Gold American Eagle 1/2 oz (2021) BU

$1,018.19

The 2021 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Bullion Coin from the United States Mint contains one-half troy ounce of pure gold, which by law, is taken from newly mined sources in the United States. The balance of the coin’s composition consists of silver and copper, added to increase the coin’s durability and to help resist scratching and marring.  The 2021 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle in Beautiful Uncirculated is a must have for any collector or investment portfolio.  It is one of the few coins recognized at currency on the international markets.

For the first time since their 1986 introduction, the Gold Eagles will receive a redesign, so this will be the final year of the iconic coin!   The anticipated design changes mark the beginning of a new era for these popular series. Act now to add the final issue of the classic design to your collection! 

Description

Since 1986, the American Gold Eagle has been the flagship gold bullion coin of the United States Mint. Its reputation has grown since that time, making it the most widely traded gold coin in the world.

In terms of gold weight, the coin contains one-half troy ounce (0.5 troy oz) of pure gold. Its face value as legal tender is $25.

Unlike most world bullion coins, all Gold Eagles are .917 fine gold (22 karats). This makes them more durable and results in an attractive deep gold color. Each of these coins still has 1/2 troy oz of pure gold by weight.

The obverse design uses an updated version of the classic Saint-Gaudens double eagle motif. Lady Liberty triumphantly stands atop a hill holding an olive branch in one hand and lit torch in the other. The U.S. Capitol building is visible in the distance as radiant light emerges from the horizon. Fifty stars line the outer rim. The date “2021” is placed to the right of Miss Liberty and “LIBERTY” is inscribed at the top rim. The coin’s edge design is reeded.

A family of bald eagles appears on the reverse. This original design is the work of artist Miley Busiek. The father eagle returns to the family nest carrying an olive branch. Two baby eaglets are cradled in the mother eagle’s wing. The mottoes “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” are inscribed to the left and right, respectively. The issuing country “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” runs across the top rim in bold lettering. At the bottom rim, the weight and denomination are found, reading “1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD~25 DOLLARS.”

This will be the final year of the iconic design before the new issue is released in 2022!  The 2021 American Gold Eagles are sure to become collectors items for years to come!
