Why order this American 1996 Silver Eagle?

This 1996 Silver American Eagle is a key date for collectors of this iconic series, as it has the lowest mintage of any bullion issue. What's more is that perfect pieces are extremely rare, making this Mint State 69 piece the best accessible grade to those with limited budgets. The coin was also part of the tenth-anniversary issue. It was struck from .999 fine silver at the Philadelphia Mint.

Traditional Walking Liberty design by Adolph Weinman

On the obverse of this coin is the Walking Liberty design of Adolph Weinman, which made its debut on the half dollar. The iconic image features Liberty draped in the American flag and wearing a Phrygian cap as she carries symbols of civilian and military honors, laurel and oak branches. To the left, the morning sun rises beneath her extended right hand.

John Mercanti created the reverse design, which he modeled off of the Great Seal of the United States. The image consists of thirteen stars above the head of an eagle, which guards a union shield. In its claws, the eagle holds arrows and an olive branch, which symbolize military readiness and a desire for peace.

Virtually flawless Mint State 69

This coin received a grade of Mint State 69 from the experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That means that, while it does have at least one imperfection, any such flaws are minuscule.
