The V75 Silver Eagle came out November 5, 2020. The U.S. Mint said that it would be a proof coin. I had just gotten into coin collecting when this coin was coming out. The mintage of the coin was supposed to be 75,000. The lowest mintage for a silver eagle EVER! There was A LOT of hype for this coin. But not only this coin. There was also a twin. A V75 GOLD EAGLE! Even better, this gold coin would have a mintage of only 1,945! The lowest mintage coin ever made by the U.S. mint! On Ebay, there were a lot of pre-sales. The value on these coins were in the thousands! But how much would they cost from the U.S. Mint? Well the V75 SIlver Eagle would be only $83! The V75 Gold Eagle would cost $2,600! So there was a lot of cash to be made. But let's talk about the coin more. The V75 coins were made as an anniversary for world war 2. It had been 75 years since world war 2, so that is the V75. The V75 on the coin is in the lower right hand side of the coin. The V75 mark itself is called a privy mark. The V75 coins were only minted in the Westpoint mint. Fun fact, in 2019-2020 the Westpoint mint made some quarters! The ones made in 2020 have a V75 privy mark on the obverse of the coin! On the day the coins went live, some big coin dealers were asking a ton of people to go and try and buy a V75 coin, then when they had it the big companies would pay them more then the people paid for the coin, and make some cash. What the people did not know was that the big companies would not pay them a fair price for the coin! I was one of the people lucky enough to get a V75 coin. I got the V75 Silver Eagle. I am a kid, so the Gold Eagle was out of my price range. There was a household limit of 1. There were thousands of people online that day trying to get a V75 coin from the U.S. mint. Only a few of the people that set out to get a V75 coin got one. It is now, and will be for a long time, one of the most rare eagle coins ever made.
