The United States Mint will begin accepting orders for the 2021 Limited Edition Silver Proof Set–American Eagle Collection on October 1 at noon EDT. Production is limited to 50,000, with orders limited to one per household for the first 24 hours of sales.
This exquisite set includes the following six proof quality coins:
- One American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin – New Design, “S” mint mark
The obverse of this coin features a refreshed depiction of Adolph A. Weinman’s full-length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. For the 2021 coin, the Mint returned to its original historical assets to render a closer reflection of Weinman’s original vision that includes the addition of his traditional artist mark.
The new reverse depicts a single eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch as if to add it to a nest. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”
- One American Eagle One Ounce Silver Proof Coin – Classic Design, “W” mint mark
The obverse features Adolph A. Weinman’s original Walking Liberty design depicting the full-length figure of Liberty in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag, with her right hand extended and branches of laurel and oak in her left. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2021.” The reverse displays former Chief Engraver John Mercanti’s rendition of a heraldic eagle with shield, an olive branch in the right talon, and arrows in the left. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER – ONE DOLLAR.”
- One America the Beautiful Quarters Program Coin
The final quarter in this series honors the Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site in Alabama. The coin’s obverse depicts a restored 1932 portrait of George Washington by sculptor John Flanagan. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.” The reverse depicts a Tuskegee Airman pilot suiting up to join the fight during World War II with the Moton Field control tower in the background. The pilot looks upward with pride and confidence as two P-51 Mustangs pass overhead. The inscription “THEY FOUGHT TWO WARS” is arced across the top as a reference to the dual battles the Tuskegee Airmen fought—fascism abroad and racial discrimination at home. Inscriptions are “TUSKEGEE AIRMEN,” “ALABAMA,” “2021,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
- One Washington Crossing the Delaware Quarter
The obverse marks a return to the familiar depiction of George Washington by John Flanagan as it appeared on the quarter from 1932 to 1998. It was modified for the 50 State Quarters and America the Beautiful Quarters programs. In this depiction, Washington’s portrait is larger, with higher relief. Inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2021.” The reverse depicts General George Washington commanding his troops through the overnight crossing of the ice-choked Delaware River prior to the Battle of Trenton during the American Revolutionary War. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “CROSSING THE DELAWARE,” and “QUARTER DOLLAR.”
- One Kennedy half dollar
- One Roosevelt dime
The quarters, half dollar, and dime are struck in 99.9 percent silver. All coins are housed in a single lens and inserted in a black presentation case. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.

I got on the phone yesterday 11:40 calendar computer about 11:55 did not log in to the exact coin set up until one minute after 12 got through got it in my coin in my cart got kicked out I guess I got kicked out probably 10 or 15 times when out of the site start all over again added to my cart got it this time went back in the second time just to see if I could got in got it in my cart so I got 2 says on their website and the credit card I don’t know I wish they would do something with their site to make it easier it’s just so frustrating cuz you just never know if you’re going to be lucky enough to get one the only one of all these special coins this year the gold said I couldn’t get I had in my cart three different times and got booted out never did get back in can’t afford to buy it through the secondary Market people have a price so high but I understand why maybe next year they’ll do a little better job and figure out how to do this without creating so much chaos I’m glad I got what I got hopefully over the times are not selling coins their get their website figured out
I would love to have these Beauties. Unfortunately I can not purchase these beautiful coins.
Made certain my credit card was on file, watched the clock tick to 11:00 CT. Took about 10 minutes to get in and FINALLY got my order placed. Now just waiting to see how long it takes to get here.
I got kicked out at least 10 times. After about a half hour I finally got one. Let’s hope the new director fixes the ordering problems.
Got kicked 12 times by Card charging arm of website. It gets overloaded with the avalanche of orders. One reason why Mint Director had to go. Couldn’t fix important component of website for past 24 months. How much time do you need ? GAO, Internal affairs, Inspector General all said enough is enough.
Still happy with this set! Waiting on the 2022.
