Sparked by the silver bullion craze, the US Mint decided to produce a silver bullion coin every year for their avid coin collectors and investors. In 1986, the first American Silver Eagle was made, taking a step up from the Eisenhower dollar of the 70's. Although the obverse design never changes, the desire to own these prized beauties has only grown throughout the US and the world. Low mintages is not the first thought that comes to mind when thinking of the American Silver Eagle but even though there are a lot made every year, certain years are becoming harder and harder to find, thus increasing their numismatic value. It's a phenomenon that has changed dealing in the silver bullion industry and that keeps collectors and investors a like coming back for more.
Your 1993 American Silver Eagle is guaranteed, by the US Mint, to be one pure ounce of .999 fine silver and is packaged in a coin flip for extra protection. Your coin shines with the flawless matte finish of a brilliant uncirculated coin that still looks "freshly minted" even though it's over 20 years old. The obverse design displays a tall and slender Lady Liberty, gracefully walking over the land of the free. She is clothed in a light weight robe that gently flows with every step she takes and her shoulders are draped with the American flag. One arm is outstretched and inviting while the other is carrying a bundle of branches. The obverse is stamped with "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the coin's year of mintage as well. The reverse carries the national seal of the United States of America, a regal eagle being guarded by a large shield, each talon holding something. The coin's purity and weight are also featured on the reverse for validity purposes.
