An American Icon, Struck in Silver and Layered with Ruthenium and Gold!
When we released our first Silver Eagles clad in Black Ruthenium and 24 karat gold, collectors went wild and asked for more. So, we delivered! Here you can secure a 2021 U.S. Silver Eagle clad in a combination of Black Ruthenium and 24-karat gold. Each is still official U.S. legal tender and a full ounce of 99.9% fine silver — just with a little touching up for even more eye appeal.
You’ll love how this variation gives the famous Walking Liberty and Heraldic Eagle designs an extra layer of contrast against the fields of the coin. Each clad Silver Eagle comes housed in an acrylic capsule and set into a black felt display box. Your friends, family and fellow collectors won’t be able to keep themselves from staring and asking questions. It also makes a fantastic gift!
WEINMAN’S LIBERTY WALKS WHILE MERCANTI’S EAGLE SOARS! – Gracing the United States half dollar from 1916 to 1947, Adolph A. Weinman’s lyrical Walking Liberty made a triumphant return for the Silver Eagle’s debut in 1986, holding her feature role on the coin's obverse ever since. Opposite Lady Liberty on the Silver Eagle’s reverse is the coin’s namesake Heraldic Eagle, designed by acclaimed (and highly prolific) coin designer John Mercanti.
STRUCK IN HIGHLY PURE SILVER . . .— Each of these incredible coins was struck in an ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver and measures 40.6 mm in diameter.
. . . WITH DETAILS GILDED IN 24 KARAT GOLD . . . – After these Silver Eagles left the U.S. Mint, a team of independent craftspeople carefully took each coin and expertly applied a selective layer of luminous 24 Karat gold to each side. The result lustrously emphasizes the key elements of both Weinman’s and Mercanti’s designs while preserving the intricate details that make each creation an American classic. But that’s not the only addition to this masterpiece!
. . . CROWNED BY SLEEK RUTHENIUM! – The rest of this 2021 Silver Eagle is coated with a layer of jet-black ruthenium. Using this scarce transition metal from the platinum family has become one of the hottest trends in high-end jewelry, and its smooth surface and dark sheen perfectly complement both the radiance of this Silver Eagle’s gold as well as its time-honored design.
UNITED STATES LEGAL TENDER – Each 2021 Gilded Silver Eagle coin is still one dollar United States of America legal tender — not that you’d want to spend these works of art!
