Why purchase this First Day of Issue West Point Mint set of three perfectly graded Burnished 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-2 coins with signed labels?
The American Silver Eagle has been a product of the U.S. Mint since 1986. The Mint has instituted a design change to the series for the first time ever in 2021, retiring the classic heraldic eagle (Type-1) reverse design, and introducing a lifelike rendition of an eagle landing (Type-2). The three 2021 dated coins in this set represent the inaugural release of the Type-2 style Silver Eagle paired with a satin-like burnished (Uncirculated) finish.
Gorgeous Type-2 Silver Eagle Design
Obverse: The obverse features a personification of liberty as a young woman enveloped in an American flag. Lady Liberty is illustrated walking towards the rising sun carrying a bundle of oak and laurel branches. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "2021." This patriotic design first appeared on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin over a century ago, in 1916. The beautiful graphic has been struck upon the Silver Eagle since the introduction of the series. New to the Type-2 release is the inclusion of the "AW" monogram, giving credit to acclaimed early 20th century sculptor Adolph A. Weinman for the time-honored image.
Reverse: An eagle is depicted on the reverse, grasping an oak branch while lifting its wings to slow its descent. The eagle is surrounded by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "ONE DOLLAR" and the West Point Mint mark "W." The design was crafted by U.S. Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist and award-winning illustrator Emily Damstra. Ms. Damstra's dramatic eagle landing image was sculpted by medallic artist Michael Gaudioso, who has who has been a member of the U.S. Mint's team of sculptor/engravers since 2009.
