Monster boxes are an exciting and proud tradition within the bullion community. There’s no denying that these boxes are massive investments. But many collectors consider the potential upside of the investment to be well worth the money. Each monster box includes 500 different coins, all shipped in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. For the 2021 1 Oz American Silver Eagle Type 2, this means 500 ounces of .999 pure silver from the United States Mint. Because these coins come with the brand new 2021 redesign, collectors on all seven continents are gearing up to expand their collections with massive monster boxes of this classic bullion piece.
If you’ve been around the bullion community for any amount of time, you likely already know the important place that American Silver Eagle coins occupy. These coins were first minted on November 24th of 1986, and they have been distributed annually since then. The first edition of the coins persisted until this year, where they will be replaced with the Type 2 design. The difference applies exclusively to the reverse side of the coins. The original design included an American Bald Eagle in a pose similar to the one used on the U.S. quarter-dollar. The 2021 Type 2 edition depicts the same eagle flying and carrying an olive branch.

Let’s start with the obverse. On the frontside of these intricate silver coins, onlookers are greeted with the familiar figure of Lady Liberty. Depicted here in her walking pose, she struts forward, gesturing proudly into the distance as the sun sets in the background. She holds a bundle of olive branches, a symbol which invokes the American commitment to peace and serenity. The phrases found on most American coins, “In God We Trust” and “Liberty,” are also featured on the obverse of the piece. The year 2021 is highlighted at the bottom of the coin.
The reverse, however, is where the new redesign comes in. “The United States of America,” as well as the weight, purity, face value, and material of the coin are inscribed on the reverse side of the American Eagle Type 2. The centerpiece design of this side of the coin is a flying American Bald Eagle. He carries a single olive branch in his mighty claws and appears to be coming in for a landing. This is a departure from the original design of the coin, which highlighted a stationary eagle holding a bundle of arrows and an olive branch alike.
Since the new American Silver Eagle is getting a new design in 2021, there has never been a more perfect time to invest in a monster box of the world’s most recognizable pure silver coin. Packed with 500 ounces of .999 pure silver struck into the brilliant designs of a Bald Eagle and Walking Lady Liberty, the 2021 1 Oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 Monster Box is equal parts collectable and investable.
