There are precious few coins with the kind of global appeal and appreciation that the American Silver Eagle possesses and the 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 is no exception. The coin’s classic iconography invokes the American Bald Eagle, national bird of the United States. This coin is annually released by the United States Mint, and its newest design is already drawing attention from collectors all over the world. Hero Bullion is proud to offer this 2021 1 Oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.


As always, we ship this coin in perfect condition and take every precaution to avoid any kind of scuffing or blemishes on your new coin.  Both sides of the 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle are intricately detailed and meant to highlight key aspects of the American identity. The name of the piece comes from the single bald eagle that decorates it. He flies majestically and carries an olive branch, which is a classic symbol of peace and serenity.


The Type 2 edition of the American Silver Eagle pays homage to the original design, which included a stationary Bald Eagle resembling the American Presidential seal. In the original design, the eagle carried a bundle of arrows in one claw and the olive branch in the other. The Type 2 version of the coin symbolically endorses peace over war, rather than depicting them as two sides of the same national identity.


Key Features:

  • 1 Oz .999 pure silver. 
  • Face value of $1 USD backed by the United States government.
  • Obverse Depiction: Lady Liberty walks in front of a setting sun. 
  • Reverse Depiction: A Bald Eagle flies carrying an olive branch.
  • Multiples of 20 coins arrive in original US Mint tubes. Multiples of 500 coins arrive in mint strapped Monster Boxes 
  • Recommended Supplies: 40mm Air-Tite Capsule, Capsule Tube, US Mint Silver Eagle Tube


The American Silver Eagle coin has an extensive history, both inside the U.S. and around the world. Along with the Canadian Maple and select other coins, the Silver Eagle remains one of the most coveted coins in the bullion community. The coin featured the same design for many decades, and it is only in 2021 that the 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 version is being officially released by the U.S. Mint. The old design depicted the Bald Eagle as it is featured in the Presidential seal. The design was pitched and drafted by Emily Damstra. Her interest was in depicting the eagle in a natural state, flying through the air and preparing for a landing. 


This new design makes the 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 an especially fascinating piece. Collectors have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor in what will likely be an exciting annual release from the American Mint. The obverse side of the coin’s design has remained static over the past few decades. Lady Liberty dons her classic flowing gown and gestures proudly forward in front of a setting sun. The phrase “In God We Trust,” as well as the date and an inscription of “Liberty” also decorate this side of the coin. 


As the U.S. Mint transitions into a new design for the classic American Silver Eagle with the release of the 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2, we hope you will take part in this exciting new yearly release by buying with Hero Bullion.

    I’ve heard some discontent over the new design change on the silver and gold eagles..although I still prefer the original silver eagle reverse, the new design is still kinda cool..im really just happy the US mint switched things up a bit and tried something new, but yeah I like em’ and will be adding some more to my humble stack..and as for the new gold type 2 eagles, I love the new reverse design and much prefer the new design to the old (type 1) gold eagles…I’ve always never liked the old gold eagle design
