Just noticed the new counterfeit security feature on the gold/silver proof eagles. US mint pics show a missing reed on the bottom of the 2021 Type 2 proof 1oz gold and silver eagles with brief description. Wow. Not impressed. Looks pretty easy to make fakes. I hope there's more to this or another anti-counterfeit feature coming, laser engraving and padlock like on the Britannia?

those are artist renderings still I believe and they've kept it pretty secret exactly what they are doing, not sure what they are doing but I'd thing theres going to be a precise placement of that space in the reeding, and maybe vary it by year. I'd also expect there to be other ACMs incorperated or something done with that spot.

the entire reverse is changed and the feather detail won't be easy to reproduce in my opinion,







I mean there's clear differences on the obverse, and much more differences on the reverse besides just the notch in the reeding. The "AW" isn't going to be easy to pull off right either. In my opinion they went pretty soft and shallow on the obverse to make the details harder to copy well, while making the reverse highly detailed and making that harder to copy well also.

You are correct, these should be harder to fake than older ones and more security features hopefully coming. I just don't think the reed gap adds much to security as of now.
