In 1986, the US Mint joined the silver bullion game with their introduction to American Silver Eagles. The US Mint resurrected the beloved Walking Liberty half dollar design to grace the obverse of every silver eagle ever made. Unlike other bullion coin collections, the American Silver Eagle stays true to tradition and doesn't change its design, front or back, ever. Collectors and investors enjoy the aspect of consistency the American Silver Eagle series offers and the excellent quality that is delivered in easy accessible coins. The popularity of this series only increases with every year, making the American Silver Eagle collection among the best of bullion series.
Your 1986 American Silver Eagle proof coin weighs one solid ounce of silver and sparkles with the perfect proof finish, which you can see your reflection in. Your coin is packaged in its original mint packaging, including original box and COA. The Lady Liberty walks gracefully across the obverse, with the rising sun encroaching behind her. The Lady's garb is a simple loose-fitting robe with an American flag draped over her narrow shoulders. The words, "Liberty," "In God We Trust," and the coin's date of mintage are also stamped on the obverse. The reverse reveals the US Coat of Arms; an eagle with wings sprawled out containing the banner labeled with "E pluribus unum," across the feathers. A large shield is also protecting the eagle and each of the eagle's talons are holding something symbolic. The right one is holding an olive branch to represent peace while the left one is holding arrows to represent the original 13 colonies. The reverse also bears the coin's weight and purity for validity reasons. Begin your journey of collecting the American Silver Eagle proof coins and enjoy the pride you feel investing in a prestigious collection.
