Redesigned 2021-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle Launch

144

The United States Mint 2021-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle should sell out soon after launching today at Noon ET.

2021-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle
The 2021-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle features a refreshed obverse (heads side) and a completely new reverse design (tails side)

This coin is struck as a collector-grade version of the U.S. Mint’s program of American Eagle silver bullion coins. Uncirculated editions actually debuted in 2006, succeeding the bullion program by twenty years.

This year’s coin has more going for it than perhaps all past issues, including a refreshed obverse, a brand new reverse, an edge variation, and a stated production limit of 175,000.

For reference, very early sales of some older issues reached: 100,499 (2020); 82,784 (2019); 89,482 (2018); 111,224 (2017); 134,925 (2016); 127,872 (2015); 106,349 (2014); 104,570 (2013); and 123,801 (2012). The 2011-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle eclipsed those numbers at 184,967 in its first four days owing to pent-up demand following a two-year program hiatus.

American Silver Eagle Designs

As they have since their introduction, obverses (heads side) of American Silver Eagles bear Adolph A. Weinman’s extremely popular "Walking Liberty" design which originated on the 1916-1947 half-dollars.

For 2021, the U.S. Mint refreshed the design by utilizing historical assets to more closely resemble the original artist’s work. It also added Weinman’s unique artist mark. Obverse inscriptions include "LIBERTY," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and "2021."

Emily Damstra created and Michael Gaudioso sculpted the new reverse design. It depicts an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest.

Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER," "ONE DOLLAR", the artists’ initials, and "W" which indicates the coin’s production at the West Point Mint.

Another new addition is a reed pattern variation on coin edges to assist in combating fakes.

I have 2 enrollments for 2 each, and both have been confirmed, I did the math and there are 30,652 orders confirmed when subtracting my 2 orders. Therefore an estimated 31,000 to 93,000 or more silver eagles may already be off the board before the 12 noon order process starts. The enrollment program is great.

Daniel,

Now that’s a commercial I could watch several times and still find it to be funny as hell! That poor dog falling into the john…bugger! We here in the US have some of the dumbest commercials you can imagine. Another reason why I love the DVR.

Larry T

JWP,

i also have 2 enrollments placed on this issue for a total of 12 little beauties coming my way! Both orders confirmed, and charged to my CC, on this good morning. I’ll be watching the feeding frenzy from the bleachers!

Dave

Just got my confirmation too – a stress free day

Larry T

Dave,

Congratulations on your purchase! A ‘stress free day’ is well earned this year. Let’s enjoy it while we can because you know what day is coming up.

Victor

Did I see it correctly that the household limit is 25 coins if you are enrolled in the program?

Uncle Sams Nephew

I agree that the coming investigation of the US Mint’s sales practices should reveal “suspected” questionable practices. But I’m not going to be surprised if they state:

“Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, we are unable to reach that judgment. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the US Mint committed a crime, it also does not exonerate them.”

But in view of the rights of “We The People who collect coins”, I wonder if the Freedom of Information laws could demand that this Advanced Buyers King Midas Club can be exposed. 

Carl

Here we go AGAIN. Just as happened with my enrollments for the new reverse of the 2021-W and 2021-S, my enrollment for the 2021-W unc wasn’t filled even though I received an email to confirm that my information was correct. So I’ll be there at noon today to hopefully get 1 coin. I feel like Charlie Brown playing football with the US Mint, hopefully I’ll kick it.

Larry T

Carl,

On the ‘My Products Enrollments’ page of the Mints website there should be a checked ‘active’ box next to each of your enrollments. I’m assuming it is checked and was just curious what response the Mint gave you for not fulfilling your enrollments. Sorry for your frustrating circumstance!

Ron Patton

They filled all coins that I chose. Took awhile to receive tho.

Richard Margolis

My enrollment for 3 coins worked. Status is shipped. This is the quickest response I ever had from the mint

Mike Hunt

Carl —
The same thing happened to me. But since I had not received an order confirmation before the official release time, I looked on the site and found that somehow the enrollment had been removed!
After at least 10 tries at ordering, I removed my order (very risky) and started all over again. After another couple of attempts it was confirmed. AS of 9:17 Pacific Time it still shows you can order it, albeit on “back order”.
Very frustrating and disconcerting.
—Mike

Big T

sounds like something is wrong with your credit card. that has happened to me in the past with another product enrollment. Unfortunately, if this is the case it will be “back of the line” for you. Order quickly!

