Why purchase this 2021 American Silver Eagle bullion coin with the Type-2 design style?
The American Silver Eagle series has been annually issued by the U.S. Mint since 1986. In the thirty-five years since its introduction, imagery of the iconic silver dollar has remained largely unaltered. That changes in 2021, with the launch of the series’ Type-2 design. The Type-2 Silver Eagle features a dramatic Eagle Landing graphic on the reverse, paired with the time-honored personification of Liberty walking. The design transition will take place mid-year, resulting in the last releases of the Type-1 design and the first releases of the Type-2 image to be minted with the 2021 date.
- This 2021 American Silver Eagle is one of the first to feature the Type-2 Eagle Landing design.
- The coin measures 40.60 mm in diameter, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
- The coin features a newly developed anti-counterfeit reeded edge variation.
- The silver dollar qualified for the First Day of Issue attribution.
- The perfectly graded coin features an exciting presidential themed label.
Magnificent Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: Lady Liberty is illustrated on the obverse carrying a cluster of oak and laurel, while strolling towards the rising sun elegantly draped in an American flag. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “2021” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The image represents a revival of the Walking Liberty image of the 1916 U.S. circulating half dollar created by renowned medallic sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. The distinctive “AW” monogram appears beneath the motto for the first time in the history of the Silver Eagle series on this 2021 dated release.
Reverse: The reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings grasping a branch of oak in its talons. The image is surrounded by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER” and “ONE DOLLAR.” The beautiful Eagle Landing design is the work of Emily Damstra, a member of the U.S. Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program.
