Why add this perfectly graded First Day of Issue 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle Type-2 coin to your collection?
The American Silver Eagle has been an annual product of the U.S. Mint since 1986. This exciting 2021 release of the series represents the first modification to the Silver Eagle's design in its thirty-five years of issue. While the time-honored rendition of Lady Liberty will remain unchanged on the obverse, the heraldic eagle (Type-1) reverse will be retired. Launch of the Type-2 Silver Eagle includes a new Eagle Landing graphic on the reverse, anti-counterfeit measures, and for the first time in the history of the series, design credit for the historic obverse design.
Breathtakingly Beautiful Silver Eagle Type-2 Design
Obverse: The obverse features the American flag-wrapped form of Lady Liberty gracefully walking towards the sunrise. She cradles a bouquet of oak and laurel branches in the crook of her left arm, while reaching forward in a welcoming gesture with her right. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2021" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This patriotic design by acclaimed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. Mr. Weinman's integrated "AW" initials are located beneath the motto.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a realistically rendered eagle with a branch of oak in its grip, as it lifts its wings in preparation for landing. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "ONE DOLLAR," along with the "W" Mint mark of the West Point Mint. The image is an example of the nature themed artistry of award-winning illustrator Emily Damstra, a member of the U.S. Mint's Artistic Infusion Program since 2014.
