Protect your U.S. Silver coins with proper handling and storage.

Retain the value of your U.S. Silver coins by handling them and storing them with care. The 1986 1 oz Silver American Eagle is not incredibly old or historic compared to some vintage or rare coins, but these Silver coins are from the inaugural minting year of the modern Silver bullion coins produced by the U.S. Mint, so they have numismatic value. When handling this American Eagle Silver coin, hold it by the edges, protecting the surface from the natural oils on your fingers. Also, when examining these Silver coins, always hold them over a towel or soft surface, just in case you drop them.

Understand numismatic value when purchasing U.S. Silver coins.

The 1986 Silver American Eagle is not particularly old and has the same Silver content as its modern day counterpart, so why is it priced higher? To understand the value of this Silver coin, it is important to understand numismatic value, or collector value, which, depending on the coin, can be related to its rarity, beauty, historical value and minting date. In the case of this U.S. Silver coin, it's increased numismatic value is based on the fact that they were minted in the inaugural year of the Silver American Eagle, greatly increasing the value of this popular Silver coin among collectors. When evaluating which Silver coins to purchase, it is beneficial to first determine whether you want to purchase coins for their raw Silver value or if you are interested in coins with value beyond their Precious Metals content.

1986 was the inaugural year of the Silver American Eagle making this 1 oz Silver coin ideal for any Silver Eagle coin collection.

Pretty good

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

When I first ordered this coin I guess I expected it to be a very high quality coin.. I didn't understand the grading of coins. But as this is a BU coin which equates to around MS 63, I'd say the coin looks pretty good. It's nice to have a 1986 ASE. Be even nicer to have one in MS70 but then you talking a lot of money. Anyway, thanks again Apmex!

Good starting point

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I began my collection of the Eagles with the first coin, and compared to the 1988 Silver Maple I also ordered, this coin showed some slight patina. But still a pretty coin for the age.

Interesting differences on the first year coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I bought two of these first-year coins on an "AlertMe!" and they look perfect, just as good as my 2016 coin! There are some interesting design changes between the two. The 1986 coins use a fancier serif font for the lettering that stands out better than the font on the 2016 coin. Also, the Mint has added some fine detail to Liberty over the years. For example, she's noticeably bustier in 2016. At first I thought my 1986 coins weren't as well struck, or maybe the dies had been over-polished, but then I noticed her collar is definitely different. So I guess someone decided Liberty looked too flat-chested on the first coins. It's fun to see how the design has evolved over the years!

First year of the Silver Eagle. I love the design of these coins and had to pick up the first year. Was not disappointed at all. If you are going to collect these coins, no better place to start then the first year.
