    Has anyone noticed the obverse on some 2022 silver eagles appears to have been minted with rusty dies. The reverse are normal.

    Nope, hadn't noticed that. How 'bout a picture to bring your point home? :)

    I stopped collecting ASE at the end of 2021. But I am interested in your subject. Can you post a pic of one?

    ASE? What's that?

    LOL, you can tell I'm not a collector of them. Now watch some fool tell me what a ASE is. Geeze.

    the obverse is done just like the walking liberty 50 cent coin for they type 2 silver eagles, it's why they added AAW initials on it, they retro'd the obverse to be the original design instead of the modified design that was used on the type 1 silver eagles.

    It's not that it was stuck with rusty dies, the contrast between the lower detail of the obverse with the high details of the reverse that give you that impression, unless of course you saw one that was really pitted that is. I haven't seen one like that.

    theres' less detail on the obverse of the type 2 than on the obverse of the type 1 and it's intentional as part of the design.

    I think also possibly they did it to throw off counterfeiters because it's two totally different methods of die making to produce each side of it, old school obverse and new school reverse.

    I have not observed that condition on the 2022 American Silver Eagles I have purchased.

    I'm at a loss about 2022 American Silver Eagles. I don't follow a lot of the stuff about the Mint making ASEs and then hoarding them up until the first of the year. I see some being sold at about $5-$60 and Rick is selling them graded for about $170. Are these just silver bullion that the mint made to sell to vendors? I have my own ideas about collection and I still collect ASEs except I like to buy those with a mintmark on them. However, with the way the economy is going, we will have to sell our coins so that we can eat.

    The mint started making the coins for this year way back in last year. They can't offer a coin for sale on Jan 2 if it isn't available. I remember one year when they stated they were making ASE's in September. Each year some sets are available right at the beginning of the new year. We know the mint employees don't come to work on New Years day and start production.

    I think they put an E where another S should be that would make more sense don't you know!
