Why order this 2021-W American 1 oz Silver Eagle Type 2 Proof?
The American Silver Eagle Proof marks its 35th anniversary in 2021, and the occasion presents collectors with a unique opportunity. The United States Mint released 2021-dated Silver Eagles bearing the original Type-1 Heraldic Eagle design until mid-2021 when the Type-2 Eagle Landing design debuted. Collectors now have the chance to get both a Type 1 and Type 2 version of the coin in the same year. This new type has a new reverse design, enhanced security features, and Adolph Weinman's artist mark on the obverse.
Striking Eagle Landing Design by Emily Damstra
Obverse: The traditional obverse design, Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty, returns to the obverse. Liberty is draped in the American flag as she carries branches striding confidently in the early morning sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed along the rim, while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021," are also included on this face. Adolph Weinman made many numismatic contributions, the most notable of which were designing the Mercury Dime and Walking Liberty Half Dollar. He was also a sculptor, and his work is still displayed in numerous American cities.
Reverse: Emily Damstra's new reverse design depicts an eagle preparing to land with an oak branch in its claws. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," and its metal content, "1 OZ FINE SILVER," are inscribed along the rim. Also included on this face is the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
Virtually Flawless PF69 UC FR with Exclusive Eagle Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) provided the grading information for this coin on an exclusive Eagle label. NGC graded the piece Proof 69, which means that it appears perfect to the unaided eye. NGC also certified the coin Ultra Cameo (UC) and First Releases (FR). UC means that it exhibits particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields, while FR indicates that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial release from the mint.
