NGC MS-70 ER Silver Eagles

The NGC MS-70 ER Silver Eagles feature low populations for high-grade Early Releases 1 oz Silver coins. While many sovereign Silver coins have mintages into the multi-millions, these coins have a low population because they have been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and guaranteed to be among the first coins shipped from the U.S. Mint, allowing a high potential return on your investment in the future.

Investor Advantages:

  • Certified and assured authenticity guaranteed by NGC.
  • Coins are in flawless condition with no imperfections (MS-70).
  • Early Releases designation guarantees the coin was shipped by the U.S. Mint within the first 30 days of production.
  • For 2016, out of a mintage of more than 37,700,000 coins, only 43,555 are listed by NGC with a perfect MS-70 grade with the Early Releases label.

Silver Eagles are Ideal for Investors

The Silver Eagles' beauty remains unsurpassed, and investors often quickly snap up the Early Release coins. The obverse of the Silver Eagle features a Lady Liberty design based on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin, which debuted in 1916. The Silver Eagle coins did not appear from the U.S. Mint until 1986. On the reverse, you will see an eagle with an olive branch in its left talon and a quiver of arrows in its right talon. A ribbon bears the U.S. motto, and 13 stars are suspended above the eagle.

Everyone loves Silver Eagles because of their beauty and historical context. If you want to build your portfolio with Silver coins that not only retain their value, but may even appreciate over time, start with NGC-certified Mint State-70 Silver Eagles from APMEX. The 70 certification from NGC lets you know that expert coin graders could not find defects in these coins even at five-times magnification. Invest in coins each year to get the best value for your money.

Some people like to hang on to their U.S. Mint Silver bullion forever, while others keep their coin collections only until they decide to sell them for a profit. Either way, you will benefit from Silver Eagles. The U.S. Mint guarantees these coins' metal content. The NGC certification also makes them highly desirable among investors, who can enjoy excellent return on investment.

The low premium over spot on recent issues and the perfect 70 certification from NGC make Silver Eagles an ideal starting point for new collectors or investors. You will never have to wonder about the value of your coins, and you can appreciate their beauty and symbolism for years to come.


Premium Appreciation Over Time

This Premium Appreciation Over Time matrix gives you a better idea of how the NGC MS-70 ER Silver Eagles are trending with approximate value increases.* The percentage of change is an indicator of increased value over time.

The premium includes the costs of fabrication, distribution and a minimal dealer fee. Rare coins carry an additional premium representing numismatic value, which is based on scarcity, quality, demand and intangible factors.

Coin Premium Appreciation

Over time (usually at least 3-5 years after release), the premium of a particular coin may increase due to limited availability or other factors such as demand and quality of the coin.

Introductory Premium

APMEX’s initial premium above the spot or melt price at the time of a coin’s release.

Current Premium

The premium or additional cost of a bullion coin above and beyond the metal value of the Precious Metal it contains.

Grading and Warranties

Our company uses the numerical Mint State (MS) grading system, which rates uncirculated coins from MS-60 to MS-70.

Typically, the higher the grade, the better the quality of the coin and in turn, the higher the value. The grade assigned to a coin reflects its strike, luster, marks, scratches and overall eye appeal. Grading is a subjective art and depends on the opinion of the person grading the coin or currency. Thus, grading can and does vary from numismatic coin firm to numismatic coin firm, from grading service to grading service, and from expert to expert. A difference of one grade (e.g., MS-64 to MS-65) can result in a significant change in the valuation of a numismatic coin or currency. Grades and descriptions of numismatic coins and currency are opinions, not statements of fact or guarantees, and are based on standards and interpretations in place at the time of grading.

When you acquire a coin or currency from APMEX that is independently graded by a third-party grading service such as Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), APMEX relies entirely on the expertise/determination of the grading service. In addition, we rely upon definitions provided by these independent grading services, including definitions of such terms as PCGS' "First Strike®" which refers to coins packaged and delivered by the U.S. Mint in the thirty (30)-day period following the initial sales date of a new product. We do not re-grade or independently evaluate the product's grade in its sealed holder. APMEX reserves the right to deliver independently graded coins that have been graded by an independent grading service of APMEX's choice such as PCGS or NGC. APMEX guarantees that the numismatic coins and Precious Metals it sells are genuine. APMEX expressly disclaims any other warranties with respect to coins or Precious Metals, express or implied, including the implied warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose. See our User Agreement for a full disclaimer of warranties.

Premium Appreciation

You should know that different market factors may influence the price of a specific Precious Metal or the associated premium. For example, the price of a numismatic coin may be affected by such factors as grade, scarcity and marketplace demand, while the price of a bullion coin is closely tied to the spot price for the metal content of the coin as well as year-specific mintages. Past performance and growth projections for one type of Precious Metal may not apply to other types of Precious Metals that APMEX may offer.

Holding Period

Our experience suggests coins of specific quality or scarcity that have demonstrated historical premium appreciation tend to do so at least 3 to 5 years after the coin was produced. Market conditions and other factors will always impact the future value for coins, and therefore premium appreciation should never be considered to be guaranteed.

Our Prices

Our prices are set internally based upon our analysis of a variety of factors and are not necessarily tied to the prices quoted by any other organization. Prices are subject to change based on market conditions.
  APMEX acts as a dealer and generally owns the Precious Metals it buys and sells.


All investments involve risk and Precious Metals are no exception. The Precious Metals market is speculative, unregulated and volatile, and prices for these items may rise or fall over time.

APMEX generally classifies coins as bullion, semi-numismatic and numismatic. Some coins may fall within more than one category, depending on their specific grade or condition. Other dealers and organizations may define these terms or classify these coins differently.

Precious Metals generally have a premium above their melt value. Premiums may increase or decrease based upon current market conditions such as supply and demand. Changes in premiums may affect a Precious Metal’s pricing beyond changes in spot prices.

Precious Metals can go down as well as up in value. These items may not be suitable for everyone. APMEX does not determine the suitability of any specific person to purchase Precious Metals. You should consult with your independent financial advisor regarding whether such an investment is right for you. You should not acquire any products from APMEX if you are not competent or qualified to make your own financial decisions. You should obtain a thorough understanding of the Precious Metals products before you acquire these products as a collector or investor.

The investment value of Precious Metals depends in large part on the price you pay. If you are acquiring any of APMEX's products as an investment, you should evaluate its current market value, potential for appreciation and liquidity, and consult independent sources regarding these factors. APMEX does not guarantee that any client will be able to sell Precious Metals at the original purchase price or a higher price in the future.

APMEX is not responsible for any changes in tax laws or other statutes which may affect any profit or salability of your coins or currency.
