For modern Proof Silver Eagle collectors, the S-Proof Silver Eagle from the San Francisco Mint has become an attractive option as it boasts lower mintages each year than its counterpart from the West Point Mint. There’s some history to the S-Proof Silver Eagle too as the US Mint originally produced all Proof Silver Eagles in San Francisco from 1986 to 1992. Now, certified 2021-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles are available to you for purchase online from Silver.com.

When the United States Mint debuted the Silver American Eagles in 1986, the San Francisco Mint was the site of production for both BU and Proof Silver Eagles. From 1986 to 1992, San Francisco produced the Proof Silver Eagle. From 1986 to 1998, San Francisco produced the BU Silver Eagle as well. Since 2006, San Francisco has issued new S-Proof Silver Eagles and a Reverse Proof in 2012. The only version of the Silver Eagle it has never struck is the Burnished Silver Eagle.
In 2021, the United States Mint celebrated the 35th anniversary of the series with the introduction of a new design element. The release schedule included Type 1 coins through the first half of the year with the original John Mercanti reverse, while Type 2 coins were released in July with the new design from Emily Damstra. While the BU and W-Proof Silver Eagles were issued in the Type 1 version, the S-Proof and Burnished Silver Eagles did not debut in 2021 until the release of the new Type 2 design.
The obverse of the 2021-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagle comes with the historic Walking Liberty design. This left-profile relief shows Liberty striding toward the sun as it rises over a mountain on the horizon. On the reverse of 2021-S Proof Silver Eagles is the new image of an American bald eagle in flight.
These 2021-S 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles are available to you in near-perfect condition. PR69 coins showcase full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detractions. Examples of acceptable flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that are located outside the primary focal points of the coin. The DCAM label indicates a specimen with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
