Why buy this Congratulations Set Type I 2021-W Proof American Silver Eagle?
This Proof Silver Eagle from the U.S. Mint's Congratulations Set is the perfect pat on the back for someone celebrating an achievement or milestone in 2021. The coin is a historic issue in that it is the final Proof release to bear the heraldic eagle reverse design of John Mercanti. That design will be replaced some time during 2021. This release is also part of the 35th anniversary issue of the Proof Silver Eagle.
Featuring for the Last Time John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle Design
Obverse: The obverse features a design that first appeared on Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty strides confidently in the morning sun as she carries laurel and oak branches. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed on this face, as are the date, "2021," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST." Adolph Weinman was a sculptor and numismatic designer. He is best known for designing the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime.
Reverse: The reverse bears the heraldic eagle design of John Mercanti, which he modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. Thirteen stars represent the original states at the top, while an eagle protects a union shield below. Rim inscriptions on this face read, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR." John Mercanti has designed more medals and coins than anyone else in American history. He spent nearly four decades with the US Mint, including time as its Chief Engraver.
Flawless PF70 UC FR with Black Core Holder and Exclusive Heraldic Eagle Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) set this coin in a black core holder and provided its grading information on an exclusive Heraldic Eagle label. NGC graded the coin Proof 70, thus indicating that it appears perfect even under 5x magnification. The grading company also credited the coin with having deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices by certifying it Ultra Cameo and for the fact that it was submitted for grading no more than 30 days after its initial mint release by certifying it First Releases.
