Each of the 2021 (P) 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins listed here comes with a near-perfect certification from the NGC. The Mint State 69 certification indicates a coin that exhibits full, original mint luster and no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines that must be located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
The additional First Day of Issue label included within the slab indicates the timing of arrival of the coins for certification. The FDOI label means the coins were received by the NGC within 24 hours of release from the United States Mint.
The obverse of 2021 (P) American Silver Eagle Coins features the image of Walking Liberty. Adolph A. Weinman created this image of Liberty in 1916 for the US Mint to consider on circulation coins, with the design chosen for the US half dollar. The left-profile image of Liberty captures her figure walking from right to left toward the sun on the horizon near a mountain. She is reaching out toward the sun as she carries the branches of oak and laurel with the American flag draped around her figure.
On the reverse side of the 2021 (P) Silver Eagle Coins, you will find the heraldic eagle design. In use for the final time on the coin, the image captures the eagle in front-facing relief with its wings spread out all the way to the side as it supports the US national shield. The eagle clutches the branches of oak and laurel in its talons.
The Philadelphia Mint last issued BU American Silver Eagles in 1999 and 2000. In early 2020, the US Mint turned to the Philadelphia Mint for emergency coining assistance during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the pandemic continued into 2021 and demand for the Silver Eagle persisted, the Philadelphia Mint again issued an emergency release of the coins.
