Walking Liberty graces the obverse of the coin, while the heraldic eagle is featured on the reverse. In 2021, the US Mint marked the 35th anniversary of the series with the introduction of a brand-new reverse design element that will permanently replace the heraldic eagle reverse. Before that happened, the US Mint issued 2021 Silver Eagle Type 1 Coins with the heraldic eagle design one final time.

Designed by John Mercanti, it features a front-facing bald eagle supporting the US national shield. The eagle clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace, with a triangular cluster of 13 stars overhead.
