The mintage of the 2001 $1 Silver Eagle is substantially larger than all of the dates from the 1990s, but a mere fraction of the mintage of the 2010 Silver Eagle. Much of this disparity has to do with the furor over silver that took place in the late 2000s, but that also means that demand has increased for all dates in this series.
High grade examples are the norm for this date, but MS70 examples are exceedingly rare as a percentage of the total population. True MS-70, spot-free examples of this date seem to be a good value in light of their rarity.
