2013 Silver Eagle coins started the year with intense demand. The US Mint set a record for the highest one-day sales of Silver Eagle bullion coins on January 7th when selling for the year opened. A total of 3,937,000 coins were sold on that day alone, with the opening 10-day sales figure surpassing 6 million coins and forcing the US Mint to suspend sales for two weeks.
The 2013 release year also saw a unique 2013 Silver Eagle West Point Mint set of coins issued. The set celebrated the 75th anniversary of the building that houses the modern West Point Mint facility. It included a reverse proof Silver Eagle with “W” mintmark and an enhanced uncirculated Silver Eagle with a “W” mintmark.
On the obverse of 2013 1 oz Silver American Eagle bullion coins is the vision of Walking Liberty. Created by Adolph A. Weinman, this design captures Liberty’s appearance as she walks toward the sun on the horizon with the American flag draped over her shoulders.
The reverse of 2013 Silver Eagles features the oldest American coin design concept. The heraldic eagle of the United States was first created in 1794 by Robert Scot, the 1st Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. It has featured on various American coins throughout the nation’s history and was modernized for this series in 1986 by John Mercanti, the man who would become the 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint in 2006.
