Why add this 2-piece Type Set of flawless First Day of Issue Proof 2021-W American Silver Eagle coins to your collection?
2021 is an exciting year for the U.S. Mint and its American Silver Eagle series, with the introduction of a new reverse design for the first time ever in its thirty-five years of release! The mid-year transition has resulted in highly collectible first and last issues for the two unique design styles with the same date of 2021, replicating a similar transition from the Morgan Dollar to the Peace Dollar exactly one hundred years ago in 1921. For the Silver Eagle, the change primarily affects the reverse, with the classic heraldic eagle graphic (Type-1) replaced by a realistic depiction of an eagle landing (Type-2).
Beautifully Symbolic Silver Eagle Designs
Obverse: Each obverse is adorned with the powerful image of Lady Liberty walking towards the dawning sun, with an American flag elegantly draped around her figure. She reaches forward with her right arm in a gesture of welcome, while in her left arm she cradles a bouquet of oak and laurel branches, which are representations of honor, strength and victory. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." This personification of Liberty by acclaimed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman was originally created for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The image has appeared on the Silver Eagle obverse since the series' 1986 introduction and will continue to do so on the Type-2 style releases, with the addition of one important design element. The Type-2 Silver Eagle includes the artist's "AW" monogram beneath the motto for the first time in the history of the series.
Type-1 Reverse, minted 1986 until mid-2021: A heraldic eagle is centered on the reverse, with its wings outstretched, while clutching a bundle of arrows and an olive branch. Thirteen stars appear above, in recognition of the original colonies. This design is the work of sculptor/engraver John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint's currently retired 12th Chief Engraver. Type-2 Reverse, launched in 2021: An eagle is depicted on the reverse, portrayed in graceful flight with its wings lifted in preparation for landing. The magnificent bird's talons are curled around a branch of oak, which is a symbol for wisdom and longevity. The Eagle Landing graphic was created by award-winning science illustrator Emily Damstra, designer of more than forty coin and medal images for the national Mints of the United States and Canada. The Type-1 and Type-2 reverses are accompanied by the same inscriptions: "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint.
Perfect Ultra Cameo Proof 70 Set
Each component of this 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle Type-1 and Type-2 Set was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and was deemed to be in impeccable Proof 70 condition. For the remarkable amount of contrast between the frosted and mirrored finishes, each proof was awarded the additional designation of Ultra Cameo (UC). The silver dollars are presented together in a specially designed NGC dual coin holder accompanied by a First Day of Issue certification label adorned with vignettes of the two Silver Eagle reverse designs.
