Why add this pristine First Day of Issue Burnished 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 coin to your collection of precious metal treasures?
In 2006, the U.S. Mint introduced the American Silver Eagle coin with a satiny burnished finish to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the series. To mark the 35-year anniversary of the American Silver Eagle series debut, in 2021 the Mint has introduced the Type-2 Silver Eagle, featuring a change to the reverse design for the first time. This 2021 dated coin combines the Type-2 style with the burnished finish.
Gorgeous Silver Eagle with the New Type-2 Imagery
Obverse: The obverse is graced with the allegorical figure of Liberty which has appeared on the Silver Eagle since its launch in 1986. Lady Liberty is depicted wrapped in the folds of an American flag, as she walks towards the rising sun carrying an oak and laurel branch bouquet. 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 prolific architectural and medallic sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. For the first time ever in the series' history, the Type-2 Silver Eagle credits Mr. Weinman's artistry, with the addition of his distinctive "AW" monogram.
Reverse: Centered on the reverse is a majestic 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, an award-winning science illustrator and U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist. In addition to numerous numismatic designs for the U.S. and Royal Canadian Mints, Ms. Damstra's work is featured in publications and informational signage at museums, parks and zoos.
