Why does this impressively graded West Point Mint 2021 Type-1 and Type-2 American Silver Eagle Proof coin set belong in your collection?
2021 is an unprecedented year for the U.S. Mint's American Silver Eagle series, marking the first time in the series' thirty-five years of issue that there has been a major modification to the coin's design. The change in imagery retires the iconic heraldic eagle (Type-1) on the reverse, replacing it with a breathtaking rendition of an eagle landing (Type-2). With the transition from the Type-1 to the Type-2 designs complete, there are now two distinct Silver Eagle coin releases with the date of 2021, an event which last occurred to the U.S. silver dollar when the Peace Dollar replaced the Morgan Dollar exactly a century ago in 1921.
Gorgeous Silver Eagle Designs
Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse walking towards the rising sun, while draped in an American flag and carrying a bundle of oak and laurel branches. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." This allegorical interpretation of Liberty is borrowed from the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by renowned early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. Even though the Walking Liberty image has graced the obverse of the Silver Eagle since its 1986 introduction, proper credit to the designer has not been part of the coin's design. The Type-2 Silver Eagle coin includes the artist's initials "AW," in a monogram style, for the first time in the history of the series.
Type-1 Reverse (1986 until mid-2021): The reverse features a heraldic eagle graphic inspired by the patriotic image of the Great Seal of the United States. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the West Point Mint mark "W." The design is one of over a hundred coin and medal images created by acclaimed sculptor/engraver John Mercanti during his tenure at the Mint from 1974 until 2010. Mr. Mercanti was the Mint's 12th Chief Engraver from 2006-2010. Type-2 Reverse (introduced 2021): A majestic eagle is illustrated on the reverse, as it slows its flight for landing. The beautifully detailed national bird grasps a branch of oak, an emblem symbolizing strength, honor and endurance. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "W." The Eagle Landing image is the work of nature illustrator Emily Damstra, whose additional credits include various coinage designs for the Royal Canadian and U.S. Mints, and a collection of stamp designs created for the United Nations Postal Administration.
