2012-W $1 American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin

The 2012-W $1 American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin appears from the United States Mint as part of the American Silver Eagle Program which debuted in 1986. Those inaugural year strikes were only available in bullion and proof varieties, however, with these uncirculated coins only appearing in 2006.

This uncirculated series then ran for three years before being cancelled in 2009. The US Mint was forced to cancel their production that year as it struggled to meet demand for the bullion versions of the coin. As a side note, the related proof varieties were also cancelled that year.

Unfortunately, unlike the proof Silver Eagles, production did not resume in 2010 on the uncirculated coin. They would finally make a return in 2011.
