Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2021-W Type-1 American Silver Eagle Reverse Proof coin?
The U.S. Mint has produced the American Silver Eagle since 1986. In tribute to the series' 35th Anniversary in 2021, the Mint has introduced a new reverse design partway through the year. In celebration of the transition, the Mint issued a limited mintage reverse proof set containing the original Type-1 heraldic eagle and the new Type-2 eagle landing silver dollar coins. This 2021-W Silver Eagle is the Type-1 coin from the set.
Spectacular Type-1 Silver Eagle Imagery
Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse carrying an oak and laurel bouquet, with an American flag draped around her walking figure. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." This timeless interpretation of Liberty is a revival of the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar design created by acclaimed early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle beneath thirteen stars, with an olive branch and bundle of arrows in its grip. Inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR," "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and the West Point Mint mark "W." The patriotic design is credited to sculptor John Mercanti, the currently retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.
