Why add this Brilliant Uncirculated 2021 American Silver Eagle Type-2 coin to your collection of precious metals?
The U.S. Mint has issued the American Silver Eagle series annually since 1986 with virtually no changes to its iconic patriotic design. In 2021, the 35th year of issue for the popular series, the Mint is retiring the heraldic eagle (Type-1) image on the reverse and replacing it with a newly designed rendition of the national bird. The Type-2 reverse features an eagle with a branch of oak in its grasp. Oak leaves are a symbol of independence, strength, longevity, truth, and life itself.
Exciting Type-2 American Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: The obverse features the time-honored rendition of Lady Liberty as a young woman, strolling toward the rising sun while draped in an American flag. The lovely lady cradles a bouquet of long oak and laurel branches, symbols of strength, honor, and triumph. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2021," and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This personification of Liberty by famed early 20th-century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman was first struck upon the circulating Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin in 1916. For the first time in the history of the series Adolph Weinman's initials, "AW" will appear below the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST."
Reverse: The new Type-2 reverse depicts a magnificently detailed eagle in flight preparing to land, with a branch of oak clutched in its talons. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." The "Eagle Landing" design is the work of science Illustrator Emily Damstra. Damstra has created interpretive signage for museums, zoos, and natural areas, as well as multiple coinage designs for the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints.

Experts at Asset Marketing Services point to economic factors and historic coin revisions as driving interest in classic American Eagle coins to date.
Introduced simultaneously in 1986, the American Silver Eagle and American Gold Eagle -were both intended to create an American bullion coin that would compete with similar coins from other world mints. However, they soon became much more than that.
American Silver Eagles serve as the backbone of many collections around the world. Here are some of the key dates that even some of the most avid collectors have not yet managed to add to their collections.
In October of 2019, U.S Mint officials announced that they will be introducing new designs for the American Silver Eagle and American Gold Eagle at some point in mid-2021.
