The American Silver Eagle is ready with a new design element on the reverse of the coins for the first time in the program’s history. Announced in late 2019 and finally approved in 2020, the new reverse design debuts in mid-2021 with a more realistic image of the bald eagle to replace the heraldic eagle design. Now, 2022 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 Monster Boxes are available to you for purchase online from Gold Club Direct.
The United States Mint planned reverse designs for the American Silver Eagle and American Gold Eagle for a mid-2021 release. The time has come for the new designs to arrive on the coins and marks the first-ever change to the classic designs found on both coins. John Mercantis heraldic eagle depiction appeared on the 2021 Silver Eagles through midyear and is now being replaced after 35 years with a design from Emily Damstra.
A member of the United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program, Damstra has extensive experience working on wildlife designs for two of the world’s biggest sovereign mints. In addition to creating two designs for the reverse of America the Beautiful Series in 2019 and 2020, Ms. Damstra has also created images for the Canadian Wildlife and Canadian Birds of Prey Series from the Royal Canadian Mint.
Walking Liberty is found on the obverse of 2022 American Silver Eagle Type 2 Coins in this Monster Box. The image of Liberty featured here was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and featured on the US half dollar from 1916 to 1947. The design comes with a depiction of Liberty in left-profile relief walking toward the sun on the horizon. The image of Walking Liberty featured here has been enhanced for 2021 to showcase the design as Weinman originally intended, including his signature artist’s mark with his “AW” initials.
An American bald eagle is shown soaring through the design field on the reverse of 2021 Silver Eagle Type 2 Coins. Damstra captures the natural splendor of an eagle in flight with the addition of an oak branch in its talons. She chose the oak branch as it is the national tree of the United States and a symbol of strength.
