EDITOR NOTE: Redesigned 2021 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins are going on sale at the end of this month with orders limited to one coin per household for 24 hours on the on-sale date and time. Whether you go for these coins or for other non-CUSIP gold and silver coins or bars, the main point is to invest in the physical metals and store them in a private depository of your choosing. Many investors are flocking to paper gold and silver as safe havens. Not only will most of them NOT have the “true ownership privilege” of obtaining their metals, but nearly all of them also will never know whether there’s any physical gold or silver stored under their claim, or whether it’s a giant “bucket shop” game. A promissory note is not money. Paper gold and silver have no purchasing power in themselves because both are promissory notes. And a claim to ownership can never be fulfilled if the terms of that ownership prevent you from ever seeing the object you supposedly “own.”

Coins feature newly designed reverse and enhanced obverse

WASHINGTONJuly 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The United States Mint (Mint) is pleased to announce the beginning of sales for redesigned 2021 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins on July 29, at noon EDT. Orders are limited to one coin per household for the first 24 hours from the on-sale date and time.

Struck in 22-karat gold at the West Point Mint, these popular coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins. For the first time since their debut more than three decades ago, the reverse (tails) of American Eagle Gold Proof Coins features a newly designed portrayal of an eagle, created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," and "IN GOD WE TRUST," along with the face value and weight.

The coins' obverse (heads) features Augustus Saint-Gaudens' full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. To render a closer reflection of Saint-Gaudens' original vision, legacy details have been restored that include modifications to the U.S. Capitol Building, stars, torch, sun rays, and other design elements based on the original bronze cast.

In addition to redesigning the reverse and enhancing design details on the obverse (heads) of these coins, the Mint introduced anti-counterfeiting features that include a reeded edge variation on the one ounce coin (only).

The redesigned American Eagle Gold Proof Coins will be available in the following five product options:

  • PRODUCT CODE: 21EBN,PRODUCT OPTION: One Ounce Coin, PRODUCT LIMIT*: 5,625, MINTAGE LIMIT*: 15,875

  • PRODUCT CODE: 21ECN, PRODUCT OPTION: One-Half Ounce Coin, PRODUCT LIMIT*: 2,000, MINTAGE LIMIT*: 12,250
