The most popular coin in the word has a new design for 2021! For the first time since their 1986 introduction, the Gold American Eagle has a new look. This mid-year launch has led to limited supplies of coins available, so act fast to add this new design to your collection. These coins are guaranteed to be among the first shipped from the mint.
The U.S. Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. APMEX is one of very few companies authorized to purchase all four Precious Metals from the U.S. Mint, and the only retailer among this exclusive group, allowing us to offer American Eagle products directly to our customers.
- Contains 1/4 oz actual Gold weight.
- First year of the historic redesign of the Gold Eagle, adding collectible value to these Gold coins!
- Packaged in RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2" x 3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.
- Each authentication card features the MintDirect® Premier + PCGS FirstStrike® designation, ensuring it comes directly from the U.S. Mint to you.
- Obverse: Adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design, which features Lady Liberty with flowing hair, a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The Type 2 design features added details from the original bronze cast to enhance this beloved design.
- Reverse: a bold close-up portrait of an eagle, designed by Jennie Norris. This design is the first new design introduced since the series began in 1986.

MintDirect® Premier + PCGS FirstStrike®
APMEX has partnered with PCGS to add the promise of the PCGS FirstStrike® designation to this MintDirect® Premier product. After reviewing and vetting the MintDirect® process, PCGS acknowledges these 2021 MintDirect® Premier Gold Eagles as meeting their strict requirements for FirstStrike® eligibility if they are submitted for grading in their original sealed packaging.
The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished MintDirect® Premier + PCGS FirstStrike® 2021 Gold American EagleType 2.
By using this process, APMEX guarantees the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition they were leaving the United States Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors a certainty in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin — guaranteed.
Note: The MintDirect® process does not guarantee protection from spotting or tarnishing that normally occurs in chemically active metals, such as Gold, Silver and Platinum.
New 2021 Gold Eagle Design
The United States Mint has unveiled the new reverse designs for the 2021 American Eagle Gold coins. 2021 marks the 35th Anniversary of the American Eagle Coin program, and the new designs will begin appearing on these coins in mid-year 2021. Mint Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) designer Jennie Norris created the new Gold coin design that was sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon. The new reverse design depicts a bold, up-close portrait of an eagle. The obverse has been revised with additional detail from the original design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens to enhance this classic image.

This is the new series gold eagle by the US Mint. It was worth the price buying from APMEX vs. buying direct from the US Mint. This is the first of the new design. I would definitely collect it for the design and the investment.
