2021 REVERSE PROOF AMERICAN SILVER EAGLE DESIGNER 2 COIN SET TYPE 1 & 2 , W & S
Introduced in 1986, the popular and iconic American Eagle Silver Proof Coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins. The classic Walking Liberty featured on the obverse has long been a collector favorite. After 35 years, this famous design has been refreshed, while the reverse features a completely new design.
The 2021 American Eagle One Ounce Silver Reverse Proof Two-Coin Set Designer Edition contains one original and one newly re-designed American Eagle One Ounce Silver Coin with stunning reverse proof finishes, a unique set for the serious collector.
The 2021 obverse original design features Adolph A. Weinman’s full-length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left.
The 2021 reverse original design features a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left.
Each coin with the original designs bears the “W” mint mark reflecting it’s striking at the West Point Mint.
The 2021 obverse new design features a refreshed depiction of Weinman’s Liberty. For the “refreshed” redesign, the United States Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Weinman’s original vision and detail.
The 2021 reverse new design features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest.
