2021-W $10 Gold Eagle Type 2 Unfinished Proof Dies PCGS MS70
U.S. Mint Confirms Total Number of Gold Eagle Errors Released
By CoinWeek - November 23, 2021
All of the American Gold Eagle $10 quarter-ounce bullion coins mistakenly struck with an unfinished Proof obverse die were struck on August 24, according to a press release from Todd Martin, Deputy Chief of Corporate Communications for the United States Mint. The date on which the errors were struck had not been previously known.
Other examples have been identified; the Mint claims a total of 7,924 released.
Bullion-strike American Eagle coinage does not bear the West Point Mint facility’s “W” mint mark. The Proof die used to strike the nearly 8,000 mules had not had laser frosting applied to its devices.
It would appear that a 'W' mintmark proof die was used in making some of the non-proof bullion coins that are sold through the Mint’s Authorized Purchaser program.
Something similar happened in 1999, when $5 and $10 denomination American Eagle gold coins were also mistakenly struck with 'W' mintmarks. Those examples are highly sought after today.
Honoring of the 35th anniversary of the American Gold Eagles, the US Mint has introduced new designs mid-year 2021, creating a highly sought-after inaugural issue of these popular coins. This is the first time since their introduction in 1986, the Gold and Silver Eagles are changing design.
The Gold American Eagle is based on the original design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the 1907-1933 $20.00 US Gold Double Eagle. The reverse features a new design of American eagle, signifying the strength and security of America.
1/4 Troy Oz pure gold bullion.
Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.

Bears a face value of $10 (USD) backed by the federal government.
Obverse Depiction: A revamped version of “Walking Liberty;” Lady Liberty walks forward while holding an olive branch in one hand and a torch in the other.
Reverse Depiction: Jennie Norris depicts her brand-new design of a Bald Eagle’s facial portrait.
