Why add this perfectly struck First Day of Issue 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 Proof coin to your collection of precious metal treasures?
In 2021, after thirty-five consecutive years of issue, the U.S. Mint bids farewell to the iconic heraldic eagle (Type-1) graphic on the reverse of its popular American Silver Eagle series. The replacement design, launched mid-year in 2021, features a freshly crafted rendition of the national bird, as a magnificent lifelike creature in flight preparing to land.
Gorgeous Silver Eagle with the new Type-2 Imagery
Obverse: Centered on the obverse is the allegorical figure of Liberty that has adorned the obverse of the Silver Eagle since its inception in 1986. Lady Liberty is depicted wrapped in the 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. The image is borrowed from the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar designed by renowned American sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. For the first time ever in the series' history, the Type-2 Silver Eagle includes Mr. Weinman's distinctive "AW" monogram.
Reverse: The reverse features an exquisitely detailed eagle with an oak branch in its grip, preparing to land with its wings raised to slow its descent. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the "W" Mint mark. The Type-2 Eagle Landing design was created by Emily Damstra, science illustrator and U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist. In addition to numismatic designs, Ms. Damstra's work has appeared in publications and informational signage at museums, parks and zoos.
