The U.S. Mint is excited to announce the 2021 release of their American Silver Eagle bullion coin's new design. As the official silver bullion coin of the United States, the coin was first introduced into the market in 1986 after the 1985 Liberty Coin Act approved its mintage. With a demand-based production, the coveted coin has skyrocketed in popularity among investors and collectors in the past decade.
After 35 years, this famous design has been refreshed. Thanks to technological advancements in the design and minting process, Liberty now encompasses some of Weinman’s original details that were not previously possible.
The 2021 American Silver Eagle (Type 2) bullion coin is comprised of one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver and contains a .07% addition of copper to increase the coin’s resilience. It has a face value of US$1 and is government-backed legal tender. Both the U.S. Mint and the U.S. government guarantee the purity, weight, and content of the IRA-eligible American Silver Eagle bullion coin.
The obverse (heads) features a refreshed depiction of 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. For the 2021 coin, the United States Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Weinman’s original vision that includes the addition of his traditional artist mark.
The new reverse (tails) design features an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," and "ONE DOLLAR."
The American Silver Eagle is 40.6 mm in diameter and 2.98 mm thick.
