The United States Mint revealed the new reverse design of the American Silver Eagle coin on October 1, 2020. Although the original plan was to begin production in the beginning of 2021, circumstances surrounding the pandemic severely limited the U.S. Mint's capacity to produce coins. As a result, they had to continue with the old design well into 2021 and the bullion coin with the new design is scheduled to be released in July 2021 to the Mints authorized distributors.

The new reverse design of the Silver Eagle is a fresh approach to an exemplary coin and a much-loved design. The reverse still features a bald eagle. The bald eagle is about to land from a flight. The eagle grasps an oak branch between its claws, perhaps to build its nest. The words "United States of America" "One Dollar" "1OZ. Fine Silver" and "E Pluribus Unum" are placed along the outside edge of the coin design split between the wings of the eagle. This reverse design was crafted by Emily Damstra, a member of the Mint’s Artistic Infusion Program (AIP), and was sculpted by Mint artist Michael Gaudioso.

Artist Jennie Norris designed the Gold Eagle reverse design. For this, the design represents a closeup profile of the bald eagle's head facing left, surrounded by statutory inscriptions above it for United States Of America, E Pluribus Unum, and In God We Trust. These letterings are separated by three stars on either side of the eagle. Below them emerges "5 Dollars" and "1/10 O.Z. Fine Gold". The eagle has a fierce gaze, and the design is exhibited in such detail that its beak and dense plumage look very realistic. She could portray such a stunning design because of her experience as a former raptor handler and her detailed up-close study of birds. She has stated that "I hope to capture the intensity of his stare through the close cropping" of the design.

Collectors world-wide eagerly anticipated the release of this new design. The American Silver & Gold Eagles have been a staple in the numismatic community and a benchmark for all other coin designs since their inception. This redesign truly does mark the end of an era, as well as the completion of one of the most historic coin programs the U.S. Mint has ever produced. We can't wait to see what they have in store for these new type 2 designs. With emerging coin technologies, new finishes like the enhanced reverse proof and iconic anniversary sets the type 2 will set a new standard in the numismatic community!

These are the very first coins released in this series and we have them certified PERFECT MS70 by ANACS in First Strike. Due to the incredible popularity of these coins they won't last long so get yours before they are all gone!