Carl

It was marked active 2 days ago. I have found that the ones that you can speak to in customer service can really tell you nothing of how this happens and unfortunately they are the only ones to call about anything. Very frustrating to say the least. Somehow I doubt I’m the only one having this problem with enrollments.

Carl

I have 12 enrollments and the only ones that there has been a problem with are for the silver American Eagles. I like the enrollment program for convenience and the free shipping on all purchases in the loyalty program.

Larry T

Kaiser,

That’s precisely why I didn’t touch my enrollment amounts (either up or down) for fear it would nullify everything. By the way, just to test the Mint, I placed an order for 3 additional 2021 W Unc ASE’s and it went through! I already have 12 confirmed coins coming by way of the enrollment and want to see if they catch and cancel this order. Any thoughts on why the coins are still on ‘Backorder?’

Antonio

I suppose all who ordered today started out with Backorder. I’ve received my confirmation email and will wait for the product to arrive, after all, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.

Phil

Kaiser,

I’m not sure if the status report you refer to is with regard to enrollments only or not. But, I’ve mentioned on here before that my order history (I’m not in enrollments) has several orders listed as processing that I’ve received long ago. I put 0 stock into what I see as order status on the site.

Phil

Maybe it’s my phone, lol. My Liberty Horse Coin is listed as processing right now while it’s in the palm of my hand. & that’s 1 of several. Some from yrs ago. I dunno, but you may see why I care not what their status says. Haa

Phil

Kaiser,

There’s a niche that’s into art on the head of a pin. Maybe something similar with a coin that size?

Now, imagine the interest if it’s mass was a Troy oz…

HugoRossBoss

The new 2021 Eagle design resemble the old 1950 American Airlines Logo

Antonio

I see you’re not the only one who noticed that.

Big T

interesting observation. Personally I am not a big fan of the new design. I really like the new gold eagle reverse, however.

Larry T

Kaiser,

Don’t ever apologize for having good taste and lots of hard earned wisdom.You are astute in describing the pizzazz as ‘authentic.’ Those posters were art and still are sought after by many today, at some hefty price tags! Same for old signs with a company’s brand/logo. Everything today appears to be computer generated…Ugh!

sam tweedy

Can that “BIRD” fly with that “TURKEY” leg for a wing !!! Don’t forget to tell the U S Mint you are “HUMAN” sorry page not found, try again try again try again!!!!

Dave

I found that if you turn off tracking protection & disable any adblocker programs (using FireFox) in your browser you won’t get that “HUMAN” BS

Larry T

Kaiser,

I guess he really, really, really.really wants to make a point! LOL

Paul

Got the email at 12:58 this morning that my order for 2 coins via the enrollment program is confirmed.

Paul

Thanks, I just wish I had enrollments for the proof SAEs.

Greg Oberg

How are you able to enroll in the Silver Dollar eagle plans? Each time I try it said it’s not available. I would like to get enrolled for future years instead of having to try at noon on the release date.
Thanks

Daniel

All this palaver over a coin which isn’t a proof.

sam tweedy

Some people will just buy anything, like ugly “BAT” quarters, But then again this coin can be displayed on the mantle with them !!!! Lol>>>>>

Daniel

LOL!
That’s brilliant

Larry T

Kaiser,

I love that design of the fruit bats and it looks spectacular on a 5 oz. plate of silver! You must’ve collected a rare variety of the coin as mine didn’t come with the ‘face mask!’

Big T

I actually prefer the uncirculated (ie. barnished?) finish myself.

Antonio

Yeah, is this one barnished (or is it burnished) or uncirculated? I thought barnished is uncirculated with a mint mark.

Antonio

I definitely notice the difference between an uncirculated coin bought from the Mint and one I get from circulation. I prefer a roll of uncirculated coins than one I receive from the Mint. Shiny is better than dull in my eyes.

