Silver American Eagle Proof 70 Coins

THE PRIDE OF THE U.S. MINT

The first Silver American Eagle was released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. Each coin is struck from one Troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. Over the years, the Silver Eagle has been produced at three mint locations: Philadelphia, San Francisco Mint, and West Point.

The obverse of the coin is actually “recycled,” as it 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 grasping an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. Above the eagle are 13 five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies.

Investment Grade Coins

Certified coins in perfect “70” condition are considered actual “museum quality.” With their beautiful finish, flawless condition and rarity, they are preferred by both collectors and investors. Since they are valued for their rarity, not their weight, they are not subject to the ups and downs of the commodities market, which has made their value more stable over time than silver bullion alone. The U.S. Gold Bureau recommends these coins as a long-term store of value, to help protect your portfolio from turbulent economic times.

Bush for over five years and assisted with the transition to the new U.S. Department of Homeland Security after September 11, 2001. The U.S. Mint sold over a $1 billion in numismatic collectibles and struck over 16 billion coins in Moy’s first year as Director. During his tenure as leader of the U.S. Mint, the financial crisis, and recession spurred an unprecedented demand for gold and silver bullion.

San Francisco Mint Series (1986 - 1992)

Preserving the Past, Saving the Future

Opened in 1854 to serve the gold mines of the California Gold Rush, the San Francisco Mint turned $4 million in gold bullion coins in its first year. The new Mint was opened in 1937 after it quickly outgrew its first building. In 1968, after a 13-year hiatus, it took over most proof coinage production from the Philadelphia Mint, but continued striking a supplemental circulating coinage from 1968 through 1974.

Philadelphia Mint Series (1993 - 2000)

Ye Ole Mint, A Rich Legacy

The Coinage Act of 1792, which led to creation of the United States Mint, was entered into law on April 2. At that time, Philadelphia was our nation’s capital, therefore the first mint facility was built there. The Mint Act also instituted a decimal system based on a dollar unit; specified weights, metallic composition and fineness; and required each United States coin feature an impression emblematic of liberty.

West Point Mint Series (2001 - 2017)

Tradition Becomes Our Security

Erected in 1937 as the West Point Bullion Depository, this was originally a storage facility for silver bullion and was nicknamed “The Fort Knox of Silver.” From 1973 to 1986, West Point produced cents, and in 1980 began striking gold medallions. Shortly afterward, approximately 20 billion dollars worth of gold was stored in its vaults, making it second only to Fort Knox for gold storage.
