The Rarest Proof Set of 2021: The Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof Set!
The United States Mint Proof sets are some of the most popular sets released annually, and over the last few years they have really kicked them up a notch! The collector-favorite 2019 and 2020 Proof and Mint sets both featured special ‘W’ mint coins that were added as special additions to the sets (2019 had the Lincoln Cents, 2020 had the Jefferson Nickels). This year, the U.S. Mint has decided to one-up themselves again – the 2021 Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof set is the first set in U.S. Mint history to features TWO different silver eagles in the same set!
Not only is this 2021 Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof set the rarest Proof Set released by the U.S. Mint every year – it also contains one 2021 Type 1 and One 2021 Type 2 Proof Silver Eagle!
This special Limited Edition Silver Eagle proof set is the first – and likely last – of its kind!
A true Collecting Rarity – 5 ½ Times Rarer than the 2021 Silver Proof Set!
These 2021 Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof Sets had a maximum allowed mintage of just 50,000 sets – making it not only the rarest proof set released in 2021, but one of the rarest U.S. Mint releases of the year outright!
Just compare their numbers with a collector favorite, the 2021 Silver Proof set!
Total number of 2021 Limited Edition Sets: 48,529 VS. 267,247 Regular Silver Proof sets
That is right, these Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof Sets are more than 5 1/2 times rarer!
Mintage numbers are from the U.S. Mint Website as of 12/16/2021
The First Limited Edition Silver Proof set with TWO Silver Eagles!
The American Silver Eagle has had the same design since it was first struck in 1986, so when the U.S. Mint announced last year that they would be changing the design for the first time ever – the world took notice!
The coins in this new 2021 Limited Edition Silver Eagle Proof set features two Silver Eagles that are the first and last of their kind, making the must-have proof set of the next decade! Firsts & Lasts always hold a special place in any collection--let alone one as long running and prestigious as the American Silver Eagle program!
The 2021 ‘Type 1’ Silver Eagles feature the iconic design we all know and love while the 2021 ‘Type 2’ Silver Eagle will have a brand-new reverse design! This new design features an incredibly detailed bald eagle, a bird synonymous with freedom, with an oak branch, symbolizing the strength of our nation, clutched between its talons as it descends to land in its nest! The obverse of the coin features an updated and enhanced version of the original Adolph A. Weinman rendition of our very own Lady Liberty as she strides forward enveloped in the folds of the American Flag!
