The Silver American Eagles issued in 2021 came in more than just several different versions, it came with more than one design combination. The anticipated refresh of the reverse design didn’t debut until midyear, meaning the early 2021 Silver Eagles were released with the original reverse design element. Now, 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver American Eagles are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com in perfect condition.
The United States Mint had announced plans in late 2019 to refresh the visual elements of the Silver American Eagle and Gold American Eagle. It was decided that each coin would get a new reverse image of the bald eagle. However, the intense demand for gold and silver throughout 2020 and into 2021, along with delays associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, shifted the US Mint’s timeline on the redesign.
When the 2021 production cycle began for Silver Eagles, the US Mint struck the coins with the original heraldic eagle on the reverse side. As a result, the 2021 Silver Eagle comes in Type 1 and Type 2 releases, with the former consisting of Walking Liberty and the Heraldic Eagle, while the latter has Walking Liberty and the new bald eagle reverse.
The obverse of these 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver American Eagles features Walking Liberty. This left-profile image of her figure was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and used on the US half dollar from 1916 to 1947.
On the reverse of 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver Eagles is the heraldic eagle. Designed by John Mercanti in 1986, this is the final time the design features on these coins. It depicts the bald eagle in front-facing relief as it supports the US national shield.
