The re-designed American Eagle Silver Proof Coin has a new reverse (tails) depicting an eagle coming in for a landing, carrying an oak branch as if to add it to a nest. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," “2021,” and "ONE DOLLAR." It was designed by Artistic Infusion Program Designer Emily Damstra and sculpted by Medallic Artist Michael Gaudioso. The obverse (heads) features a refreshed depiction of 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. The United States Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Weinman’s original vision and includes the addition of his traditional artist mark. Inscriptions are "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021."
The classic American Eagle Silver Proof Coin reverse features a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," “2021,” and "ONE DOLLAR."
The George Washington Crossing the Delaware quarter reverse depicts Washington commanding his troops through the overnight crossing of the ice-choked Delaware River prior to the Battle of Trenton during the American Revolutionary War. Inscriptions are "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "CROSSING THE DELAWARE," and "QUARTER DOLLAR.” The obverse marks a return to the familiar, larger portrait of Washington by John Flanagan as it appeared on the quarter from 1932 to 1998. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2021.”
The Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site quarter is Alabama’s America the Beautiful Quarters Program coin, last in the 11-year series. The reverse depicts a Tuskegee Airman suiting up to join the fight during World War II, with the Moton Field control tower in the background. The pilot looks upward with pride and confidence as two P-51 Mustangs pass overhead. The inscription “THEY FOUGHT TWO WARS” is arced across the top as a reference to the dual battles the Tuskegee Airmen fought— fascism abroad and racial discrimination at home. Inscriptions are "TUSKEGEE AIRMEN," "ALABAMA," "2021," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
