Each of the 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles available here at Silver.com comes with perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in PF70 condition exhibit full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind present on the design elements. These coins also come with Ultra-Cameo and Early Release labels. The UCAM label is reserved for proof coins with strong, frosted design elements that contrast against deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The contrast between the two is so strong that the design appears to float above the field of the coins.
The included Early Release designation indicates when the coins were received by the NGC for certification. In this case, the coins were received by the NGC from the United States Mint within the first 30-day window following release.
The obverse side of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles depicts Walking Liberty. Her effigy is shown in left-profile relief as she walks from the right side of the coin’s design field toward the sun on the left as it crests the peak of a mountain. The American flag is draped around her figure in this design.
On the reverse field of the 2021-W Proof Silver American Eagles is the heraldic eagle of the United States, a design available for the final time. Modified for the Silver Eagles in 1986 by John Mercanti, this design shows the bald eagle in front-facing relief as it clutches the olive branch of peace and the arrows of war. The US national shield is on its chest and a triangular cluster of 13 stars is depicted overhead.
