So Are You Excited With The New American Eagle?

Like I said I'm up there in age. I have never sold a coin . I would rather give them away. I'm looking forward to this. But I'm also  very nervious. This coin will represent our country. The most coin sold anywhere. I know the obverse . It's the reverse I'm worried about. The ASE represents the strength of our country. The dynamics of our country.The people most of all. The new reverse must also do this. The designers as you have seen are very conservative. This worries me. I received an email for six days about the woman's new commen. I mean that's the best they can do. This is why I'm worried. Imagine 30 years of an eagle a mighty bird who is one of our stranded bearers looking like a soup chicken. I hope and pray they think outside the box and gives us a coin that says this is America and were proud of it. I will not see the end of this series. But expect sub sets anniversary coins all sorts of finishes. I hope there work is worth it.

I agree with you...Our coins designs represent our country. Sometimes designs need to be changes but like you, I dont care for the reverse design..It seems to me that since the age of the computer designs have become cold and have lost the feeling of being designed by hand as in the past...I've been collecting for 41 years and I rarely buy modern coins...mostly pre 64

You are both correct.  I do not know the reason, but newer coins including commemoratives just don't seem to have the imagination and the detail the older coins do.  I consider older coins for the purpose of this comment to be pre 1995 or there about.

Like.you said. The coins are made differently today . Lasers chemicals. Tell me why there was no name on the May Flower . That could of been the Santa Maria for all we know.I have coins as small as tokens with stars in them. Don't tell me they couldn't make these people smile they look sorry they got here. I did not check the morning of the 19 November times a if the medal is still for sale. Unwillingness and get back. Still on sale no sell out 20,000. We're finally making a statement we will not buy anything ugly. Every May Flower item sold is on ebay. Even the medal!! There paying double for something still for sale!!

I am pretty nervous about this sudden change as well. It's hard to beat the reverse of the original design, and the obverse is too good to be replaced

While I don't own a single ASE, not because of the design but for unknown reasons, the new reverse designs I've seen thus far are truly disappointing. Being blunt, ugly. Why? Compare the new reverse designs to that of Adolph Weinman's Lady Liberty which will remain on the obverse. They clash in such a hideous way. So, since I don't have any yet the new ones are definitely not going to reside in my collection. As for the eagle, aside from any future commemorative designs, no coin will have one on the reverse with the 2021 quarter coming. Something unchanged since 1792. Another lame idea from the United States Mint.

I agree with Long Beard. The new reverse is not for me  but everyone will buy at least five to start. I want to see the price. That's going to be important. I have a feeling it will be high. People.Will pay for it.. Time will tell. So far there record this year is nothing to talk about. I'm worried about the future  money wise.as well as these boring commens.

The mint stated that the new designs won't come out till late summer 2021. Why bother. They screwed me with buy a bunch of different "last year" 2020.

Mint definitely "screwed the pooch" this year, they preach about listening to their members and then screw em with pushing the "Last Year of issue", knowing the old style will be released until summer of 2021.  Then they pull the coin scrum with ridiculously limited minted coins, not once, but three times in November.  Yeah, not pleased, but find myself a captive customer.  One of the reasons I have purchased so much from the Royal Canadian Mint.  By the way U.S. Mint, that's money I used to spend with you.

The Mint is so clueless that they probably would think my above comments mean I want colorized coins.  Clueless!
