2021 (W) Eagle S$1

| Mr. B Coins

A friend gave me a birthday present. He knows I have that coin saving disease.He gave me a 2021 (W) Silver Eagle. I was very excited when I was opening the package and saw that it was minted in West Point. I only have 2-3 other coins with a W mintmark. When I looked for the W, I could not find it.I thought I was ripped off, or that I was really lucky because this was an error coin. Then I thought maybe this is the way it is supposed to be.
I have always relied on the kindness of others. Someone please help.Now, if the image comes out the right way, that would be a miracle.
Enjoy the warm weather,Mr. B

Nice coin/gift. I think it's normal for the W to not be on there.

Thank you all for your responses, especially Longstrider. I understand now. But I would much rather have the mint mark on the coin. Now if we can finally get rid of the winter weather and get some sunshine, things would be much better. Mr. B

That coin was struck at the West Point Mint. When the mint mark is in parenthesize on the label, it means the mint mark is not stamped on the coin but they, NGC ,guarantee that is where it was minted. Someone sent into NGC an unopened monster box of coins. It still had the West Point band on it to prove where the SAE came from. Does this make sense to you? Thanks for the question. Good luck.

Hmm. Is the NGC holder untampered? If it has not been messed with, then it is a W mintmark. I am not aware of any Missing-W errors in 2021.
