2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle. The world's most popular bullion series underwent its first ever redesign mid-year, which means that collectors have the chance to own two type coins from the same year. This set provides those two coins, one of which is one of the final issues with John Mercanti's heraldic reverse design and the other of which is the debut of Emily Damstra's reverse design. The Type 2 coin also bears enhanced security features and, for the first time ever, Adolph Weinman's artist mark on the obverse.

  • Both coins in this set are $1 US legal tender.
  • The coins were each struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver.
  • The American Silver Eagle is popular around the world for its beauty and its U.S. government backing for weight and purity.
  • These coins are both part of the 35th anniversary celebration of the Silver Eagle.
  • Adolph Weinman's artist mark is added to the obverse on the Type 2 coin.
  • The Type 1 coin has John Mercanti's heraldic eagle reverse design, while the Type 2 piece has Emily Damstra's Landing Eagle design.
  • The new version has enhanced security features,

    Obverse: Both coins feature Adolph Weinman's Walking Liberty design on the obverse. The Type 2 version also has his artist mark. Liberty carries laurel and oak branches as the early morning sun shines on her. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed on this face, as are the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the date, "2021." Adolph Weinman designed two of the best known coins of the 20th century, the Walking Liberty Half Dollar and the Mercury Dime. In addition to these and other numismatic contributions, he also sculpted numerous works, some of which remain on display in various American cities.

    Reverse: The Type 1 coin has John Mercanti's original heraldic eagle reverse design. An adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States, it consists of thirteen stars and an eagle guarding a union shield. Emily Damstra's design, which is on the Type 2 coin, depicts an eagle preparing to land with an oak branch in its talons. Rim inscriptions on both coins note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the coin's face value, "ONE DOLLAR," and its metal content, "1 OZ. FINE SILVER." Also included on this face is the statutory motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
