2013-W Enhanced Uncirculated American Silver Eagle Coin Images

The majority of coin collectors prefer proofs much more than uncirculated coins, but that preference could change as the uncirculated American Silver Eagle Coin now exhibits an enhanced finished that could change the landscape of the coin’s popularity.

Showing new elements that artistically complement the classic designs of the coins, the U.S. Mint will offer a 2013-W Enhanced American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin as part of the 2013 American Eagle West Point Two-Coin Silver Set.

Special care and original production methods have been employed to create the coin’s unique appearance. The resultant coin is like what everyone has come to expect during the 26 years of the American Silver Eagle Coin’s history.

The coin’s history itself has recently encountered newly broken records and unprecedented sold out products. Both the 2012 American Eagle Silver Coin and the 2012-W American Silver Eagle Coin sold out at the U.S. Mint before a period of a three-week unavailability for the Silver Eagles. When sales commenced for the 2013 American Silver Eagle Coin in early January, opening day sales broke all previous records and the Mint was forced in implement a suspension for ten days.

Elements of the coin are very much a reminder of uncirculated American Silver Eagles of the past, though the coin does not have the mirror-like shine of proofs. Collectors are anticipated to debate heavily whether to term the coins as uncirculated or proof, though the enhanced images on the coin have an immense appeal for collectors of the series regardless of how many coins are minted. Adolph A. Weinman’s design of Lady Liberty striding toward the sunrise is enhanced with alternating sections of matte finish and a mirror-like finish.

The 2013 American Eagle West Point Two-Coin Silver Set will include the enhanced uncirculated American Eagle and a reverse proof American Eagle, though the coins will not be sold separately. The pricing of the set is currently unknown as is the release date for the set.

The introduction of the enhanced image coins appears to be an effort by the Mint to respond to customer’s desire for American Eagle Silver Coins, often viewed as a more affordable investment product for Americans than the American Eagle Gold Coin, which carries a much higher price point for entry.
