One of only 75,000 produced for a special set, the Millennium Set coin is one of the rarest Silver Eagle issues, especially in MS-70. With a population of only 23, this coin is the absolute key to the elite Silver Eagle with Varieties registry set.
Many Silver Eagles of this vintage, even those graded MS-70, display noticeable flaws, such as carbon spotting or milk spots, that do not preclude a technical MS-70 grade based on current grading standards. This coin is completely free of these imperfections. This is a spot-free, attractive example!
- One of only 75,000 Silver Eagles produced at West Point for the Millennium Coin and Currency Set.
- Population of only 23 in MS-70 at NGC, with 1 known at PCGS, as of June 2016.
- NGC encapsulation protects and guarantees the perfect 70 condition of the coin.
- Until the advent of the mint specific monster box strapping in 2007, the originating mint of bullion strike Silver Eagles could not be ascertained. Since the Millennium Set coins were all minted in West Point, these coins are among the first Silver Eagles that can be solidly attributed to the West Point Mint.
- Obverse: Adolph A. Weinman’s design showing Lady Liberty draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge.
- Reverse: A heraldic eagle is shown below 13 small stars, representing the original colonies.

One of the most elite issues of the Silver Eagle, the 2000 Millennium Set Silver Eagle is a rarity both absolutely and conditionally! With only 75,000 coins produced, its absolute rarity is on par with the legendary 1995-W proof Silver Eagle, and stands alone among business strikes, as the next scarcest issue, the 1996, outnumbers it by orders of magnitude. Conditionally, however, the Millennium Set coin has no peer in scarcity among Silver Eagle issues. Even the key date 1999 has a population nearly five times that of this coin, and the 1995-W's population is more than 10 times higher.
