Why purchase this flawless First Day of Issue 2-coin set of Burnished 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 coins?
The U.S. Mint has introduced a new design for the reverse of its American Silver Eagle in 2021! The momentous change celebrates the thirty-five year anniversary of the series. Known as the Type-2 style, the reverse features a newly-designed eagle image, while the iconic rendition of Walking Liberty remains on the obverse. This stunning set of 2021 dated coins are among the first to be minted with the Type-2 eagle landing design, combined with the sleek satiny burnished (Uncirculated) finish that the Mint introduced to the series in 2006 for the Silver Eagle's 20th anniversary.
Spectacular Type-2 Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: An image of Lady Liberty strolling towards the sunrise is centered on the obverse. The young woman carries a bouquet of oak and laurel branches, while an American flag billows around her walking form. This timeless personification of Liberty was originally created for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin by Adolph A. Weinman, an acclaimed medallic and architectural sculptor of the early 20th century. Although this imagery has appeared on the Silver Eagle since its 1986 introduction, the Type-2 style includes the artist's "AW" monogram beneath the motto for the first time in the history of the series.
Reverse: The reverse features an eagle preparing to land in an unseen nest, with an oak branch in its grip. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "ONE DOLLAR," along with the "W" Mint mark. The Type-2 Eagle Landing graphic is credited to U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Emily Damstra, who is known for award-winning nature themed illustrations. Ms. Damstra's stunning rendition of the national bird was brought to fruition by sculptor Michael Gaudioso, who has designed/sculpted more than forty coin and medal images since joining the Mint's legion of sculptor/engravers in 2009.
