In 1986, the popular and world-renowned American Silver Eagle was first minted. This coin not only grabbed the attention of avid coin collectors but it also changed the silver bullion industry. The American Silver Eagle contains one troy ounce of pure .999 silver, thus also attracting bullion investors to this remarkable coin. Although the US Mint produced 5,393,005 coins in 1986, the Silver Eagle still comes with a high premium whether you are looking to buy or sell. Because of this fact, the American Silver Eagles remain the most popular minted bullion coin in the US. When you order an American Silver Eagle, you are guaranteed by the US Mint to receive a pure silver bullion coin to grow your coin collection.
Your 1986 American Silver Eagle is finished with the finest strike a brilliant uncirculated coin has ever seen! Your coin glimmers with a "freshly struck" patina that has literally stood the test of time. Since your coin is in brilliant uncirculated condition, there should be no scratch marks on the face of the coin. The obverse design was inspired by Adolph A. Weinman's famous design on the Walking Liberty half dollar from 1916-1947. The Walking Liberty design was chosen, due to its popularity by being the most popular image on a US coin in coinage history. This iconic image graces the obverse of every American Silver Eagle; Lady Liberty is delicately draped in a loose fitting dress as she holds dearly some branches in her arm and the US flag over her shoulders. "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the date of mintage are stamped on the obverse as well. The reverse reveals the US Seal: a large eagle with outstretched wings, talons holding branches and arrows, and a shield to protect its chest. If you are looking to start your American Silver Eagle collection, begin with the beauty that started it all!
