Silver Eagles are produced by the United States Mint at its West Point branch facility. Over the course of the coin’s 35-year history, the BU coins have been struck by three of the four branch facilities. The last time the Philadelphia Mint regularly issued the BU Silver Eagles was 2000, the second in a two-year release of the coins from Philadelphia. In 2020 and 2021, the Philadelphia Mint contributed emergency coining capacity to meet growing demand amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 2021 release of the Silver American Eagle is unique in a number of ways. First and foremost, the 2021 date mark is the official 35th anniversary of the series. It is also an important year as the US Mint is planning for a new reverse design to feature on the coins. However, to ensure continuity of availability, the US Mint started production of 2021-dated coins with the original design combinations before a mid-summer shutdown to turnaround dies for striking the new images. As a result, supplemental coining and emergency coining will occur at the San Francisco and Philadelphia Mints, respectively.
All of these 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver American Eagles are available to you in near-perfect condition. MS69 coins have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of those flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal fields of the coins. The included FDOI label stands for First Day of Issue and indicates the PCGS received the coins within 24 hours of the US Mint’s release.
On the obverse of 2021 (P) 1 oz Silver Eagles is an image known as Walking Liberty. Created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman, it depicts Liberty walking in left-profile relief toward the sun as it rises over a mountain peak. She carries the branches of oak and laurel while wearing the American flag draped around her figure.
The reverse field of 2021 (P) Silver American Eagles features the heraldic eagle. In its final year of use, the heraldic eagle captures a bald eagle in front-facing relief with its wings spread as it supports the US national shield. The eagle also clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.
