Whether you're searching for a First Year of Issue 1986 U.S. Silver Eagle Dollar or the latest release, an uncirculated coin could be exactly what you're looking for, particularly when it comes to quality and value.
While some may call a brand new, legal tender Silver Eagle that's never entered circulation Mint State (MS) and others Uncirculated (UNC), the terms are interchangeable; both describe a coin direct from the Mint that shows no trace of everyday wear and tear.
Nearly all numismatists are on the hunt for graded Mint State Silver Eagles, not just because they're always in higher demand than non-graded coins, but because they typically demand significant premiums above their intrinsic precious metal value.
Judged on a 70 point scale, flawless and near-perfect coins encapsulated and graded by trusted third party grading companies Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) are highly sought-after.
At the top of the heap, an MS70 grade designates a state of absolute perfection that is sure to be the crowning glory of any assortment. But, if a perfect Silver Eagle is out of your reach, many experts consider an MS69 coin to be a smart choice - and a great value.
Whatever Silver Eagles you choose, count on MCM for full selection of Mint State Silver Eagles - from the highest graded coins from the U.S. Mint, to affordable past-year issues.
