Category: Gold Eagles
First issued in 1986 the American Gold Eagle has long been a favorite among U.S. coin collectors. Now, after 35 years this classic and popular coin is being updated with an enhanced obverse design and a brand new reverse!
Like the original, this type 2 Gold Eagle is issued in 4 different sizes (1oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz, 1/10oz) and denominations ($50, $25, $10, $5). Also like the original, the obverse features a modified rendition of the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens design that was used on U.S. twenty-dollar gold pieces from 1907-1933. However, thanks to technological advancements in the design and minting process, Liberty now encompasses some of Weinman's original details that were not previously possible!
The new reverse was designed by artist Jennie Norris and sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon. It features an incredibly detailed, up close portrait of a bald eagle surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "IN GOD WE TRUST", "5 DOLLARS" and "1/10th OZ FINE GOLD".
This 2021 $5 1/10th oz Gold Eagle Type 2 has been certified MS70 First Releases by NGC!! In addition, the label has been hand signed by the designer of the new reverse, Jennie Norris!! This exclusive pedigree has a NGC population of ONLY 355!!
