From placing a sixpence into a new bride's shoe to a shilling in a newborn's hand, the silver coin has always been a welcome gift to mark a special occasion. Many collectors and investors enjoy having the American Silver Eagle collection for their own but they also invest in them to give as gifts. There isn't a better tradition to begin than the gift of investment in one's future. Even as high as the mintages are, for the Silver Eagles, these coins never stop selling nor should they! At such a tempting rate, the American Silver Eagle series is just hanging from your fingertips!
Your 2005 American Silver Eagle naturally shimmers with the "newly minted" crisp finish of a brilliant uncirculated coin. Your one ounce of pure .999 silver is packaged in individual coin flips to ensure protection while shipping to you. A Grecian goddess is pictured on the obverse of the American Silver Eagle. This design of Lady Liberty originated from the most popular Walking Liberty half dollar design. Adolph A. Weinman is the sculptor responsible for this magnificent design and the design of many other famous works, such as the Mercury dime. On the Silver Eagle, Lady Liberty is a tall and slender figure, who walks with elegance and power. Her presence alone demands respect for the many sacrifices given so that the United States of America can maintain that liberty and freedom. The rising sun encroaches behind her, to offer the hope of a new day. The coin's year of mintage is also written beneath her gentle footsteps. The reverse displays the national seal; a large eagle being protected by a sturdy shield. The reverse also bears the coin's purity and weight for authentication purposes.
