The American Silver Eagle Coin

The obverse of the American silver eagle may seem familiar to experienced coin collectors: it is the American Silver Eagle – the 1-ounce silver ingot coin that is normally bought, sold, and traded. The first Silver Eagles in the value of 1 dollar were dated and introduced in the USA in 1986 at the mint.

This beautiful silver coin has been available in the United States Mint since 1986, just one year after the coin was minted. You now have the option to purchase this coin for your collection as one of 34 coins is in this set. The proof Silver American Eagle is the second most popular coin of its kind in the collection of the US Mint.

Silver Eagle Design

On the obverse, the Adolph A. Weinman “Walking Liberty” is depicted, which graced half the US dollar from 1916 to 1947.

On the reverse, the American Silver Eagle, the symbol of the United States of America. Questions about the design of this coin or another Silver Eagle from this series can be directed to the Silver Eagles 1986 website.

The Cost of a Silver Eagle    

The starting price for the Silver American Eagle 1986 Silver Eagle Set is about $60, with the most expensive Silver Eagle sold for a price of 60% more. If the Silver Eagle album is missing on this coin, you can expect to pay 60 dollars or more for it. Certified Silver Eagles from 1996 sell for an average of 50-60 dollars more than their 1996 counterparts.

American Silver Eagles, which were bought as an investment in ingots, can be bought from a reputable dealer for less than the price of a Silver Eagle. Normally, a Silver Eagle will be priced from $1,000 to $2,500 for a w-proof Silver Eagle, and only $500 to $600 for an unproof Silver Eagle. 

The 1995 Silver Eagle may have been a disadvantage at the time, but when you think of the well – out – of – date American Silver Eagle, you often forget that you put yourself between the two most sought-after Silver Eagles. Both are valuable and it can be difficult to not have such significant coins if a person is a collector. For collectors of American Silver Eagle, the West Point-minted Silver Eagle is the “most valuable” among its kind, with an average price of $1,500. The 1995 w-proof Silver Eagle, certified PR – PF70 from leading third-party valuation services, will fetch north of $10,000. 

Silver Eagle Minting Companies

Only 30 of these 125 coins were produced and minted at West Point in 1986, just a few months after the 1995 release of the Silver Eagle. 

All American Silver Eagles bear the “S” sign, which indicates that the coin was minted in the US mint San Francisco 

In 2007 and 2008, the United States Mint made slight changes to the reverse design. The coin, which was not circulating in 2008, was inadvertently struck with an inverted die from 2007, which resulted in a punching error. It is known that the 2008 appears on a slightly different reverse than the one that appeared on the Silver Eagles in 2007.

Over the years, they have become scarce and rarer, leading to rising premiums. As a result, the 1986 American Eagle silver coin has the potential to increase in value over time.
