Why add the 1996 1 oz. .999 fine Silver Eagle Gem BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) to your collection?

The lowest mintage for an American Silver Eagle bullion coin is the 1996 Silver Eagle, at 3,603,386 coins. This fact makes the 1996 1 oz. .999 fine Silver Eagle in Gem BU (Brilliant Uncirculated) condition a great addition to your stack. This mintage number is under 10% of the mintage from the totals of many recent years.

The American Silver Eagle was first minted in 1986 by the U.S. Mint, and is recognized by numismatic collectors and bullion stackers for its production quality and government backing.

This design by Adolph Weinman is among the most beloved and recognized in American coinage designs. The obverse features Lady Liberty walking toward a sunrise with her right arm outstretched, representing the spreading of Liberty, hope, and a brighter future for all. She is surrounded by the Stars and Stripes as she clutches branches of laurel and oak in her left hand.

John Mercanti of the U.S. Mint created the reverse design, featuring an iconic rendering of the American Eagle and shield design. The Eagle clutches arrows and an olive branch in its claws, while appearing beneath 13 five-pointed stars, which represent the original colonies.

Happy Customer
The on-line purchase was easy. The price was very good compared to another company. The delivery was free and very quick. The quality of the coin has every appearance of being what MCM claims. I've made another purchase from them since and will continue to use them in the future.
