The Silver American Eagle was soaring in the 21st century. Economic fears in the United States in 2001 had shifted from the impact of Y2K to the Dot-com burst in the tech sector, and the terror attacks of 9/11 late in the year. All these factors combined to make the 2001 Proof Silver American Eagle one of the highest mintage years in the program to date. Today, Silver.com offers the 2001-W Proof Silver American Eagle for purchase.

Coin Highlights:

  • Delivered in a commemorative box, and ships with a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Total proof mintage of 746,398 coins!
  • 15th Anniversary of the Silver American Eagle!
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
  • Issued a face value of $1 (USD) backed by the American government.
  • The obverse field shows Walking Liberty.
  • The reverse side presents the heraldic eagle.
  • Features the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint.

Mintage levels for the Silver American Eagle in the early 2000s were just starting to take off and reach new heights. After averaging a mintage of roughly 6.1 million each of the first five years of the program in the 1980s, the 1990s saw mintage levels much lower on average, hovering around 5.2 million annually.

Economic uncertainty and the damage done to the American psyche on 9/11 combined to rattle stock markets in 2001, resulting in level demand at a much higher mintage for the Silver American Eagle in 2001. After a total mintage of 9.8 million in 2000, the program saw mintage both drop (bullion) and increase (proof) in 2001.

Bullion coins dropped from 9.2 million in 2000 to 9.001 million in 2001. The 2001 Proof Silver American Eagle recorded the biggest single-year gains in proof mintage history. After striking 600,000 coins a year earlier, the mintage jumped in 2001 by 146,000 coins for a total of 746,398.

More importantly, this was the first year Proof Silver American Eagle coins were struck at the West Point Mint and featured the mint’s “W” mint mark. It was also the first year of bullion production at West Point, as both coins shifted there from the Philadelphia Mint. Both coins continue to be struck at West Point today.

Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty is still found on the obverse of all Silver Eagle coins. Liberty is seen draped in the American flag, holding oak branches, as she walks toward the sun.

The reverse of the 2001-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle Coins features John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle design. This design was seen on all Silver Eagles until the latter half of 2021.

2001-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle Coins arrive in a special commemorative box along with a Certificate of Authenticity, celebrating its 15th year in the series.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
