From 1986 to 2021, the Silver Eagles from the United States Mint featured one of America’s oldest coin designs. Known as the heraldic eagle of the United States, this design was first created in 1794 by Robert Scot, 1st Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. Depicting a powerful bald eagle with the olive branch of peace and the arrows of war, this design has been replicated and modernized by countless US Mint designers.
In 2021, John Mercanti’s version of the heraldic eagle made its final appearance on the Silver Eagle coins after 35 years in production. In July 2021, the US Mint retired Mercanti’s design in favor of a new image of the bald eagle on the reverse. This new image comes from US Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Emily Damstra.
The obverse of 2021 1 oz Silver Eagle Type 2 Coins continues to feature Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty. This iconic 20th-century design was created in 1916 and featured on the US half dollar until 1947. It shows Liberty in left-profile relief as she pursues the sun on the horizon draped in the American flag and carrying branches of oak and laurel.
On the reverse of 2021 Silver American Eagle Type 2 Coins is a depiction of the American bald eagle. This new design shows the eagle in a slight three-quarter profile as it swoops into the design field with its wings flexed behind its figure and its talons clutching a large oak branch.
These 2021 1 oz Silver American Eagle Type 2 Coins are specially packaged by Silver.com. The coins are sealed in red presentation cards with a Christmas-themed design. The red field of the card includes decorative holly and has a printed greeting of Merry Christmas.
