Why order this Congratulations Set 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle?
Congratulate someone special in your life with this Proof Silver Eagle released as part of the 2021 Congratulations Set. The set is issued by the United States Mint, and the coin was struck at the West Point branch. That mint is represented by its "W" mint mark. This coin is part of the 35th anniversary edition of the Proof Silver Eagle and is the final Proof release to include the heraldic eagle reverse design of John Mercanti.
Featuring the Classic Walking Liberty Design of Adolph Weinman
Obverse: On the obverse is the iconic Walking Liberty design that Adolph Weinman created for the 1916 half dollar. Draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap, Liberty carries laurel and oak branches while extending her right hand as if to greet the morning sun. Her name, "LIBERTY," arches over the image, while the date, "2021," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed on other parts of this face. Adolph Weinman is most famous for designing the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. His other work includes additional numismatic contributions, as well as numerous sculptures.
Reverse: Appearing for the final time on the coin's reverse is the original reverse design, which John Mercanti modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. Thirteen stars represent the original states above an eagle, which guards a union shield. Encircling the image are the inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti spent over three and a half decades with the US Mint, part of which he spent as its twelfth Chief Engraver. Over the course of his time there, he designed more medals and coins than anyone else in American history.
