Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2021-W Type-2 American Silver Eagle Proof coin?

In the thirty-five years of issue since the U.S. Mint launched the American Silver Eagle series in 1986, there have been no major changes to the coin's design. That has changed in 2021, as the Mint has discontinued the iconic heraldic eagle (Type-1) image on the reverse, and replaced it with a dramatic lifelike portrayal of an Eagle Landing (Type-2).

  • The new Type-2 Eagle Landing reverse design is featured on this 2021-W American Silver Eagle proof coin.
  • The coin is a product of the West Point Mint, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin is minted with a reeded edge variation intended for counterfeit prevention.
  • The silver dollar is an authenticated First Day of Issue release.
  • The graded coin includes a certification label which was specially designed to accompany the 35th Anniversary release.

Magnificent Type-2 Silver Eagle Design

Obverse: The obverse portrays Lady Liberty enveloped in a billowing American flag, whilst walking towards the sunrise carrying a bouquet of oak and laurel branches, which are symbolic of strength, victory and honor. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." The powerfully patriotic image is modeled after the design created by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman for the U.S. circulating half dollar minted from 1916-1947. Although the personification of Liberty is unaltered for the Type-2 Silver Eagle design, there is one notable addition to the obverse composition. For the first time in the series' history, Mr. Weinman's "AW" monogram accompanies the image.

Reverse: On the reverse, the symbolic oak branch appears again, gripped in the talons of an eagle with its wings raised to slow its descent. The eagle is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "ONE DOLLAR," with the "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint hovering near its tail feathers. The design is credited to award-winning artist Emily Damstra, creator of multiple designs for the U.S. Mint, including the reverses of the 2019 River of No Return Wilderness and the 2020 Tallgrass Prairie America the Beautiful quarters.
