- The United States Mint (Mint) will accept orders for the redesigned 2021 American Eagle One Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin produced at the West Point Mint beginning on September 9 at noon EDT. Production of this coin is limited to 175,000 units, and orders are limited to three coins per household for the first 24 hours.
The American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin is the collector version of the official United States Mint American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin. Produced since 1986, this coin has been updated with a refreshed obverse (heads) and a completely redesigned reverse (tails) to mark the 35th anniversary of the American Eagle Coin Program.
Like its bullion counterpart, the obverse of the American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin features sculptor 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. Using technological advancements, the coin has been redesigned to encompass some of Weinman's original details, which renders a closer reflection of his original vision, including the addition of his traditional artist mark. Inscriptions are "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021."
The redesigned reverse was created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Emily Damstra
and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Michael Gaudioso. The design depicts an eagle as it approaches 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," and "ONE DOLLAR."
To provide an added level of security, the redesigned American Eagle Silver Coin also includes a reed pattern variation. The Mint benchmarked its efforts against anti-counterfeiting programs implemented by major mints around the world. Check out the 2021 W Uncirculated ASE on ebay
