Why order this American 2021 Silver Eagle?

The iconic Silver Eagle Series began in 1986 and has since become the world's most collected silver coin series. Since its inception, the series has featured the same obverse and reverse designs. That will change in mid-2021, when .an entirely new reverse design will be transitioned onto bullion coins, replacing John Mercanti's iconic heraldic eagle reverse design. This 2021-dated bullion American Silver Eagle marks one of the last times the original reverse design will appear on a bullion issue.

  • This coin is $1 U.S. legal tender.
  • The coin was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
  • This coin is part of the last issue to bear the original reverse design.
  • This piece features designs by John Mercanti and Adolph Weinman.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece MS70.

Featuring the Striking Walking LIberty Design of Adolph Weinman

Obverse: The obverse design was revived for the Silver Eagle Series after first appearing on Adolph Weinman's half dollar. Known as Walking Liberty, it features Liberty carrying branches as the morning sun rises. Obverse inscriptions include the figure's name, "LIBERTY,' the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman designed two of the most famous coins in American history, the Walking Liberty half dollar and the Mercury dime. He also sculpted countless works that can be seen to this day in cities throughout America.

Reverse: On the reverse is an adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States by John Mercanti. Thirteen stars are arranged in a triangular formation above an eagle, which protects a union shield. Along the rim are three inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent over three and a half decades with the US Mint, including time as its Chief Engraver. During that time, he designed more coins and medals than anyone else in its history.
