Annually issued, the uncirculated Silver Eagle appears a month and a half earlier in the year than last year’s release. Debut pricing for the silver coins is $43.95 each. The U.S. Mint indicates no household or order limits are in place. In addition, a pre-determined mintage has not been announced.

Uncirculated Silver Eagles first launched in 2006. They have appeared annually since that inaugural release with the exception of 2009 and 2010. Those years saw record demand for the related bullion silver coins strain U.S. Mint blank availability and the uncirculated Silver Eagles were canceled.

Upon returning in 2011, the silver coins remained as one of the most sought after U.S. Mint products. Last year’s 2013-W Uncirculated Silver Eagle saw sales reaching to 178,941 before they sold out in December. An additional 37,343 have been sold to date as part of the 2013 Annual Uncirculated Dollar Coin Set.

This year’s issue is similar to all past collector releases.

"The 2014 American Eagle One Ounce Silver Uncirculated Coin is struck on specially burnished blanks," describes a news release from the U.S. Mint. "The .999 fine silver coin has a finish similar to its bullion counterpart but carries the "W" mint mark indicating production at the United States Mint at West Point. Each coin is encapsulated in protective plastic and placed in a blue presentation case."

Shown on obverses of all Silver Eagle coins is Adolph A. Weinman’s "Walking Liberty." This image of Liberty was first seen on the 1916-1947 half-dollar coin and is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful to ever grace a coin from the United States. Obverse inscriptions include IN GOD WE TRUST, LIBERTY and 2014.
