Why does this perfectly graded First Day of Issue 2021-S Proof American Silver Eagle Type-2 coin deserve a place in your collection?
2021 is a year of transition for the U.S. Mint's American Silver Eagle series. For the first time in the thirty-five years since the coin was introduced in 1986, the coin features a new design. The iconic vision of Lady Liberty that is synonymous with the Silver Eagle remains unchanged, while the heraldic eagle design (Type-1) has been retired. In its place, the Type-2 graphic portrays a realistic eagle readying for landing while clutching an oak branch, which symbolizes strength, honor and longevity.
Gorgeous American Classic with the Type-2 Design
Obverse: The obverse is graced with the American flag-wrapped walking form of Lady Liberty as she approaches the morning sun. She cradles a bouquet of oak and laurel branches in her left arm, while reaching forward to welcome a hopeful future with her right. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2021" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." The patriotic image is an adaptation of the design created by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman for the U.S. circulating half dollar minted from 1916-1947. The personification of Liberty is unaltered for the Type-2 Silver Eagle design, however there is one important element added to the obverse composition. For the first time in the series' history, Mr. Weinman's "AW" monogram accompanies the image.
Reverse: An eagle lifts its wings in preparation for landing on the reverse, with a branch of oak in its grip. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "ONE DOLLAR," along with the "S" Mint mark of the San Francisco Mint. The Type-2 Eagle Landing image was crafted by science and nature illustrator Emily Damstra. Ms. Damstra is the artist behind various coinage designs for the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints, as well as stamps focused on endangered species for the United Nations Postal Administration.
