The Proof American Silver Eagle is one of the world’s most beautiful coins, both in terms of its visual finish and its design elements. Since the 1986 debut of the series, the American Silver Eagle has featured Walking Liberty on the obverse and the heraldic eagle on the reverse. 2021 is the last time you can purchase this design combination as the US Mint has a new reverse bald eagle design available for release by mid-year.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the American Eagle Series in 2021, the United States Mint has new American bald eagle designs to replace the existing reverse designs on both the Silver Eagle and the Gold Eagle. However, the 2021 release starts with the original design combinations for both coins before a mid-year transition to the new designs on the reverse.
All of these 2021-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagle Coins have PR69 certifications from the PCGS. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws present. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and limited in scope to the areas outside the primary focal points of the coin.
Also available with these 2021 Proof Silver Eagles are labels identifying the specimens as deep-cameo, First Strike pieces. Deep-cameo, or DCAM, is issued only for proof coins and points to the existence of strong, frosted strikes over deeply-mirrored, clear fields. First Strike indicates the coins were received by the PCGS within the first 30 days of release by the US Mint.
On the obverse of 2021-W 1 oz Proof American Silver Eagles is Walking Liberty. This visual depiction of Lady Liberty was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman for the US Mint and used on the US half dollar until 1947.
The reverse field of 2021 Proof American Silver Eagle Coins has the heraldic eagle of the United States. The official emblem of the federal government, the heraldic eagle has been modified several times in US history. This version was modernized by John Mercanti for this series in 1986.
