After more than three decades in production with the same iconic design elements, the United States Mint is bringing change to its Gold Eagle Series for the first time in history.

Each 2022 1 oz American Gold Eagle Type 2 Coin listed here comes in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in the 1 oz Gold Eagle Series are packaged in plastic flips for individual coins, tubes of 20, or Monster Boxes of 500. The Monster Box holds a total of 25 individual tubes of 20 coins each.

The US Mint is revamping the reverse images of the bald eagle featured on both the American Silver Eagle and all four American Gold Eagles in 2022. However, you will notice the 2022 release cycle has a Type 1 and Type 2 option. New dies to be used in the coining process were not ready in late 2020 when the US Mint began striking 2022-dated coins. As a result, the mint issued the original design combinations for both programs under the moniker Type 1, with the midyear shift to the new reverse designs earning a distinction of Type 2 to help separate the 2022-dated coins by the design combinations featured.

Lady Liberty remains on the obverse of 2022 American Gold Eagle Coins. This design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens was created in 1907 and originally featured on the Double Eagle, Americas highest denomination coin from the US Eagle circulation series. The design remained on that coin until 1933 when gold coining halted in the US.
