Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2021 American Silver Eagle Type-2 bullion coin?
The U.S. Mint has introduced a new design for its American Silver Eagle series in 2021. As a result, the series will feature two different designs bearing the date of 2021. While the Walking Liberty obverse will remain largely unchanged, the reverse design will transition from the Type-1 heraldic eagle graphic that has appeared on the series since 1986, to the Type-2 image of a realistic view of an Eagle Landing.
Powerful Symbolic Imagery
Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse walking towards the rising sun with an American flag draped around her form. She carries long branches of oak and laurel, which are traditional representations of strength, honor and victory. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2021" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This rendition of Liberty, created by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, made its first appearance on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. As a tribute to Weinman, the Type-2 Silver Eagle features the "AW" monogram below the motto, for the first time since the Silver Eagle's' introduction in 1986.
Reverse: The Type-2 Silver Eagle reverse is adorned with an eagle grasping an oak branch, with its wings raised in descending flight. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR." The design is credited to Emily Damstra, the U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist who also created the imagery for the 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Program.
