must be alloyed with silver and copper to create a more durable wear-resistant coin. The resulting Gold American Eagle coin is a tribute to our great country and offers investors the opportunity to buy American gold!
The Lady Liberty design on the obverse of the Gold American Eagle coin is based mainly on Augustus Saint-Gaudens's original interpretation. President Theodore Roosevelt selected Saint-Gaudens to redesign American coinage. His first effort was a beautifully designed high-relief $20 coin depicting Lady Liberty first minted in 1907.
In the current design, Lady Liberty strides forward with her right foot in front of her left, holding a torch in her right hand, an olive branch in her left, and her long hair brilliantly flowing to the right.
Redesigned Gold American Eagle Reverse
While we normally see designs incorporating a full eagle, new Gold Eagle features a close-up and personal perspective of our nation’s official bird. The intensity of the bald eagle’s stare and the detail in the feathering around the neck is striking.
The coin is inscribed with,"UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "10 DOLLARS," and "1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD."
