The 2021 release schedule for the American Silver Eagles has been a groundbreaking one in the history of the series. For the first time ever, the US Mint overhauled one of the design elements on the coin, replacing John Mercantis original heraldic eagle design with a new bald eagle in flight as designed by Emily Damstra. In a year of firsts at the US Mint, you now have the chance to own another unique piece.

Each 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 1 Coin in this listing comes to you with a protective slab and a perfect certification. Mint State 70 coins are those that exhibit full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws of any kind. As the label in the slab notes, these unique specimens come from the very last day of production for Type 1 Silver Eagles at the United States Mint.
By June 2021, the US Mint began to wind down production of the original American Silver Eagle coin designs. On the final day of production, these 2021 American Silver Eagles rolled out of the coining presses. After these coins were struck, the US Mint underwent a pause in coining to swap out dies in its presses and begin production of the new American Silver Eagle with its all-new vision of the bald eagle on the reverse.
The obverse of these 2021 1 oz Silver Eagle Type 1 Coins is Walking Liberty. Designed by Adolph A. Weinman, this historic design shows Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon as it crests over a mountain peak.
On the reverse side of 2021 American Silver Eagle Type 1 Coins, you will find the original heraldic eagle design from John Mercanti. One of the final coins from the US Mint to feature this design in this series, the image shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief as it supports the US national shield. The eagle is clutching the arrows of war and olive branch of peace in its talons. There is also a triangular cluster of 13 stars over its head.