Antonio

Yes, but I prefer the circulation uncirculated over the mint set uncirculated. Some of the older coins are fabulous to look at.

Daniel

If you are in the right place at the right time, sometimes you can jag both. When I was 14 I started in working what the US calls an off-track betting agency. As a kid with a penchant for collecting coins, it was a godsend. A high volume cash handling environment, where I could replace the coins in my pocket, with better examples as they came underneath the glass pane from the customer base. Whilst it might differ with my own moral compass, gambling (especially on horses) is unfortunately part of the Australian story … and a 14 year old… Read more »

Larry T

Daniel, Thanks for sharing that story with us. I thought you were a smart IT individual based on those videos of your buying setup, but am even more impressed that you had such a discerning eye at age 14! I got the coin bug as a young boy attending a Catholic school. I was an alter boy and was responsible for collecting the coins and bills from the parishioners. Back in the 60’s you would find a lot of silver coins in the basket, so when I served in Mass, I always made sure to have a couple dollars with… Read more »

JWP

I’ve always thought about making change from the offering plate as it was past through the aisles at church but I guess I just wasn’t fast enough. LOL

Antonio

I remember. My dad had the coins. I kept the Buffalo nickels and Mercury dimes, which I still have. The Standing Liberty quarters were so worn, they had no date. I only was given three by my dad and remember spending one on a 1907 Indian Head cent out of a coin vending machine. I suppose that was a good trade. I’ve also kept all the Wheaties I ever found, since the ’60s. Never came across half dollars except for the Kennedy ones. Then when we moved to Canada, I kept all the silver George VI coins I came across… Read more »

Daniel

The float had to balance at the end of each shift. Any discrepancy was mine alone. My worst was when a customer did a scam on me and I ended up $3,100 short at the end of the shift. Not a good day, and I had to replace it immediately the next day. My shift ended at 10:30pm … I rang the boss at 11:00pm and told him. He came to the store and I remember wondering why he seemed so panicked. I was the one feeling bad, and my gut was churning that I had to withdraw all of… Read more »

Daniel,

Sounds like the making of a ‘Mr.Inbetween’ episode.One that ends with Ray parking his car in some remote wooded area and he gets out of his car with a shovel in his hand and…

Daniel

You probably won’t see this reply, but I am very intrigued by the Mr Inbetween reference. As someone with a shaved head, an inappropriate moustache and have been told in the workplace that I made a female colleague feel uneasy because I seemed “creepy”, Ray is a bit of a reflection on my own life. The fact that the show is also filmed in Sydney around areas I am familiar with, it is also fun to play “spoto” when watching it, as it is interesting seeing your backyard on the big/small screen. I am just surprised an American knew of… Read more »

Larry T

Daniel, Believe it or not, but Mr. Inbetween is a popular show here. I’ve been following it for several years now as it is interesting to see how life in your country is visualized. I heard that the series has been terminated, as the lead actor is moving on to other projects. That’s a shame since I enjoyed watching Ray wasting all those ‘bad guys!’ Thanks for the movie recommendation, I’ll do a google search and hopefully I’ll find one. By the way, did you secure one (or a few?) of those Reverse Proof Designer Sets? I believe most of… Read more »

JWP

I just click on the coin and at 12 noon it was listed as BACK ORDER! WHATS UP/ dID THE ENROLLMENTS EAT UP THE 175,000 UNITS BEFORE 12 NOON?

Victor

Did you place an order anyway? You better hurry up or back order will be gone too.

erv

Same here. I noticed that the back order ship date was December 14th. Hopefully it will be here by Christmas.

Victor

Never mind. I see you have signed up for enrollment.

Antonio

MS68 vs MS70 coins. : P

Antonio

The dealers/advance buyers get the higher graded coins and the rest of us get the lower graded ones. At least ordering from the Mint, I don’t pay the full price being asked, sometimes.

Victor

I tried 7 time and on the 8th my order went through for 3.

Are enrollments still available?

FViia

Wow, that was a very different experience. Kept telling me I was no good, verify human, verify human, nope you are no good pal… then I switched to my phone to login and my cart was -0-, then my phone chimed that there was a CC charge and a receipt was showing in the website. Crazy !!!

Antonio

I had to resubmit my order three times but it did go through. Now I only wait for a confirmation email. It did say backorder but that may be the process the Mint is employing now. I hesitated for a couple of seconds and got to submitting my order anyway. So now I wait and see if the Mint didn’t oversell to subscribers and favorite dealers.

FViia

Just got confirmation email.

FViia

Yes. They have now reached out and touched me for potential feedback. Anyone else get an email for potential input?

Antonio

Well, I got my confirmation email about an hour and a half after I got acceptance of my order. I’m still waiting on my W ASE Type 2 proof. Have received my S already.

Antonio

Says it’s on backorder.

harryg

Hi folks. I just ordered 2 and it was confirmed by the mint. Not without some troubles however where it takes you in circles such as back to the order page to submit the order again and “page not found” etc. but it did eventually go through. I was nervous about getting any at all due to all the folks that were pre registered which I did not do.

harryg

Good advice, I am learning as I go because I am very new to this. Thanks.

No problems at all. Completed my purchase in 15 seconds. Wow.. Back ordered but , WOW.. Still available at 12:12..

Finbar Higgins

In stock date December 14th.. What’s up with that?

Victor

It’s corona time.

Victor

I look at it this way. I don’t think they have problem minting coins, heck they made records minting this year. You go to the bank and they short on coins. The distribution is the problem because of shutdowns and shortage of workers. All this buy-now-ship-later, much later, is going to be very difficult to fulfill due to new impediment in the form of vaccines mandate recently announced by Biden.

Instantly on back order 1 second past 12 noon so it let me purchase it anyway & when i got to part 4 confirm purchase i got a page that said ,can’t find the page your looking for. I don’t care its not a special coin anyway .Will get an sp70 for 30 bucks more in a month or so.170,000 is not rare

gary

These are not the droids your looking for so i am not obi one can obi and i tried again at 12:15 and got thru and got confirmation this time

gary

Now its 12:30 and pinehurst just offered me 95.00 for the coin how about that

Victor

When do they get them in hand?

Coinman

Kaiser,
My astute friend, I respectfully feel a need to correct you again; the name is Mike “Not Enough Coins” Mezack.

Larry T

Kaiser,

I know your are just guessing, but I’d say that was a very intelligent guess to make. I’d think the cheapest you’d get a MS70 for would be around $120 and that’s assuming they don’t mint an extra 100K coins! I can’t figure out why the coin is still listed as Backorder when the limit is set at 175,000. I think they’ll end up minting more than that, the only question is ‘how many more?’

Dave

MCM has MS69 for pre order @$125-130 Range

Daniel

I’m thinking this “Launch with a status of Back order” is not going to end well. People should temper their excitement.

it is still available to claim … though I have two orders for different households, with order numbers so far apart, it would indicate that the entire allotment has been claimed several times over.

erv

There is not a mintage limit for this coin, just a product limit. It would not surprise me if they kept it on back order and will offer a different packaging for those that still want it once the 175,000 product limit is reached.

Big T

I wonder if this is because this will be one of the two ASEs contained in the limited mint set coming this year. I assumed they would both be proof but maybe not.

RAV

The limited edition silver set costs $235 and contains a W mint type 1 proof and a S mint type 2 proof, both of which have already been released.

Antonio

Whoohoo! I just saved $235! \O/

Antonio

I have my eyes on the reverse proofs. I prefer that set, also, not as expensive.

harryg

I read right on the site that the limit for this very coin (W) was 175,000. Mintage limit none. Product limit 175,000. Can someone clarify?

Last edited 2 months ago by harryg
harryg

Thank you very much for that very clear explanation. I try to assist in editing a coin swapping catalog and I must have very precise explanations and language in order to have my submissions admitted to the catalog as gospel. I will submit 175,000 for this particular Eagle. Your explanation really helps in that effort.

Scarecrow

harryg & Kaiser, Or, the limits sometimes don’t apply as commented a couple of times before in other articles. For instance, the type 2 ASE W caused a lot of consternation to us. The US Mint had no mintage limit and a production limit of 300,000. Who would have thought that the mint would exceed their 300,000 limit or that bulk purchases have their OWN product number. So 2142 lots of 40 coins bulk purchases were also sold and did not count against the 300,000 in the “product limit”. In total as of Sept 5, 396,161 ASE W type 2… Read more »

Thank you for that feedback. I happened to notice that detail while trying to edit the swap catalog about the proof W and was confused about it so I canceled my edit attempt on that particular coin for that very reason. We are still attempting to figure out how to and whether to categorize and distinguish those kinds of details as separate or ignore it altogether and just lump them together. Still in the discussion phase. Thanks again.

Larry T

Kaiser,

I know that and you obviously know that I, but does the US Mint know that? By the way, I just got notification that one of my orders for this coin has been shipped.

Larry T

Kaiser,

Let’s just hope and pray the Coin Gods favor us one more time (on Monday 12 noon) and my year of coin collecting will be a hugh success.I see that the 2021 W Unc ASE has finally gone to ‘Remind Me’ status! I do hope you are correct about the mintage limit.

Victor

Agree! I bought many coins but have yet to receive 1.

Victor

Honestly, with such a rush to order before the coins run out I did not payed attention to when I will get them. I’m talking about Eagles, Morgans, and Peace. I certainly did no expect to get them 1/2 a year later.

Carl

Success! Got 1 on 6th attempt to checkout.

TiredOfIdiots

After half a dozen of the stupid “page not found” errors got my order in about 10 after.

Big T

Despite being unable to get the two previous ‘proof’ versions (and no, I am not on the enrollment because it is and has been sold out for this year) due to the usual ‘prove your a human’ and other internet issues all previously described, I was able to log on and (nearly) seamlessly purchase one my first successful ASE this year! It was, however, on ‘back order’ but that is better than “remind me” that has so often been the case this year. Next up: the double set RP coming next week (does your enrollment plan cover that one, boys… Read more »

TiredOfIdiots

I imagine the double RPs are going to have a whole lot more demand (resulting in stupid web site failures and ‘prove you’re human’) than we saw today. But I’ll be there with you on Monday trying.

Larry T

Big T

I think you mean your ‘Ag’ 1921 Peace Dollar. Au is Gold on the Periodic Chart. Of course if you do actually have a gold 1921 Peace Dollar, them you did hit the jackpot!

erv

I think he is conveying that the coins appears uncirculated to his eye, which is the AU condition. But they came back as mint state, MS. He is not referring to the metal content.

Big T

Ah but not so fast grasshopper, does your privileged VIP ‘enrollment plan’, saved only for the highest most of the clearly entitled, include the upcoming 2 coin reverse proof ASE set for next week? Will you be so chipper on the day? Smoke them while you got em today, because the US Mint will be working you hard next week my dear (German?) friend!

Rich

Same here Sir Kaiser, enrollments fulfilled smoothly and even the online ordering is hassle-free for this coin today. As of 12:40pm ET, at the time of this writing, it is still available to purchase online (thanks to the HHL of 3).

FViia

Any guesses as to what happened? Found an extra tote of silver blanks in the warehouse? Someone F’d the website? Trying to get ahead of the bad press for next week? Math error? Delta?

RogerF

Never received a confirmation on my enrollment for the burnished ASE so I went online and backordered another one. My enrollment was still marked active from when I turned in on several months ago.Maybe missed the window for this year?

I also noticed the status of my mint set enrollment was turned off so I turned it back on. Not sure what was up with that but the page looks redesigned since I last checked (checkbox instead of slider button?).

Rich

Still available for back-order purchase online at 2:30pm ET, 2.5 hours past launch time. Apparently the 2021 ASE Type 2 uncirculated, burnished finish coin is not experiencing as high of demand as the 2021 ASE Type 2 & Type 1 proofs, even with a lower sale price and product limit.

FViia

Maybe one of the approved Bulk Purchase Program members is no longer approved (due to violation of rules). That would be welcome news.

FViia

I am going to reply to myself on this. Hope I do not get banned, but take a look here, maybe the USMint has this all figured out? Maybe the new normal is backorder until they can vet the purchase, based on previous purchases? I remember suggesting this in a letter to the USMint after the 19XE fiasco. Consider me right if 1 second after Noon on Monday next week everything is backorder.

https://www.coinworld.com/news/us-coins/mint-officials-identify-scope-of-bots-in-online-sales

Antonio

Or maybe buyers prefer proof coins over uncirculated ones. Just a thought.

FViia

OK, Maybe. 80-94% Uncirculated vs San Francisco:

19EG (UNC) 138,139
19EM (S) 146,735
20EG (UNC) 154,281
20EM (S) 191,365

Phil

I’m def surprised it’s still available on backorder compared to how quickly the others became unavailable. I was expecting another ordering process taking at at least 15-20 mins. I got in & out in about 2 mins, which was nice.

But, not letting my guard down. Preparing for war Mon. Lol

Rich

Sir Kaiser, thank you for the clarification on the “back order” status. For what its worth, here are the US Mint’s definitions of “back order, currently unavailable, and sold out: What do Back Order, Currently Unavailable, and Sold Out mean? Back Order: When products are in “Back Order” status, this means that the product is available for sale, however there is no inventory in stock and a future ship date is displayed on our website. Products in this status can still be ordered online or through the Customer Contact Center. Currently Unavailable: Currently Unavailable products have no remaining inventory in… Read more »

Rich

You are most certainly welcome, Sir Kaiser. And many thanks for all your contributions in support of the greater CoinsNews.net community.

Carl

In my opinion all this stuff about bots, which is probably true, the REAL cause of higher demand and ‘shortage’ of silver is largely because of the introduction of the new reverse design mid year which is a lack of planning by the US mint. Look at the numbers from prior years and again in a couple future years and there will be a spike for 2021. I’ll be watching.

Larry T

Jeff,

All of us that have confirmed orders placed for the various Morgans and Peace Dollars have them currently listed as ‘Backordered.’ I wouldn’t worry about them. These 2021 W Unc SAE’s on ‘Backorder’, I’m not too sure! It does seem the Mint likes to throw us curve balls just for the fun of it.

Larry T

Kaiser,

You have a way with words..’The Mint is an acquired taste’ is simply true and hilarious at the same time. You should be writing for some of those late night talk shows. I hear they could use some humor injected into their monologues!

Coinman

Once again, you nailed it Kaiser! Bravo!!

Victor

Wow! Still available as of 3:50pm ET. Something not right at US Mint website.

Rich

Victor, it could be a case of less hype and less demand for this one from the dealers and customers.

Phil

Kaiser,

For this escapade, I put coins in my cart at 1200+cpl secs already in backorder. Got confirm cpl mins ltr. We’ll see if I get something.

I’m not sure I’ll get any silver I’ve ordered. Have lots of confirmations, lol

Only coins I’ve received this year are gold. & I’m aware of the silver delivery debacle of ’21

Antonio

I have my confirmation for the W uncirculated. My CC has been charged. All I wait for is the shipping notification. IF I receive my Proof W, that’ll make a set. So far, the Mint has that one on back order, although I’ve received a confirmation for it.

Mammoth

I decided to sit out this US Mint ordering sh*t-show.
Congrats to all of the collectors who snagged one of these coins today.

Antonio

I’ll look forward to the reverse proofs next Monday.

Rich

I hear you mighty Mammoth.

Thanks for the shout-out, Rich.
If there are any females on here – I hope they like my curves.

HAHA, had to check that one for a second. Don’t see it used that often.

Confirmation @12:13am / shipping notice with tracking number @ 2:14 this afternoon.

Victor

I have not received a single coin I ordered this year.

Daniel

6+ hours later, still available to back order.
It’s like this is a really poor attempt by a marketing department to avoid criticism on social media.

RogerF

Sure looks like there was no reason to cut off enrollments earlier in the year on this ASE.

domenic

I was in no mood this morning…i hopped on the website at 6pm pacific tonite…still available for backorder…..so i ordered one.

RAV

Still available for back order at 11:00 P.M. Perhaps not as popular as we thought?

