First issued in 1986 and struck with one full ounce of 99.9% silver, the American Eagle Silver Dollar was the first silver bullion coin whose weight and silver content were guaranteed by the U.S. government. It quickly became the standard by which all silver bullion coins are measured.
The American Eagle Silver Dollar has become a staple in millions of collections and vaults. The healthy appetite for Silver Eagles, coupled with a volatile worldwide economic climate, is creating a frenzy that could make the 2019 coin difficult to find.
What most collectors don’t know is that a very small number of the first coins released each year are set aside, fiercely sought after for their Early Issue status. Danbury Mint offers the rare chance to own one of these stunning coins in exceptionally high quality.
The coin you will receive will:
- Be certified and authenticated by PCGS, protected in an official, sonically sealed holder with a label attesting to its exclusive status.
- Bear the important “Early Issue” designation, guaranteeing that it was released within the first 20 business days of the U.S. Mint’s initial issue.
- Be one of the highest-quality coins produced by the U.S. Mint, its “MS69” condition representing the near-perfect uncirculated 69 grade.
- Be a limited edition, one of fewer than 400 available from Danbury Mint.
