The American Silver Eagle Coin Series:
The Silver American Eagle is one of the most prolific and successful bullion programs produced by the United States Mint. Silver American Eagles are widely popular and highly collected coins today but their significance is rooted in more than just the sales. There is historical significance to this coin and it starts with the obverse of the Silver Eagle, designed by Adolph A. Weinman.
The American Silver Eagle Coin Series Design:
This design, introduced in 1986, was not the first time used in circulation. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design was introduced during a time in which American coinage beauty was lacking. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar was minted between 1916 and 1947. The design was an instant hit with the public as a reminder of American ideals, opportunity and patriotism. The American Eagle coin’s obverse design is 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. To understand the importance of the American Eagle coins is to understand the importance of its designer and design. The Silver Eagles have maintained the same design since their inception in 1986; however, the mint is expected to refresh the series with a new reverse mid-year 2021.
New 2021 Silver Eagle Coin Design:
In 2020, the United States Mint unveiled the new reverse designs for the 2021 American Eagle Silver coins. 2021 marks the 35th Anniversary of the American Eagle Coin program, and the new designs will begin appearing on these coins in mid-year 2021. AIP Designer Emily Damstra created the new Silver design, which was sculpted by Mint Medallic Artist Michael Gaudioso. The new design depicts a single eagle coming in for a landing, carrying an oak branch as if to add it to a nest.
IRA-Approved Silver Eagles:
In the midst of the various social, political, and financial factors that continuously impact today’s global economy, Silver holdings in an IRA can provide some financial reassurance and stability. Many view Silver as a more secure option for investment opportunities than stocks, bonds, or other forms of investments backed by paper. An IRA backed by Silver gives you the opportunity to invest in a physical commodity with a strong historic record as a store of value. The Silver American Eagle is IRA-Approved and widely available at US MINT.
