This 2021 Silver Eagle coin was part of the final 200,000 Type-1 American Silver Eagles to ever be produced by the United States Mint and was also one of only 150,000 that were eligible for the Last Day of Production pedigree, which is proudly proclaimed on its certification label.
- The Type-1 heraldic eagle reverse is showcased on this 2021 American Silver Eagle coin.
- The bullion coin contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
- The coin measures 40.60 mm in diameter.
- The silver dollar includes a celebratory 35th Anniversary label.
Elegant Beauty of the Type-1 Silver Eagle
Obverse: Lady Liberty is illustrated walking on the obverse while enveloped in an American flag, as the run rises over distant mountain peaks. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “2021” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” This personification of Liberty, which first appeared on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, was created by acclaimed early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: A heraldic eagle gripping an olive branch and arrows is depicted on the reverse, surrounded by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “ONE DOLLAR” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” The design is credited to John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint’s 12th Chief Engraver.
Breathtaking Mint State 69
This 2021 American Silver Eagle bullion coin was received by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review where it was given the Last Day of Production pedigree. Featuring a remarkably sharp strike, exquisitely finished surfaces and exceptional eye appeal, the silver dollar earned the nearly perfect grade of Mint State 69. The coin is encased in a sonically sealed NGC protective holder, with a commemorative Silver Eagle 35th Anniversary themed certification label confirming its status as an exciting Last Day of Production release.
