The American Silver Eagle collection is irresistible to any silver investor or collector, since it was the first silver bullion coin in the US. With unlimited mintages, the American Silver Eagle is still a highly popular coin, maintaining its loyal collectors, as much as gaining new ones every year. One way to make this iconic coin more valuable is to invest in a certified version. Certified Silver Eagles carry a higher numismatic value, than the non-certified ones, and increase in value over time. Dealers are also more prone to buying a certified coin over a non-certified, since its grade is validated through a grading agency. NGC is one of the top grading agencies and is revered for its impeccable grading techniques and accuracy.
Your Certified Uncirculated Silver Eagle 1989 MS69 has earned one of the highest grades a coin can receive and is preserved in an official NGC holder. The reverse reveals the US Seal: a large eagle with outstretched wings and large shield covering its chest. Eagles have always been representative of power and authority and many nations have used the bird to signify such. 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. This coin is what collectors call a "brown label," a certified coin without special features, such as Early Release or minted in San Francisco.
