Why add this First Day of Issue San Francisco Mint Type-2 2021-S American Silver Eagle Proof coin to your collection?
2021 is an exciting year for the U.S. Mint's American Silver Eagle series, marking both an end and a beginning in design style. For the first time in the series' thirty-five years of production, design of the coin has changed. While the obverse rendition of Lady Liberty remains virtually untouched, the reverse Heraldic Eagle (Type-1) graphic has been honorably retired and replaced with the Type-2 design, a magnificent realistic interpretation of the national bird as it prepares to land.
Type-2 Landing Eagle Image Paired with a Historic Rendition of Lady Liberty
Obverse: The obverse portrays Lady Liberty gracefully walking towards the sunrise, while elegantly enveloped in the folds of the United States flag. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." This allegorical figure of Liberty appeared first on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by acclaimed early 20th century American sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. For the first time in Silver Eagle series history, the artist is credited on the Type-2 obverse with the initials "AW."
Reverse: The reverse features an eagle grasping a branch of oak, with its wings raised to slow its descent. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR" and the "S" Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. The Type-2 Eagle Landing design is an example of the artistry of Emily Damstra, a U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist since 2014. In addition to coinage imagery, Ms. Damstra has designed informational illustrations for museum, park and zoo signage.
