A quarter ounce American Eagle gold coin from 2021, featuring the new Type 2 reverse design.
The obverse design features Lady Liberty with flowing hair holding a torch and olive branch, which was originally produced by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the US Mint’s limited edition Double Eagle coins in the early 1900s.
The new Type II design is by artist Jennie Norris and was sculpted by the US Mint's Renata Gordon. It features a close-up focus on the national bird in stunning detail, and features the normal inscriptions surrounding it. The new design promises to freshen up the long-standing series, as well as allowing the US Mint to update it's anti-counterfeiting measures.
