2021 American Silver Eagle T1 & T2 Set NGC MS70 MDS David J. Ryder Signatures

The year 2021 marks the most significant change to the American Silver Eagle series in thirty-five years, John Mercanti’s iconic heraldic eagle design that’s famous around the world has been replaced with a stunning new eagle landing design by Emily S. Damstra. Because of the design change, these coins have been dubbed Type 1 and Type 2 Silver Eagles. This set features a  final Type 1 coin and the first Type 2 coin. First and lasts in any coin series are always considered to be key dates. What’s unusual about this set of first and last coins is that both coins are dated 2021. That’s because of the global pandemic, it was never intended that two designs would be released in the same year with the same date! Both pieces are certified in flawless MS70 condition by NGC and individually hand-signed by David J. Ryder, 39th Director of the U.S. Mint. He is the person directly responsible for there being a Type 1 and Type 2 Silver Eagle, so positively, his signature adds exclusivity and value to these sets. David J. Ryder served as both 34th and 39th Director of the U.S. Mint and was named one of Coin World’s Most Influential People (1960-2020). Under his leadership, the mint issued many exciting modern coins including the most popular U.S. Mint releases of recent memory, the 75th Anniversary of World War II, Gold Eagle, Type 2 Silver Eagle, and Gold Eagle, as well as the 100th Anniversary Morgan and Peace Dollars.
