The program may be extended, along with the companion America the Beautiful Quarters® Program, at the discretion of the Treasury Secretary. However, that decision must be made a few years before the original program is slated to end.

Each Tuskegee strike commemorates the historic site in Alabama which was established to honor the contributions made by many African Americans during World War II, especially the 332nd fighter group known as the Tuskegee Airmen.

2021 America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins

The original America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program only calls for one strike to be issued in 2021 as part of it:

  • 2021 Tuskegee Airmen National Historic Site

The Treasury Secretary may authorize a second run-through of the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Program. It that occurs, the first four strikes of the second edition of the program will also be issued in 2021.

Issue Information

The Tuskegee Airmen Coin marks the fifty-sixth for the America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program which debuted in 2010.

Release Date

The US Mint has not announced an official release date for the Tuskegee Coin.

Issue Price

The Mint’s network of authorized purchasers will add a small premium to the current spot price of the five ounces of silver contained within each strike when they sell them to the public.

U.S. Mint Production Facility

The only location to receive the special equipment required for striking the massive America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coins is the US Mint’s facility in Philadelphia. However, mintmarks are not typically found on bullion coins from the Mint.

Designer & Sculptor

Each America the Beautiful Coin contains a portrait of George Washington, the first President of the United States, on its obverse (heads side). It was the work of the artist John Flanagan and was first featured on the 1932 circulating quarter dollar.

The reverse (tails side) of each coin will showcase a portion of the Tuskegee Site.
