Why purchase this impeccably graded First Day of Issue 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 Proof coin?
This mid-year release from the U.S. Mint represents the beginning of a new era for the American Silver Eagle series. After thirty-five years of consistent imagery, the reverse Type-1 heraldic eagle design has been retired. The Type-2 Silver Eagle showcases a newly rendered, realistic interpretation of an Eagle Landing, paired with enhanced security features.
Gorgeous Patriotically Themed Type-2 Designs
Obverse: The Silver Eagle's obverse image remains unaltered, depicting Lady Liberty walking towards the rising sun elegantly draped in an American flag. She carries branches of oak and laurel, which are traditional emblems of strength, honor and triumph. Inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "2021" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." This rendition of Liberty, created by renowned early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman, is borrowed from the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916. The only change to the obverse is the appearance of the artist's initials "AW," for the first time in the series' thirty-five year history.
Reverse: The reverse is adorned with an image of the national bird of the U.S. with its wings raised in preparation for landing. The eagle clutches a branch of oak, which is a symbol for wisdom, strength and endurance. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR" and the West Point Mint mark "W." The Type-2 Eagle Landing image was designed by science and nature illustrator Emily Damstra. Ms. Damstra has created multiple coinage designs for the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints, as well as stamps focused on endangered species for the United Nations Postal Administration.
