The entire series of gold American eagle coins have been redesigned in the latter half of 2021, marking the 35th anniversary of the iconic coin. In a more compact package, the 1/2 oz American gold eagle shares the same redesign as its big brother.

This new Type 2 design features a restored Walking Liberty on the obverse side, bringing the coin closer to the original vision of the artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens. A ring of 50 stars encircles Liberty with rays of sunshine at her back. At first glance, you might mistake a Type 2 eagle for a Type 1. Until you turn it over.

The completely updated reverse features Jennie Norris’ side-profile of a bald eagle in breathtaking detail on the reverse side. The close-up image of the eagle's head shows individual feathers, a glaring eye, and a fiercely hooked beak. Let’s not forget, this animal is not just a symbol; it’s also a hunter and a predator. As before, the words “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God, We Trust” are inscribed as well. The initials JN are inscribed in raised lettering below the noble yet savage eagle.

The American eagle series is the most popular of all the precious metal coins ever released by the U.S. Mint, and the full-ounce versions are the official gold and silver bullion coins of the U.S. The 1/2 oz versions are the largest of the fractional American eagle coins, offering greater flexibility for investors. Buying gold in smaller amounts allows for a lower entry price per coin, a more diverse portfolio, and even (in a worst-case scenario) bartering in more precise quantities of gold.

Each of these coins is struck in 22 kt or 0.9167 fine gold and contains half an ounce of pure gold. Each also has a nominal face value of $25. The U.S. Mint has added a newly-designed reeded edge to the Type 2 coin as an anti-counterfeiting measure, making your investment more secure than ever. 

The new design of these coins has been a significant event in the numismatic community, with many investors worldwide expressing an interest. Remember: this is very likely the only year and your only chance to add both Type 1 and Type 2 American gold eagle coins of the same year to your collection. It may be another 35 years before collectors and investors have this same opportunity...

Coin features

  • A highly anticipated redesign with worldwide interest and demand
  • Half a troy ounce of pure gold, minted in 22kt 91.67% crown gold alloy for high wear resistance
  • Fractional weight offers a lower price per unit and greater affordability
  • New anti-counterfeiting measures in the form of a reeded edge
  • Stunning image of the national bird of the U.S. in very fine detail
  • Possibly your only chance to add 2021 Type 1 and Type 2 designs to your collection

*We pack individual coins in plastic sleeves for protection before shipping. If you order 10+ of the same coin, we’ll secure them in protective tubes before shipping.

What are your shipping, handling, and insurance charges?
BullionMax offers free shipping when you spend over $min_freeship_cart. We have no minimum order requirement; however, orders under $min_freeship_cart will be charged a shipping fee of $9.95. 


How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
