The Uncirculated versions of the gold and silver American Eagles
with W Mint mark were brought into the Mint's sales lineup for the
20th anniversary of the American Eagle series.
The Uncirculated coins have been issued annually since, except 2009,
when the 1-ounce planchets were reserved strictly for production of
bullion coins, without Mint marks. No Proof American Eagle 1-ounce
gold or silver coins were issued in 2009 either.
