One unique reason for owning a silver bullion coin is the amount of history contained in one simple ounce of silver. Like the US, most countries have their own silver dollar that is marked with that country's insignia, historical etchings, and whatever else that is important to that nation. The American Silver Eagle displays much of the history of the US and is the perfect way to mark a special occasion for loved ones. The US Coat of Arms, the Walking Liberty, and the 13 stars to symbolize the original 13 colonies are just a few reasons why the American Silver Eagle isn't just about the silver but the history that comes along with it.
Your 1998 American Silver Eagle comes glimmering with the perfect finish of a brilliant uncirculated coin. Your coin contains one solid ounce of .999 pure silver and is packaged in a coin flip for extra protection. Lady Liberty graces the obverse of every American Silver Eagle and rightfully so! The elegance she carries along with the strength of a warrior is beautifully depicted on this coin. Originally the design for the Walking Liberty half dollar, the Lady Liberty on the American Silver Eagle dollar has been revived to keep the encouragement of liberty and freedom continued for years to come! The famous phrase, "In God We Trust," the word, "Liberty," and the coin's date of mintage. The reverse displays the national seal, an eagle standing proudly with its wings outstretched. The eagle’s body is covered by a shield and each of its talons are grasping an object. The right talon is clenching an olive branch to represent a peaceful yet powerful nation and the left talon is holding 13 arrows to symbolize the 13 original colonies. The reverse is also stamped with the coin's purity and weight for authentication purposes.
