Description

Why purchase this flawless 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-1 proof coin?

After thirty-five consecutive years of release with static imagery, the U.S. Mint introduced the Type-2 style American Silver Eagle in 2021. Prior to the new design launch, the Mint produced a final mintage of 2021-dated coins in the original Type-1 variety. The primary identifying element of the Type-1 style is the heraldic eagle image on the reverse, designed by John Mercanti, the Mint’s currently retired 12th Chief Engraver.

  • This 2021-W American Silver Eagle coin was struck at the West Point Mint.
  • The coin represents the final proof release of the Type-1 Silver Eagle with a “W” Mint mark. 
  • The 40.60 mm diameter coin is crafted from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin is a United States legal tender with a one-dollar face value.
  • The perfectly graded silver dollar earned the Early Releases attribution. 
  • The coin is one of only 327,335 minted.

Iconic Silver Eagle Imagery

Obverse: Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse, with an American flag gracefully draped about her walking form, while carrying a bouquet of oak and laurel branches. Inscribed “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2021.” This timeless depiction of Liberty was originally created for the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar by acclaimed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman.

Reverse: The reverse features a heraldic eagle with an olive branch and a bundle of arrows in its grip. Inscribed “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “ONE DOLLAR,” the Mint mark “W,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”

Proof 70 Excellence 

This 2021-W American Silver Eagle Type-1 proof coin was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) for review within thirty days of its release date. The coin was awarded the grade of Proof 70 for its perfectly executed strike, flawless surfaces, and magnificent eye appeal. The coin also received the Ultra Cameo (UC) designation, which describes the exceptional amount of contrast between its frosted and mirrored surfaces. The 1 oz. silver proof coin is presented in a sonically sealed NGC protective holder, with an Early Releases certification label.
