When the United States Mint released the 2001 Proof American Eagle Silver Coin, the series experienced a boost in demand as a result of the change in mint mark featured on the collectible coins. From 1993 to 2000, the Philadelphia Mint had produced the coins, but 2001 mark the start of production at the West Point Mint. Provident Metals now offers the 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin in perfect condition for purchase online.

Walking Liberty has graced the obverse of the 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin since its 1986 introduction. This design was created for the US half dollar in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman. His depiction of Liberty shows her in left-profile relief as she walks from right to left across the coin field.
The heraldic eagle of the United States was first created in 1792 by Robert Scot, 1st Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. A modified version of the national seal has featured on the reverse of the Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin since its debut. This modern depiction of the seal was created in 1986 by John Mercanti, a US Mint engraver and artist who would go on to serve as the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
The 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin enjoyed a significant boost in demand due in large part to the first issue of the coin with a W mint mark. The coins in the proof series had been produced by the San Francisco Mint from 1986 to 1992 and the Philadelphia Mint from 1993 to 2000. The 2001 release was the first at the West Point Mint with the W mint mark. As a result, mintage jumped by 146,000 coins and promptly fell by 100,000 coins in 2002.
