American Eagle Silver Coins Have Valuable Links to the Past

Purchasing Silver American Eagles enables you make an investment in the future while also connecting with the past. The 2016 coin celebrated the 30th anniversary of a classic design with a special feature: a lettered edge. The Silver Eagle is the highest-purity Silver coin from the U.S. Mint and one of the most popular designs of any type ever issued.

The obverse includes an image of Lady Liberty, originally designed by Adolph A. Weinman and first released on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. In this classic design, an American flag drapes over the patriotic female figure, who beckons to a rising sun in the distance. The text reads "Liberty" across the top and "In God We Trust" along the right side.

The 12th chief engraver of the U.S. Mint, John Mercanti, produced the iconic design on the reverse. Here, a heraldic eagle appears beneath 13 stars representing the nation's original colonies. The reverse also indicates the Silver weight, the coin's value and the text "United States of America."

The U.S. Mint has issued coins in a variety of Precious Metals for more than 220 years, and this remains their highest-purity Silver coin. Since Proof Silver Eagles have a lower mintage than their bullion equivalents, you will benefit from the collectible appeal of this Silver coin along with its numerous historic links and eminently popular design.

One of my favorite PR-70 Silver Eagles

By  Max

from Okinawa, Japan

5.0

I buy a proof American Eagle for every new year. This years coin was special in that it was a first strike and also had engraving on the edge of the coin, a first for me in my collection. The case did not fit in my NGC plastic case holder as it was a little larger than previous PCGS icon holders. No big deal. As always APMEX delivered in record time, and I live in Japan. The delivery was almost as fast as when I lived in Texas. I will only buy my gold and silver from these folks. They have earned my trust over the years.

  • Value (low premium over spot)
