Why add this exquisitely minted First Day of Issue 2021-S American Silver Eagle Type-2 Proof coin to your collection of precious metal treasures?
The U.S. Mint has issued the American Silver Eagle series since 1986. For the first thirty-five years of the series, the design of the silver dollar remained consistent. This mid-year, 2021 release of the series represents the one of the inaugural Type-2 designs of the Silver Eagle. This first major design modification of the series effects the reverse, replacing the classic Heraldic Eagle image (Type-1) with a lifelike Eagle Landing graphic (Type-2).
Breathtaking Silver Eagle with the New Type-2 Imagery
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is the personification of Liberty that has graced the obverse of the Silver Eagle since its inception in 1986. Lady Liberty is depicted draped in a billowing American flag, walking towards the rising sun carrying branches of oak and laurel. The inscription "LIBERTY" curves above, with "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021" below. This iconic rendition of Ms. Liberty, created by famed early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, is borrowed from the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The only change to the Type-2 obverse is the appearance of the artist's initials "AW," for the first time in the series' thirty-five year history.
Reverse: The reverse features a gorgeous eagle in flight, as it raises its wings in preparation for landing, with an oak branch in its grip. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the "S" Mint mark. The Type-2 design is credited to Emily Damstra, the U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist who also crafted the heartfelt imagery for the 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Program.
