Why buy this 2021-W American Silver Proof Eagle?
The American Silver Eagle and its proof counterpart are celebrating their 35th anniversary in 2021. Since their debut, American Silver Eagle coins have featured designs of a pair of legends of American numismatics, John Mercanti and Adolph Weinman. In mid-2021, the heraldic eagle reverse design that has appeared on the series since 1986 will begin transitioning to a new design created by Emily Damstra. This 2021-W Proof Silver Eagle marks the final time the U.S. Mint will strike a West Point Silver Eagle Proof with Mercanti's original heraldic eagle design! Even collectors who mostly buy bullion are sure to want at least one stunning example of this proof coin that beautifully brings out these iconic designs.
Featuring the Exquisite Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: The obverse design comes from Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty is draped in the American flag as she carries branches of laurel and oak, which represent civilian and military honors, respectively, against a backdrop of the rising sun. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021." Adolph Weinman designed two of the most important coins of the 20th century, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. This was in addition to his sculptural work, which remains on display in many American cities.
Reverse: John Mercanti created the reverse design, modelling it off of the Great Seal of the United States. Thirteen stars represent the original states at the top, while an eagle holds arrows and an olive branch while guarding a union shield below. The design is encircled by three rim inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and 'ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti has designed more coins and medals than anyone else in American history. His nearly four decade tenure at the US Mint included time as its Chief Engraver.
