Product Details
In the late 1960s, the Defense Logistics Agency had over 165 million ounces of Silver in its stockpile. The government dumped the Silver into the open market in 1980 and 1981 to drive down Silver prices after the Hunt brothers tried to corner the market.

Round Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Individual rounds come in protective packaging.
  • Obverse: Features the American flag and an Eagle within a wreath along with the weight and purity.
  • Reverse: Displays the words, “Minted From U.S. Strategic Stockpile Silver” and “Formerly Stored at U.S. Assay Office in San Francisco.”
  • Secondary Market Silver could be perfect, scruffy or somewhere in between.

Protect your rounds from fingerprints by adding these cotton gloves to your order.

These rounds are all dated 1981, these rounds are over 30 years old and so it is expected that these may have some tarnishing, dings, and scratches. Own a piece of history by adding this 1 oz Silver round to your cart today!

Mixed condition

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Ordered 4; one outstanding condition, one as described in write up, two heavily tarnished, rims black ( not just tarnish but so black wonder if not burned in some way) one of which looked like someone tried to clean and gave up. Should have skipped these.

As old as a coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I was lucky enough to get an alternate eagle on my coin. not the one seen in pictures. For a 41 year old coin, it came exactly as fate would have it, weathered and aged to perfection. I will not be cleaning the 41 years of history off of my coin. I placed it straight into its coin protector "while gloved" and back into the plastic Apmex shipped it in, where it will always stay, never to be resold.

Stranger Things 1981

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Perfect Christmas gift for the family. Gave one to my nephew into Stranger Things and said “This is a 1oz silver coin minted in San Francisco in 1981 that I never even knew existed till last week and I wanted you to have one. So, if you ever need to slay a Stephen King demon with a silver bullet use this. Or just wait until after the economy reboots and this will be a several hundred-dollar coin.” Best. Timeline. Ever.

Exceeded expectations

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I liked the history of my coins, that they were minted from silver held by the US Assay Office. All the coins I received were in an uncirculated condition with very few bag marks, no stains or discoloration.. Very pleased with them.
