2021 American Eagles
In 2021, the first American Silver Eagle (ASE) was issued as part of the American Eagle bullion program. The first silver eagles were issued on November 24, 1986, and they quickly became very popular among investors and coin collectors alike.
This famous silver bullion coin has Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design on its obverse, which was previously seen only on U.S. half dollars from 1916 to 1947. It has now been pulled out of retirement to appear on 2021 American Eagles. Mercanti’s stylized heraldic eagle appears on the coin’s reverse.

Although ASE production was relatively conservative in the first decade, the West Point Mint produced a limited number of proofs for the 10th anniversary gold eagle set in 1995, with conventional bullion grade (formerly known as “uncirculated”) and ASEs made annually, only 30,125 of the 1995-W silver eagles were minted as a complimentary extra with the anniversary set. Collectors flocked to them in droves, and they remain a sought-after regular-issue key date to this day.
While in the early twenty-first century, the reverse proof and burnished finish of the ASE coins have been produced. The Philadelphia Mint was initially tasked with striking bullion-quality coins, while early proofs were provided by the San Francisco Mint. In the 1990s, the Philadelphia Mint struck proofs for a while, but by 2000, the West Point Mint was handling the overwhelming bulk of ASE production, thus the minting responsibilities have changed over time.
