Patriotic Landing Eagle Design by Emily Damstra
Obverse: The coin's obverse design, which has been used since the series began, is Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty. Draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, Liberty carries laurel and oak branches in the early morning sun. Weinman's artist mark is included on this face for the first time. Obverse inscriptions read, "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021." Adolph Weinman was a prominent sculptor, whose work can still be seen in many American cities. He also made numerous numismatic contributions, including designing both faces of the Mercury Dime and the Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
Reverse: Emily Damstra's new reverse design shows an eagle landing with an oak branch in its talons. The statutory inscription "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is just inside the rim inscriptions. Those inscriptions note the coin's country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," face value, "ONE DOLLAR," and metal content, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER."
