The 2021 release of Silver American Eagles at the United States Mint already includes a variety of coins issued by mints other than the West Point Mint. All BU Silver Eagles are produced to look identical regardless of the mint that strikes the coins, and as such, there are no mint marks present on BU coins. However, it is possible to identify the coins the San Francisco Mint and Philadelphia Mint have contributed to the supply chain in 2020 and 2021.

All three mints that have issued 2021 Silver Eagles to this point have previously issued the coins or currently issue the coins. The San Francisco Mint has been providing regular, supplemental coining as needed since 2011. San Francisco was the original hub for coining of the BU Silver Eagles from 1986 to 1998. The West Point Mint has been the hub of production for the BU Silver Eagles since 2001.
In 1999 and 2000, the Philadelphia Mint issued the BU Silver Eagles. Since that time, it has only contributed to the production of the occasional specialized coin, such as a reverse proof specimen in one series or another. In 2020, with the need for more coins and reduced staffing capacity at the West Point Mint, the Philadelphia Mint began to issue emergency releases of the coin. This has continued into 2021. Although no mint marks are used, the coins are known to originate in Philadelphia as a result of the serial numbers on the Monster Boxes the US Mint ships the coins in.
The obverse of 2021 (P) Silver American Eagles features a depiction of Liberty. The Walking Liberty effigy was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman and formerly used on the half dollar circulation coin until 1947.
On the reverse field 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver Eagles is the heraldic eagle. Scheduled to be replaced by mid-2021 with a new, revived American bald eagle design, the heraldic eagle has graced the coins from 1986 to 2021.
These 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver American Eagles are available at Silver.com in perfect condition. Mint State 70 coins showcase full, original mint luster and present with no flaws of any kind. The First Day of Issue label means the coins were received by the NGC for certification within 24 hours of the US Mint releasing the coins.
