Issued without a mintmark, this coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint, the primary minting facility of the United States Mint. It went on sale on August 10, 2021 with a household limit of three coins. The coin was originally scheduled to go on sale in the spring, but after the Mint received numerous complaints from customers unable to successfully order the 2021-CC and 2021-O coins released on May 24, it paused the release of subsequent issues and later announced they would be released in August with a lower household limit than in the spring.
The coin became “currently unavailable” in about half an hour on August 10, even though it did not sell of its entire mintage. First day sales were 157,486 coins, and later in the year after the Mint processed all orders and reconciled issues with payments, additional coins went on sale but sold out very quickly. Final sales of this coin were 174,504 (Buy on eBay).
