The first year with the redesigned reverse and new security features is sure to be held in special regard among collectors for decades to come.
The designs of the series have remained constant, with relatively minor changes being made for their first three and a half decades. In 2021, Silver Eagles will feature a new reverse design, leaving behind a legendary design of John Mercanti. By law, this design cannot change again for at least 25 years.
The obverse design of the Silver Eagle will continue to feature Adolph Weinman’s famous Walking Liberty design. Revived for the series after first featuring on half dollars from 1916-1947, the design features Liberty draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap that identifies her as a freed slave. She walked confidently with laurel and oak branches, symbols of civilian and military honors, in her left hand. Her right hand she extends in front of her above the morning sun, as if presenting the new day to the holder.
The United States Mint has not yet revealed the new reverse design, but previous discussion of a redesign centered around contest submissions for other coins that had been rejected. The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) recommended artwork that was submitted for the 2015 US Marshals Service gold coin. As of now, that design appears to be the leading candidate, but the entire numismatic world continues to wait for the official reveal.
