Why purchase the 2016 American Silver Eagle in its US Mint Display Box?
This 2016 American Silver Eagle provides you with the chance to share in the celebration of two important anniversaries, and it comes with a display box that is befitting of such a significant coin. The first significant anniversary related to this piece is the 30th anniversary of the American Silver Eagle, which was first issued in 1986. While that alone would be significant, 2016 is also the 100th anniversary of the design that appears on the obverse of the coin, Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty. That design was brought back for the Silver Eagle after it had previously proven so popular on the half dollar. Liberty, draped in the American flag, carries branches of laurel and oak. Those branches are powerful symbols, representing civilian and military honors, respectively. In the background, the setting sun’s rays serve to enhance the image. The Silver Eagle is collected more than any other bullion coin in the world, meaning that collectors and non-collectors alike will recognize it. Both its silver weight, 1 Troy oz., and its purity, .999, have the backing of the United States government. Pick up this coin as a beautiful display piece today.

2016 is a very special year for both of the Gold and Silver flagship bullion programs which began in 1986 and which will mark their 30th anniversary in 2016. Collectors are hoping the U.S. Mint will issue a special set for this occasion that includes a new, unique variety of each coin.
