Product Details

With 1 oz of pure Silver and a beautiful patriotic design, the Silver American Eagle has become the most popular bullion coin in the United States. These 2002 American Silver Eagles are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Minted since 1986 and with 1 oz of pure U.S. Silver and a beautiful patriotic design, the Silver American Eagle has become the most popular Silver Bullion coin in the United States.

Adolph A. Weinman’s beautiful design showing Lady Liberty, draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge, appears on the obverse. Lady Liberty carries in her arms branches of oak and laurel symbolizing both civil and military glory.

The reverse, designed by John M. Mercanti, shows a heraldic eagle with a shield and 13 small stars appear to represent the original thirteen colonies. The eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in the left symbolizing America's desire for peace but readiness for war.

Orders of 20 or more come in mint tubes; 500 or more come in “Monster Boxes.”

      Trying to fill book with high quality coins. Do not want dual quality coins in my collection booklet. Most of the coins were nice looking but several of the coins had low luster and a dual finish. Not what I thought were BU coins should be like. I have bought many tubes of silver eagles. I never opened the tubes because they were rated as BU. But when I started opening the tubes to check them, I notices many of the coins had very poor stamp quality. Yes, they were uncirculated, but certainly not brilliant.

      02' Silver Eagle BU. Well, it had some (3) light brown spots just above 'In God We Trust'. Not a deal breaker, but I'm rather new to this experience. I guess don't understand what BU is, I thought it meant pretty much perfect? Happy with price, shipping is alway quick, selection is great.
