US Mint Opens Sales for Designer Edition American Eagle Gold 2-Coin Set August 5

The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2021 American Eagle One-Tenth Ounce Gold Two-Coin Set Designer Edition on August 5 at noon Eastern Time. Production of this set is limited to 5,000 units, with orders limited to one set per household for the first 24 hours of sales.

The coins in this special set are struck in 22-karat gold at the West Point Mint. One coin features the last of the original American Eagle Gold Coin reverse designs, and the other features the first of the new reverse designs. Both coins are encapsulated and packaged in a single black presentation case that is enclosed in an outer sleeve emblazoned with images of both reverse designs. The accompanying Certificate of Authenticity is numbered, and a limited quantity is signed by United States Mint Director David J. Ryder.

The 2021 American Eagle Gold Coin original obverse design depicts a version of 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. The 2021 original reverse design, which depicts a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and eaglets, was sculpted by Miley Busiek Frost and executed by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Sherl J. Winter.

The new 2021 obverse design depicts the same full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. For the 2021 coin, the Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Saint-Gaudens’ original vision and includes the addition of his traditional artist mark. The 2021 new reverse design features a magnificent portrayal of an eagle by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon.

Pricing for the 2021 American Eagle One-Tenth Ounce Gold Two-Coin Set Designer Edition is based on the Mint’s pricing range table for gold coins. Current pricing information is available at catalog.usmint.gov.

  1. Do any average collectors get to successfully purchase these products? I was locked and loaded before noon, had the product in my cart within 30 seconds and could not complete my order. The usual check out snafu, reloading, etc. At approximately the one minute mark or a little after I got the dreaded notice “remove from cart, product no longer available”. It’s gotten to a point where buying these limited mintage coins is akin to winning the lottery. In fact lottery odds may actually be better! The ordering system at the US Mint has been a mess for at least the past 2 years. Then they compounded the felony by conducting presales to 10 or so favored profiteers, thus significantly reducing the quantity of already highly limited coins available to retail customers. Downright disgusting!

  2. I don’t know if I happened to get in before everybody else, but at exactly 9 am (PT) I clicked on the set, put 1 in my cart and checked out successfully, all within 8 seconds. No glitches at all. And this is for my collection, and not for Pinehurst or a flipper.

  3. I know it won’t happen but if people just stop buying overpriced coins that the mint gives to preferential buyers before they let us buy them maybe they would stop.
    Stop buying coins from the mint 10 years ago but I did try to buy these 10th oz gold coins.
    I got through on the phone within 1 minute and the lady wanted my name and address and phone number and then asked me what I wanted to order and by then they were sold out. Might have been better if she put it in my cart first.
    Either way I won’t be buying any more coins from the Mint.
    You guys can have fun playing with them.
    I’ll stick with coins I can get as close to spot.
