Millions of American Silver Eagles are shipped from the United States Mint each year. It isn’t hard to imagine the incredible popularity of these coins, given the vast quantity that are distributed each year. Why does the American silver eagle remain one of the most coveted yearly releases from the American government mint? The answer has to do with both reputation and aesthetics. The coin comes with the backing and reputation of the United States Mint, which has become one of the leading distributors of silver coins in the world. Some of the most renowned mint artists available work closely with the U.S. Mint to help design its most famous coins.
The American Silver Eagle also features an incredible set of images that appeal to a wide swathe of bullion coin collectors. The obverse is decorated with a walking portrait of Lady Liberty, who proudly strides toward a rising (or setting) sun. She wears a gown, which is blown gracefully in the wind. The American symbol of liberty and freedom also carries a bundle of branches. For this particular coin, the real magic happens on the reverse side. The 2021 American Silver Eagle 3-Coin Set MS70 offers one of the last opportunities for investors to access the Type-1 Silver Eagle design. Starting later this year, the U.S. Mint will be releasing an all new design for the reverse of the classic coin.
- One coin each from: Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point.
- Last chance to buy the Type-1 design!
- Obverse Depiction: Lady Liberty walks toward a rising sun.
- Reverse Depiction: The American heraldic eagle is featured.
As with all coins from the United States Mint, each of these coins carries an individual face value of one dollar. This places the total face value of this 3-coin set at $3, although only a foolish collector would ever consider parting with these pieces for only a few dollars. The 2021 American Silver Eagle 3-Coin Set MS70 comes shipped in top Mint Standard condition, and we take every precaution to ensure that your coins arrive in their original brilliant condition.
The obverse of these coins will remain the same, even after the new Type-2 design is released and distributed. Lady Liberty carries a bundle of sticks and walks toward a setting sun, her gown flowing beautifully in the wind. The reverse is where the new design change is anticipated. The original design of the American Silver Eagle has been used for decades. It features the American heraldic eagle, which is the same design used on the American President’s seal.
The new design on this reverse-side is actually truer to the original vision of the designer, who imagined the eagle flying in its natural habitat. This new depiction shows the eagle flying through the air and coming in for a landing.
This three-coin set is the last chance for the average bullion collector to access this design before it is overhauled for the new reverse-side depictions of the Type-2 coins. Celebrate the history and legacy of the American Silver Eagle with this 3-Coin Set in MS70 Condition.
