Imagine holding a piece of US history in the palm of your hand! The Proof American Silver Eagle collection represents more than just one ounce of the finest and purest silver, it reminds us where we started as a nation. Adolph A. Weinman is the German American sculptor responsible for the historical Walking Liberty design that was featured on every half dollar between 1916-1947. Weinman's works of art are a significant part of US history and are scattered throughout the country today. Another familiar work of the sculptor's is the Mercury dime, which was the dime in circulation from 1916-1945. The US Coat of Arms is also included on the silver eagle, represented what the country stands for as a whole. Every patriot should own a silver eagle collection and take pride in the history that has made this country what it is.
Your 1998 Proof Silver Eagle is guaranteed, by the US Mint, to weigh one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. Your coin glimmers with the fresh, shiny proof finish and is protected by an airtight capsule. Your coin comes in original mint packaging, with the initial mint box and Certificate of Authenticity. The "P" mintmark is branded on the proof coin to prove it was minted at the US Mint in Philadelphia. The reverse portrays a large eagle, donned with a shield of metal covering its puffed breast. "E pluribus unum," the infamous Latin phrase meaning "One from many," is scripted on a banner across the eagle's spread wings. The obverse showcases Lady Liberty as a Grecian goddess, delicate but unafraid. She is dressed as a soldier from long ago, a loose fitted toga is draped around her tall and slender frame. The coin's date of mintage is also stamped underneath the Lady's feet. With such excellent packaging, history, and quality bullion, the Proof American Silver Eagle shouldn't be a collection you overlook!
