Ed Moy Silver Eagle Date Run

31-Coin Collection

Featured in NGC boxes and protective slab cases, this Silver Eagle Set includes a complete 31-coin set of the Silver Eagles from 1986 to 2017. In 2016, the U.S. Mint released proof versions of the coin with a lettered edge to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Silver American Eagle. Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine pure Silver and are graded in perfect Proof 70 condition by NGC.

This set features the proof collector versions of the official United States bullion coins and are only available in the one ounce size. American Eagle Silver Proof Coins from 1986 to 1992 were minted at the United States Mint at San Francisco bearing the "S" mint mark, 1993 to 2000 were minted at the United States Mint at Philadelphia bearing the "P" mint mark and 2001 to date minted at the United States Mint at West Point bearing the "W" mintmark.

1995-W Silver American Eagle
(The Key Date)

The 1995-W Proof Silver Eagle was included as a “complimentary” piece in the special five-coin set honoring the 10th anniversary of the American Eagle bullion coin program. Only 30,125 were produced, and only as part of a larger 5-coin American Eagle set that included 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 ounce Gold Eagles and a 1 ounce Silver Eagle - all West Point and all proofs. The 1 ounce Silver Eagle is actually worth more than the 1 ounce Gold Eagle because of the scarcity of the coin's West Point minting.

The 1995-W Proof Silver Eagle is one of the most unique coins ever minted by the U.S. Mint and with such a low mintage, it remains the most coveted key coin in the U.S. Mint program.

Coin Facts

The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States. It was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. It is struck only in the one-troy ounce size, which has a nominal face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. It is authorized by Title II of Public Law 99-61 (Liberty Coin Act, approved July 9, 1985) and codified as 31 U.S.C. 5112(e)-(h). Its content, weight, and purity are certified by the United States Mint. The Silver Eagle has been produced at three mints: the Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, and the West Point Mint.

The Obverse of the coin is recycled. The design was originally used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar which was in circulation from 1916 to 1947. The reverse was designed by John Mercanti and portrays a heraldic eagle behind a shield; the eagle grasps an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left talon, echoing the Great Seal of the United States; above the eagle are thirteen five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies.

The American Silver Eagle bullion coin may be used to fund Individual Retirement Account investments.
