2021 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars
On 1/5/21, the US President signed the 1921 Silver Dollar Coin Anniversary Act, officially legalizing this act. Normally, the US Mint can strike only two commemorative coins per year according to Congress. Thanks to this new act introduced back in March, the US Mint will also strike a 2021 edition of the Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars as an anniversary coin act, not technically a commemorative coin act.
Since these coins are celebrating their centennial transition from the Morgan Dollar to the Peace Dollar, this 2021 release is nothing short of remarkable. After WWI, the US needed to replace the Morgan Silver Dollar. Under the Pittman Act, the US melted 270 million Morgans to support the war effort. After that, the Peace Silver Dollars rolled in as the US rejoiced at the end of WWI. That being said, specific information on these coins is not yet available. However, these should release this year, so stay tuned for updates.
Last America The Beautiful Silver Quarter: 2021 Alabama Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site coin
The America the Beautiful 5 oz silver quarters program began in 2010, and it comes to a grand end this first quarter! There are 56 total coins that make up the program. Each ATB coin released honors US national forests, parks, historic events, and locations. The release to close out the program is the Alabama Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site Coin. Also made with 5 troy oz of .999 fine silver, the reverse of the coin displays an airman fastening his helmet while planes fly behind him. The obverse displays George Washington, which is the face of every US quarter.
Alabama’s Tuskegee University is historic for being the first place where Black citizens could participate in Air Force training away from the pressures of racism. Established before the Civil Rights movement, many Black airmen trained here to fight in World War II. The opening of this facility offered Black Americans a strong base to rally against desegregation in the military in later years.
This historic piece is IRA Eligible, but the circulating 2021 quarter with this image is not. The 5 oz silver quarter’s IRA eligibility and impressive history rank this among the top US Mint 2021 coins to buy. Complete your collection of the ATB quarters, or grab this single historic issue. As this program has plenty of support, collectors might try to gather this ATB quarter as soon as it is available! Plan ahead to secure yours.
2021 Gold and Silver Eagles
The American Gold and Silver Eagle coins remain staples year after year. Every metal this coin arrives in features the distinct American icons of Lady Liberty, the US Capitol, and the American Bald Eagle. Although it goes without saying that the American Eagle coins are some of the top 2021 coins to buy, this year that is particularly the case. The US Mint Gold and Silver Eagle coins will only feature a new reverse image later in the year. But, the first 2021 Gold and Silver Eagle coins to be released will maintain their original reverses. The American Bald Eagle takes the spotlight on the 35th-anniversary redesign.
The US Mint strikes its Gold Eagle in multiple sizes, but the coins' gold weight remains pure. What this means is the gold purity is .9167, but in the 2021 Gold American Eagle coin, there is actually 1 troy oz of pure gold. Thus, this coin is larger than other gold coins with a .999+ purity since there are other metals in the coin. Having certain other metals like copper better preserves the gold coin’s integrity. This purity actually mimics the famous South African Krugerrand! Also, yes, this gold coin is the exception to the minimum gold purity standard for an IRA.
The 2021 Silver Eagle coins will also display a new design with a bald eagle. But, these IRA eligible coins maintain their .999 fine silver purity with a weight of 1 troy oz.
New 2021 Gold and Silver Eagle Coins
It should almost go without saying that the new redesigned Gold and Silver American Eagle coins will be among the top coins to buy in 2021. Although these 2021 coins will still contain the same amount of gold and silver, the gold "Family of Eagles" image and the John Mercanti silver design will be retired. Therefore, new illustrations will take the place of both beloved images. But, this is not the only thing to look forward to.
Actually, the new reverse images support a brand new 3-level security feature. No concrete information regarding the specific information about these features is public at this time. Please stay tuned for more information as the release of the new coins draws closer.
Special Edition 2021 San Francisco Silver Eagle
Alongside the new 2021 Silver and Gold Eagles are the 2021 (S) Silver American Eagle coin. Please note, this release does not carry a San Francisco mintmark. The importance of this coin is to honor this mint’s history as the first to ever strike the American Eagle program in 1986. Consequently, this renders the new 2021 (S) Silver Eagle coins as a last hurrah release with the John Mercanti reverse design.
These are also “Emergency Issue” US Mint coins because they are not from the West Point Mint. This is especially the case because of the continuing 2020 pandemic. Before the 1 troy oz, .999 fine silver coins are officially sold out, be sure to snag one of the certified Silver Eagles!
