Why purchase this 2021 MS70 American Silver Eagle?
Collectors have one last chance to own a bullion Silver Eagle with the original Heraldic Eagle reverse design with this early 2021 edition. In 2019, the United States Mint announced plans to change the reverse design of the iconic series for the first time in its history. The new reverse design created by Emily Damstra will start appearing on bullion Silver Eagles in mid-2021. This historic issue featuring the original heraldic eagle reverse design should be a part of every collection of important American coins.
Patriotic Walking Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
Obverse: Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design features on the obverse. Liberty is draped in the American flag and dons a Phrygian cap as she carries laurel and oak branches, symbols of civilian and military honors, against a backdrop of the rising sun. Inscriptions on the obverse include the figure's name, "LIBERTY," the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman is best known for his Mercury dime and Walking Liberty half dollar. Besides these important contributions to America's early 20th century numismatic renaissance, he also created several sculptures, which can be seen to this day in numerous American cities.
Reverse: An eagle clutches arrows, symbols of military readiness, and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, while protecting a union shield under 13 stars on the reverse. John Mercanti modeled the design after the Great Seal of the United States. Inscriptions along the rim provide essential information about the piece, including its country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," its weight, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and its face value, "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti is a giant of modern numismatics. He spent 37 years with the US Mint, during which time he designed more coins and medals than anyone else in American history. Part of his time with the mint was spent as its Chief Engraver
