With the release of the 2021 Proof Silver American Eagle, the United States Mint will mark its first-ever release of two design versions. The coins issued from the start of production in late 2020 until mid-2021 will come with the original Walking Liberty-Heraldic Eagle design combination. Starting in mid-2021, the new combination of Walking Liberty-Soaring Eagle will debut in the collection.
All of the 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles listed here come in perfect condition. The NGC issues a PF70 grade to coins that have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. Coins in this listing also come with two additional labels, one which is unique to proof coins and one that is issued to only a select few coins each year.
The UCAM label stands for ultra-cameo and refers to the beautiful visual finish on the coins. An ultra-cameo proof has strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The First Day of Issue label indicates a coin that was received by the NGC for grading within the first 24 hours of release by the US Mint.
On the obverse of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver Eagles is the image of Walking Liberty. The design of Walking Liberty was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman. This vision featured on the US Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947 and has been on the obverse of the Silver Eagle since 1986. It depicts Liberty walking toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse field of 2021-W 1 oz Proof Silver American Eagles depicts the heraldic eagle for the final time. The design comes from John Mercanti and depicts the eagle in front-facing relief as it supports the US national shield. The eagle clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace as a triangular cluster of 13 stars is depicted above its head.
