Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2021 American Silver Eagle bullion coin?
The U.S. Mint has issued the American Silver Eagle series for three and a half decades. During that time, its time-honored patriotic imagery has remained unchanged, but that is about to change. The 2021 Silver Eagle, the series' 36th year of issue, will feature two different reverse designs. Only early-year releases such as this one will be minted with the original Heraldic Eagle image sculpted by John Mercanti, the Mint's currently retired 12th Chief Engraver. Bullion Silver Eagles with the newly designed reverse are planned for release later in the year.
Gorgeous Silver Eagle Imagery
Obverse: The obverse depicts an American flag-wrapped Lady Liberty walking, while holding a bundle of oak and laurel branches. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2021" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This design was initially created for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar by Adolph A. Weinman, the sculptor also credited with the 1916 Mercury Dime design.
Reverse: A heraldic eagle adorns the reverse, grasping an olive branch and a cluster of arrows, symbolizing freedom, peace and strength. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Flawless Mint State 70
