When the United States Mint introduced the Silver American Eagle on November 24, 1986, there was a ceremonial first-strike ceremony at the San Francisco Mint branch facility. From 1986 to 1998, the San Francisco Mint provided the coining capacity required to meet the demand for the Silver Eagle.
In 1999, the Philadelphia Mint took over for two years before the coining of the Silver Eagle passed on to the West Point Mint. Since 2001, the West Point branch facility has been responsible for coining the Silver Eagle. However, in 2011, the San Francisco Mint was stood up again to provide supplemental coining. Specimens struck by the San Francisco Mint are only identifiable as such by the serial numbers and straps on the Monster Boxes the coins ship in from the mint.
On the obverse of these 2021 (S) 1 oz Silver American Eagles is the Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. Created in 1916, it shows Liberty walking in left-profile relief toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse of 2021 (S) Silver American Eagles features the heraldic eagle in its final release. Scheduled to be replaced midyear by a new eagle design for the 35th anniversary of the series, this is your last chance to own (S) Silver Eagles with the heraldic eagle image.
These 2021 (S) 1 oz Silver American Eagles are near-perfect specimens. A Mint State 69 coin showcases full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of those flaws include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines. Each of these flaws must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin. The assigning of a First Strike label is reserved for coins received for grading within 30 days of the initial release from the US Mint.
