The coins of the American Gold Eagle Series received the first-ever overhaul to the design elements in 2021. The United States Mint made the decision to change the reverse design field of the coins with the release of 2021-dated coins, but did so at the midpoint of the year after issuing 2021-dated coins with the original designs one final time. Now, certified-perfect 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

When the United States Mint started production of 2021-dated coins in the American Gold Eagle Series, the BU and Proof versions were issued with the original design from Miley Busiek. These coins were produced through the end of June and early July in 2021, with no Burnished Gold Eagles issued with this design in 2021.
Starting in mid-to-late July 2021, the US Mint transitioned its coining presses to the production of 2021-dated Gold Eagles with the new reverse image. The start of Type 2 coining, a term used to differentiate the two versions in 2021, resulted in the release of BU, Proof, and Burnished versions of the coin.
Obverse visuals on these 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins include the vision of Liberty in front-facing relief. This effigy shows Liberty walking toward the viewer holding up a torch in one hand and carrying an olive branch in the other.
Reverse designs on 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins offer a glimpse of the new design element for the series. Here, a bald eagle head is shown in left-profile relief with impressive levels of detail bringing its physical characteristics to life.
These 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coins are available with perfect certification from the NGC. A PF70 coin showcases full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind present. The UCAM designation indicates a coin that has strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields. Early Release coins are those received for certification within 30 days of original release.
