The End of an Era Congratulations Set: 2021's Final Heraldic Reverse Silver Eagle Collection
2021 was the final year the United States Mint would strike the Proof Silver Eagle with the original 'Heraldic Eagle' design we have grown to love. Thanks to the new 2022 design change, these ends of an era 2021 Proof Silver Eagles have become must-own pieces in the Silver Eagle series – but they were not the rarest Proof Silver Eagles released in 2021.
That special status is held by the Proof Silver Eagles from the special 2021 Congratulations Set that the U.S. Mint struck at the West Point Mint. These ‘Secret’ Proof Silver Eagles have been struck since 2017 and are easily one of the most sought-after coins in the series thanks to their historically low mintages.
After finding a small group of these hard-to-find collections at a coin show, we can finally bring back the 2021 Congratulations Set and its incredibly rare Proof Silver Eagle!
2021's Congratulations Set – The End of An Era at the U.S. Mint
The U.S. Mint Congratulations Set was first released in 2013 and was designed to be a special collection you could gift to friends and family to commemorate an occasion – from birthdays, to graduations, to anniversaries... these sets are the PERFECT gift.
Proof Silver Eagles included in this set have been struck at both the West Point and San Francisco Mints over the last decade – with the special Congratulations Set Proof Silver Eagle often being the rarest Proof Silver Eagle released by the U.S. Mint that year.
2021’s Congratulations Set features a West Point Mint Proof Silver Eagle like the 2013 to 2016 sets, but it holds the special status of being the final set created with the original silver eagle design.
This makes the 2021 Congratulations Set a must-have piece of U.S. Mint history and automatically making it one of the most important sets in the series.
2021’s Congratulation Set has a mintage of just 39,997 total sets – making it one of the rarest Silver Eagles ever made!
But don't take our word for it -- take a look at the other special issue Silver Eagles released in 2021 by the U.S. Mint:
