2024-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle Release

50

Tomorrow, June 6, the United States Mint releases the 2024-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle. This 1-ounce, .999 fine silver coin comes from the Mint’s West Point facility and continues the uncirculated Silver Eagle series, which dates back to 2006.

No mintage or product limit is stated for this coin made for collectors. However, the U.S. Mint indicates an initial household order limit of 10 coins per household for the first 24-hour sales period.

Tens of thousands of these Silver Eagles are sold annually, with individual sales through June 2 listed as follows:

  • 138,268 for the 2023 coin,
  • 164,601 for the 2022 coin, and
  • 174,943 for the 2021 coin.

Coin Designs

All American Silver Eagles, whether this uncirculated edition, those in collector proof quality, or the investor-intended bullion version, bear the same obverse (heads side) design. This design features Adolph A. Weinman’s classic Walking Liberty image, a portrayal of Liberty that first appeared on half-dollars from 1916 to 1947 and has since been a favorite among collectors.

This CoinNews photo shows both sides of the 2023-W Uncirculated American Silver Eagle. This year’s coin features the same designs and uncirculated appearance as previous years.

Liberty is shown in full stride, enveloped in folds of the flag. Her right hand is extended while her left hand holds branches of laurel and oak. Despite appearing on the obverse since the series was introduced, slight enhancements were made to the image in 2021 utilizing U.S. Mint historical assets and modern-day technology to better render Weinman’s original intention.

Obverse inscriptions read “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2024.”

2021 also saw a completely new reverse design for the program, with artwork created by U.S. Mint artist Emily Damstra and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso. The design depicts an eagle as it approaches a landing, carrying an oak branch, as if to add it to a nest."

Reverse inscriptions read: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”

Each coin features an enhanced security measure with a reeded edge variation.

I’m shocked. A clamshell holder for the 2024-W UNC ASE? Where did that come from?

Kaiser, I know a lot of folks have been clamoring for the clamshell– but I’d actually be fine with a cardboard holder like RCM uses if it meant a price decrease.

That’s an excellent point, Major D, and not just for the possible price relief that might come with such likely less expensive card packaging. Think of how much easier storage and quick identification of a coin that type of container would offer.

Rick

Why stop there?
Add in an official serial number and an unofficial grade from the Mint and there you have it! A nice & handy slabbed & graded collectable coin!?
That one looks exceptional! An MS-70 all the way!
But then again, there goes the price decrease…
.·´¯(>▂<)´¯·. It was the thought that counted!?

Kaiser Wilhelm

But, Rick, how can you calculate the cost of such awesome convenience?

Rick

It is awesome and convenient indeed! I can’t do the calculation packaging & promotion wise for an upgraded/certified RCM paper slab, it’s just not within my means or interest at the moment. But leave it up the the RCM(or USM soon?), and they’ll come up with something even more to add to their slabbed bullion! After all they have become quite effective in their attempts to further legitimize their special offerings for Bullion. A great example is the addition of serial #s on COA’s, as well as lower Mintages. Good marketing on their part! What’s most impressive to me at… Read more »

Extra “V” obverse vs reverse on the FRONT of the holder??… East Coast Guru says, “Agree. Very odd. Especially since the extra V is the main event and is on the obverse to boot.” E1 says, “Staying tuned. I sure would like to hear the explanation to that one. NGC did the same thing.” Agreed and true to both of you. I can’t find my original question, but it more or less went like… (Me)”When Grading and encapsulating the Extra “V” 1C. Why is it that some holders have the coin obverse displayed on the front of the holder(label side),… Read more »

Sorry, the comment above was held up for “approval'(because of my link)for at least a day. And since we now have covered this issue ad nauseam, and has been resolved in my mind, feel free to skip it.

“Obverse Showing” and “Reverse Showing” are the key terms.

Copy that.

Thanks Rick

Rick

Yes, remember that one. And even so, what he said was kind of vague and not direct? But the subject was all about the obverse of the coin, and the label side of the holder being as one, if you will… That’s why I went back yesterday, got a hold of Isidro himself and instructed him to check on my 3 ANACS V crossovers(in the encapsulation room now) to be sure that the “Obverse Showing” on the “front” of the holder is happening. He relayed my message to the grading dept. and placed an “alert” on my order/request. The takeaway… Read more »

Test…
I’m getting the “waiting for approval” treatment after attaching a photo and a link.
Let’s see how a normal comment goes?

Kaiser Wilhelm

Rick,
Just a wild guess here, but I would think it’s the link rather than the photo that causes the holdup. Maybe since links could lead to competitive sites they are frowned upon.

Rick

Probably so, the link was to a coin on eBay, which I’ve done before? But…..

Kaiser Wilhelm

Possibly, Rick, you just stumbled upon an algorithm with severe indigestion.

Rick

E1, Gang,
Guess the Coin, the Composition, and Grade. Then you win the Reverse photo!
Look familiar E?….

If anything, that Man had great inspiration for ALL at that time when I read his quote tonight…
I’m not so sure that is the case for many, many people among us now…

2014-D Unc Set (Clad) SP-69.

Rick

You get the prize!
They did a good job with the conservation, and lightened up “the spot”, and that’s about it. The spot remains, and so does the old label! The coin looks so much better in the new holder. The old one was trashed and really caused a distraction to the coin–a lot!
You can very much tell that these were struck in a higher relief….

PCGS photo. Some kind of a two tone perimeter band going on around the bowl? In hand the coin is more like my phone pics…

Rick

It’s very clean except for the spot.
My strategy was a conservation, re-grade, and re-holder–And to get an SP-70 bonus—Nope, but I enjoy the coin very much anyway!

E 1

Rick,

It cleaned up real nice. Photographs much better too. Centering is good and it has a whopper of a strike. Generally, the water spotting on that issue is so bad that it is discouraging. But, that one is actually really clean. Kinda PL. It is a great coin. I wouldn’t mind having it.

Cheers

John F. Kennedy, like yet another of our greatest Presidents, Abraham Lincoln, was able to shepherd our nation through unusually troubled and precarious times.

Major D

And with no mintage or product limit this time, the Mint can keep on selling them until the cows come home (wait, the Mint doesn’t abide by limits anyways, so never mind). Get ’em while you… well, whenever you want, or perhaps until the Mint raises the price to $80, then $84….

Have you ever wondered, Major D, what would happen if the cows didn’t come home?

John Q. Coinage

Buy them up kids, then try to sell for any profit…..good luck player, like hitting 19 in Blackjack

Kaiser Wilhelm

I have my personal answer for that, John Q. Coinage. I never sell so I never worry.

E 1

You gotta hold them for at least 10 years before exercising any inkling about selling. Twenty years is better. Buy only the keys in high grade though. For me its; Don’t Sell! Don’t Sell! Don’t Sell! A rare coin will never go out of business.

Cheers

E 1

Pull on my finger.

E 1, glad to know I wasn’t the only one targeted with these ads. I was beginning to wonder if the AI was telling me I should see a doctor, LOL!

Major D

Hey, do you get this one, too — from Money Metals? At first, I thought the gold was making an obscene gesture!

Major D and E 1,
On the face of it if the “girl pooter” had had access to this “gold plugger” the mishap above would likely have been averted.

Major D

Yes, but that would be a hard one to tote around, let alone try to sit!

Kaiser Wilhelm

Major D,
Two very valid points. I guess an air freshener with have to do.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Ditto on the complete lack of reason to pen the latter blither.

Kaiser Wilhelm

Sorry about the above; I was only semi-conscious to scribble that.

Kaiser Wilhelm

“Don’t sell” repeated often is truly perfect advice, E 1. Thanks for the advice!

Major D

JQC, I think they would be wise to follow E 1’s advice and look for pennies. Much better odds there searching through rolls, with 115 years of history you never know what’s going to show up. And you always have a free ticket, so if you don’t find anything you can get your money back or trade-in and try again.

Kaiser Wilhelm

I tend to favor hunting for nickels and quarters as opposed to cents and dimes when looking through change since by virtue of the latters’ small print they are a bit strenuous to examine with the tired eyes of aging collectors like myself.

Kaiser, you’re right! Dimes are the worse for me.

E 1

Get a digital scope with a 10 inch screen for $125. That is the only thing that saved me.

Kaiser Wilhelm

E 1 and Major D,

I suppose where there is a need someone will find a solution, and then yet someone else will spread the word. Thanks, E 1!

Major D

Thanks for the tip, E 1. You have a manufacturer and model you can recommend?

E 1

Major D,

Prices have come down a lot on these. I have a “Vevor” and Rick has a “Tomlov.” Just shop around on eBay. At the very minimum you will want the 10″ screen and 1080P resolution. That’s what Rick and I have. A larger screen and higher resolution are all the more better. One year later and my Vevor is still working great. All these scopes are made in China though.

Cheers

Oh yes, Major D, those dimes are the great headache makers, aren’t they?

John Q. Coinage

I stil search most items but the 10c is useless. I found a war nickel going thru $10 of rolls. Also, have hit a few clad JFKs in rolls, but even getting a roll is rare these days. Now at the bank when I wanted to swap 3 $100s for 30 $10 they wanted ID….wtf. I just gave them my bank ATM card, kind of scary

Kaiser Wilhelm

Perhaps the just purchased Tide and Bounty clearly visible in your shopping bag aroused suspicion with the teller that you could be a money launderer. After all, the way things are going these days they can’t be too careful.

Major D

LOL, they all need cleaning (and disinfecting) based on the condition of bank rolled coins lately.

Major D

Better yet, John Q whenever I go to deposit rolls, I’m asked where did I get them from? WTH? Oh, I made them in my basement.
