2021 American Silver Eagle (Type 2)
GEM Brilliant Uncirculated 2021 Silver Eagle (Type 2)
These gorgeous silver eagle coins are minted at West Point, Philadelphia, or San Francisco and contain one ounce of 0.999 pure silver. These are the "Type 2" 2021 silver eagles, which feature an all-new eagle reverse design - the first major design change to our beloved silver eagle in 35 years! As a result, the demand for these all new coins will be off-the-chart! These are legal tender silver dollar coins authorized by the United States government. Makes an excellent gift and keepsake!
The obverse features Adolph A. Weinman's classic Walking Liberty design - dating back to 1916 - with an ever hopeful Liberty striding confidently toward the sunrise, draped in the strength of the Stars and Stripes carrying in her arms branches of laurel and oak to symbolize both civil and military glory. The designer's initials "AW" were added just below the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST". The all-new reverse design, by artist Emily S. Damstra, features a larger stylized eagle coming in for a landing, carrying an oak branch, with the following inscriptions: "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "1 OZ. FINE SILVER", and "ONE DOLLAR".
These coins are the "regular bullion issue" and do not carry a "W" mintmark like the special burnished uncirculated issues or the special proof (mirror finish) issues. There is no mintmark on "regular issue" uncirculated silver eagles since the government produces these coins mainly as silver bullion for investors rather than coin collectors. However, the fact that the coin is one of the most beautiful coins ever minted has elevated it's status from a bullion coin to a highly sought after collectible.