Daniel

I would be very interested to hear what your order confirmation number is. Although don’t post the full number here. If I have learnt anything from life it is “Don’t trust people not to be pricks”. There is the potential that I know of orders for multiple households. In fact, I can say with certainty, that I have seen order confirmation numbers which were for orders placed minutes apart, yet were 42,000 unique order numbers in between. Whilst not every order would have been for 3 coins, a lot would have been. So I can confirm that in a three… Read more »

Domenic Vaiasicca

If the order number is based on piece count….. It would be in the 11 million range.

As Larry T pointed out below his order number was 2,604,957 after his enrollment. I was saying if the order numbers are based on actual coins….then mine would be in the 11 million range when i ordered it at 6pm that evening.WOW this is going to be a fun PR nightmare for the mint unl;ess they have decided to breach the mintage limit. If that order number is the true case of coins ordered….then they REALLY blew it.

Steve

just tried to order an extra 5 pieces right at noon. No limit after 24 hours. Sold out in seconds, they probably went to the chosen few automatically. It never changes!

Antonio

Good to know. This one didn’t sell as well as the 3 previous proofs. Monday will be interesting but then again it’s only 1 per customer.

Kaiser,

What Steve was referring to is the coin went to ‘Remind Me’ status immediately after the HHL was removed (after the 1st 24 hours.)

Larry T

Kaiser, Probably because it didn’t go to ’Remind Me’ within 25 minutes, as the last three did. Antonio, like a lot of us, expected a sell out quickly. We do seem to place value and desirability on these coins strictly based upon how quickly they sell out. I think it’s entirely possible that this coin did sell out almost immediately.That is, of course, only my opinion. Heck, even our messiah Mike Mezack opined this coin would sell out in two minutes! And honestly Kaiser, what I’m still trying to wrap my head around, is the whole ‘Backorder’ label. I believe… Read more »

I believe a lot of individuals who think they’ve secured an order for the 2021 W Unc ASE will be vastly disappointed. I have two enrollment orders shipped my way and I put an extra order in just to see what would happen. The extra order has been confirmed and shows as ‘processing?’, but the difference from the last enrollment order# and this extra order# is 2,604,957 orders! That extra order was for 3 additional coins and it was placed about 15 minutes after the coins went on sale. Either the Kaiser is incorrect about the ‘Product Limit’ not being… Read more »

Kaiser,

I’m in agreement with your assessment of this offering. One final morsel for you to ponder…is it possible the Mint was just preparing us for the Monday Noon Event?

My order from 12:06PM on 9/9 still says processing. No email saying confirmed.

This is a gorgeous coin struck by the US MINT ever in the modern era

Mike Petraitis

I have a subscription for these coins.I checked my e mail one day and it says they are being processed then they send me an e mail says they have been shipped. I check the tracking number through USPS they say a label has been created but not shipped. The US mint charged my credit card tells me they have been shipped which is not true .I n the past years I never had any problems now it is a joke dealing with the US mint.

Mike Petraitis

I just got off the phone with someone at the US mint.I told them I never recieved my coins but they charged me for them.She looked up the tracking number and said yes they were shipped but they must of got lost in transit.I asked her what if they do not find them she told me they will refund my money and I will not get the coins.This really got me upset can not believe this happened.

Got my order confirmation at 5AM on Sept 9th, then on Sept 17th I got this:

Dear Robert:

One or more items in your order USS14049572 has been cancelled. If you did not request a cancellation, it was cancelled because the item(s) are no longer in our inventory and are not available for backorder.

So pissed, I have canceled all my enrollment for silver eagles. #FUUSMINT

Greg Oberg

How are you able to enroll in the Silver Dollar eagle plans? Each time I try it said it’s not available. I would like to get enrolled for future years instead of having to try at noon on the release date in the future.
Thanks

This was a tough year for enrolling. Normally it always had been open. The two designs this year more than likely split the available planchettes hence lower mintages. The high demand drew many to enroll and increase enrollments. The mint was virtually maxing out enrollments to the point none would be left to sell on the release date. Hopefully this returns to normal but but there may be limits. Good luck when it opens up again.
