2021 American Silver Eagle – Rises Afresh
The United States Mint released an update regarding the production schedule of the brand new 2021 reverse designs of both the gold and silver American Eagle programs. This announced design change is altogether unprecedented, as the American Silver Eagle has proudly born the original design since its introduction 35 years ago, in 1986. The release is currently expected to begin Summer 2021. This has resulted in two different reverse designs issued with the 2021 date. The first is a release of the current design, bearing the 2021 date (designated, Type 1). Then, when Type 2 production is ready to ship, they will be issued through the established channels.
Lady Liberty – Graceful, Proud, Strong
Recognized worldwide as one of the most stunning designs in bullion coins, Lady Liberty gracefully, yet proudly represents freedom. She steps into a bright future, draped with a flowing U.S. flag. Looking toward the rising sun, she recalls that this freedom was won at a great cost. In her left arm she cradles branches of oak and laurel. These symbolize the glory of her people, their strength, and unstoppable resolve. Lady Liberty also extends her right hand in peace unto the Nations of the world.
The Eagle Arriving
The brand new reverse design continues to feature a bold image of the iconic bald eagle. The stunning new reverse was designed by highly acclaimed artist, Emily Damstra, best known for her work with the Royal Canadian Mint. Her design was selected from among a number of submissions for proposed reverse designs. The submissions were judged by an expert panel known as the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC).
The new 2021 1oz American Silver Eagle BU (Type 2) design depicts an incredibly detailed bald eagle with its powerful wings spread high as it descends with an oak branch in its talons, as though to add the branch to its nest. Although, we have held in highest esteem the original eagle and shield design, moving forward with a more natural-styled image of the eagle was a fine option. This is particularly so as the eagle is displayed in such fine detail. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA . E PLURIBUS UNUM . 1 OZ FINE SILVER . ONE DOLLAR."

When first released in 1986, the American Silver Eagle was the only official U.S. investment-grade silver bullion coin. Additionally, the Silver Eagle was also the only 1 oz silver bullion coin with weight, content, and purity guaranteed by the United States government. The American Silver Eagle powerfully soared in popularity worldwide from its very beginning. Across the globe, investors in official government-issued investment grade silver bullion coins continue to choose the American Eagle first. This remarkably striking coin is also a must-have among precious metal bullion investors and collectors of fine silver coins.
The obverse of the Silver Eagle coins depicts the Walking Liberty design created by Adolph A. Weinman. This was previously displayed on the Half Dollar coins issued from 1916 to 1947. This Walking Liberty image on the Silver Eagle coin is one of the most cherished and well-known designs ever to grace U.S. silver coins. The reverse of the American Silver Eagle coins is just as impressive as the obverse, featuring an American eagle, the very symbol of our nation's freedom, patriotism and national pride.
This 2021 1oz American Silver Eagle BU (Type 2) release continues to bear this high standard proudly into the future!
