First issued in 1986 the American Silver Eagle has become far and away the most collected modern silver coin in the World! Now, after 35 years this classic and popular coin is being updated with an enhanced obverse design and a brand new reverse!
The classic Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman is still featured on the obverse of the Type 2 Silver Eagle. However, thanks to technological advancements in the design and minting process, Liberty now encompasses some of Weinman's original details that were not previously possible!
The new reverse was designed by the artist Emily Damstra and sculpted by U.S. Mint Engraver Michael Gaudioso. It features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to it's nest. Also included in the reverse design are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "E PLURIBUS UNUM", "1 OZ FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR".
This 2021 $1 Silver Eagle Type 2 Eagle Landing is struck from 1oz of .999 fine silver. Each coin is certified MS70 First Strike by NGC!
