Only coins received in the first 30 days of release from the U.S. Mint are eligible for the MintDirect® Premier designation. This provides assurance that these 1 oz Silver Eagles are among the best struck releases of the year.

APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure the authenticity and condition after the coins are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a protective, non-reactive plastic polymer authentication card to protect your coin’s finish. This process seals the coin within the card, creating a tamper-evident package that guarantees your investment indefinitely. Learn more about the tamper-evident process here.

Coin Highlights:
  • Each coin contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Packaged in RF-welded plastic polymer case (2 1/2" x 3 1/4"), protecting the coin's finish, with included authentication card.
  • Each authentication card features the MintDirect® Premier designation, ensuring it comes directly from the U.S. Mint to you.
  • 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.
  • Guaranteed by the U.S. Mint.

Secure your Silver Eagle by adding an attractive display box to your order.

With their beloved, patriotic design, Silver American Eagle coins provide diversity to investment portfolios with a hard asset that is both secure and internationally recognized. Add these truly beautiful Silver Eagle coins to your cart today!

January of every year, the United States Mint is required to deliver coins that carry the date of the new year. Accordingly, the dies used to strike the coins from the prior year are destroyed and new dies are engraved, prepared and deployed to strike coins for the new year.

Because each new year brings new dies, APMEX has designated all products delivered by the U.S. Mint in January that go through the MintDirect® process as MintDirect® Premier. This designation may not be recognized by external grading services. APMEX will only have a limited number of MintDirect® Premier products each year.

APMEX has created a process to guarantee these coins are direct from the U.S. Mint to you to ensure that our customers receive only authentic U.S. Mint coins. MintDirect® is your symbol of guarantee that these coins were processed from tubes that come straight from mint-sealed "Monster Boxes", exactly as they were delivered, providing peace-of-mind when buying, holding or selling.

APMEX individually seals each MintDirect® coin to ensure that the authenticity and condition of each coin is protected after they are removed directly from the mint boxes. Each coin is placed in a protective authentication card composed of a non-reactive plastic polymer to protect your coin’s finish.

The sealing process seals the coin within the authentication card, creating a tamper-evident package that will guarantee your investment indefinitely. If the tamper-evident package has been opened in any way, you will know it. After the process is completed, the coin in the tamper-evident package is removed from the machine and checked to ensure that the quality of the packaging meets our exacting standards. You now have a finished MintDirect® Premier 2016 1 oz Silver American Eagle Single.

By using this process, APMEX can guarantee that the coins you receive are authentic and in the exact condition as they were when they left the United States Mint. The MintDirect® process gives investors’ confidence in their purchase, knowing that they can buy, hold or sell an authentic coin, guaranteed.

Note: The MintDirect® process does not guarantee protection from spotting or tarnishing that normally occurs in chemically active metals, such as Gold, Silver and Platinum.

When you buy Silver coins, you pay the premium Silver price

It is not possible to buy Silver coins, bars or rounds at the Silver spot price, which is the price of Silver prior to fabrication. Any 1 oz Silver coin or even Silver bars, have a premium over the Silver spot price. The cost of this Silver Eagle coin and all Precious Metal bullion incorporate the cost of fabrication, distribution, small dealer fees and any numismatic or collector value, known as the premium price. For example, this 2016 Silver American Eagle will only have a slightly higher premium over spot price because it has little numismatic value even though collectors do buy this beautiful coin. Other U.S. Mint Silver coins, like the 1799 Draped Bust dollar, will have an even greater premium over spot price of Silver due to its historical value and rarity.

Determine whether you want to buy Silver coins or Silver bars when investing in Silver bullion.

When investing in Silver, do you buy Silver coins or Silver bars? Many investors prefer to buy 1 oz Silver bullion bars, focusing on the raw Silver content and securing the lowest premium over spot price possible. Many investors, however, buy Silver Eagle coins, and other U.S. Mint coins, for the opportunity to own a little piece of history, looking beyond Silver value and focusing on the coin’s rarity, historical value and beauty. Investors also like the 2016 Silver American Eagle, because while it does have a small numismatic value, it is an investment-grade coin that is backed by the U.S. Mint.

Scratches on face

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I purchased several Silver American Eagle coins from 2015-2017, all of them were in great condition except the one from 2016 I purchased has 2 scratches on the face of the coin (still in the mint direct protective sealed case). Unfortunately I didn't examine my coin right when it arrived and missed the 14 day window, which i am sure they would have worked with me during that time. Lesson learned, really look at the condition of your coin when it arrives.

Iconic, Patriotic, and a Great Value

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Underneath the most beautiful word in the English language, the personification of liberty is sculpted to gracefully stride the obverse of this coin toward an ever-dawning sun. Personally viewing the masterful engraving of the dress and flag adorning the woman is in itself worth the purchase price. Moreover, the eagle on the reverse of the coin artfully depicts America's strength and clarion call for peaceful unity. Assured to be struck by a fresh die, APMEX seals the 2016 1 oz Silver Eagle (MintDirect® Premier Single) in packaging that handsomely displays and well protects this iconic specie.

Beautiful and love the sealed protective package the coins are in.

Everyone usually has heard of or seen a Silver Eagle and I wanted to invest in physical silver to add to my portfolio. I wanted the Direct Mint Silver Eagle for most value and the fact if I sold, people would recognize it readily.
