Description

Why purchase this 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 proof coin?

2021 marks the beginning of a new chapter for the U.S. Mint’s American Silver Eagle series. After thirty-five years of issue with relatively unchanged graphics, the Mint has replaced the classic heraldic eagle reverse design with a dramatic new realistic image of an Eagle Landing. The Type-2 Silver Eagle will continue to feature the time-honored rendition of Walking Liberty on the obverse.

  • This 2021-W American Silver Eagle proof coin represents the first release of the Type-2 Eagle Landing design.
  • The 40.60 mm diameter proof silver dollar contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin is a West Point Mint product, struck with the “W” Mint mark.
  • The coin’s enhanced security features include a new anti-counterfeit reeded edge variation.
  • The coin will ship in its original Mint packaging with an Authenticity Certificate.

Magnificent Type-2 Silver Eagle Design

Obverse: Lady Liberty is illustrated on the obverse carrying a bundle of oak and laurel branches, while walking toward the rising sun, draped in an American flag. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “2021” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The iconic Walking Liberty image created by award-winning medallic sculptor Adolph A. Weinman is borrowed from the 1916 U.S. circulating half dollar design. Although Walking Liberty has adorned the Silver Eagle since the series’ inception in 1986, the Type-2 releases are the first to include the artist’s distinctive “AW” monogram.

Reverse: The reverse features a stunningly beautiful eagle in flight, with its wings raised in preparation for landing. In its talons, the creature grips an oak branch intended for its nest. The image is bordered by the inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER” and “ONE DOLLAR,” with the West Point Mint mark “W” located in the polished field above the eagle’s tail feathers. The Type-2 Eagle Landing graphic is the work of Emily Damstra, a member of the U.S. Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program since 2014.

Spectacular Proof Coin

This Type-2 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle proof coin features a superior quality strike, beautifully finished frosted and mirrored surfaces and exceptional eye appeal. The 1 oz. silver dollar coin is encapsulated and housed in an elegant black Mint branded display box, accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity adorned with the iconic Walking Liberty image, and protective sleeve showcasing the new Type-2 Eagle Landing graphic.
