Please note that the US Mint recently added black tape to the top of 2021 Silver Eagle Type 2 tubes. This tape has been shown to break with ease from even minor vibrations, such as the motion Monster Boxes experience during shipping. As a result, you may receive tubes of 20 coins on which this tape is broken. JM Bullion is taking the added step of applying our own tape as well to ensure the tubes remain secure during shipping.
The new American Silver Eagle Type 2 coins are available from the United States Mint with a stirring new image of the American bald eagle.

The US Mint introduces a new design element on its American Eagle coins for the first time ever in 2021. The obverse and reverse of the silver and gold coins in this series have remained the same since 1986 when the respective collections launched. Now, 2021 coins issued on the 35th anniversary of the series will feature new reverse designs for the first time, with each coin getting its own distinct design.
All 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 Tubes come with a total of 20 coins inside. The acrylic tube contains 1 oz silver coins with .999 pure silver per coin for a total of 20 Troy oz of pure silver with a combined face value of $20 (USD). The acrylic tube holds coins from the 2021 American Silver Eagle Type 2 release, with each coin inside boasting Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
On the obverse side of 2021 American Silver Eagle Type 2 coins in this tube is the Walking Liberty design. In use in this series since 1986, this iconic design is more than 100 years old and was created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. The image features Liberty in left-profile relief as she walks toward the sun on the horizon with the American flag draped around her figure. For the Type 2 release, the US Mint has enhanced Walking Liberty to capture her image as Weinman originally intended, while also adding Weinman’s artistic signature mark with his “AW” initials beneath “In God We Trust.”
The reverse face of the 2021 Silver Eagle Type 2 coins features the new American bald eagle design from Emily Damstra. This work of art captures a more life-like glimpse at America’s national symbol. The bald eagle swoops into view clutching a large oak branch in its talons.
Emily Damstra’s design was chosen from among some 35 different designs submitted to the US Mint for consideration to replace the heraldic eagle. Ms. Damstra has extensive experience as a member of the US Mint Artistic Infusion Program and has previously completed two different reverse designs in the ATB Silver Serie.
