Why add the 2021 American Silver Eagle NGC MS70 FDI to your collection?
This 2021 American Silver Eagle NGC MS70 FDI example features the final appearance of the original heraldic eagle reverse design on a bullion Silver Eagle. The original reverse design, created by John Mercanti, has appeared on the American Silver Eagle series since its debut in 1986. In mid-2021 the United States Mint is transitioning to an entirely new reverse design on bullion Silver Eagles, meaning there will be two separate reverse designs that appear on bullion Silver Eagles in 2021. This example features the original heraldic eagle reverse design.
