The United States Mint announced its intentions to change the reverse design elements of two of its most important coins in October 2019. The mint announced that the existing bald eagle designs on the reverse of the Silver Eagle and Gold Eagle would be changed for the 2021 release of the coins as this date mark represents the 35th anniversary of the series.
Emily Damstra’s art was chosen from a field of more than 30 submissions to be the new bald eagle design for the coins. A resident of Michigan, Ms. Damstra has extensive experience working with both the Royal Canadian Mint and the United States Mint on other wildlife-themed releases.
The obverse of the 2021 1 oz Proof Silver Eagle Type 2 Coin features the historic Walking Liberty design. Created by Adolph A. Weinman, it shows the figure of Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon.
On the reverse side of 2021 Proof Silver American Eagle Type 2s is the new bald eagle design. Ms. Damstra’s depiction showcases the power of the bird in flight as its massive wings are stretched out and its talons reach down beneath its frame to clutch an oak branch.
