1986 Proof Silver Eagle in Original Govt. Packaging
When the very first Silver American Eagles rolled off the presses in 1986 they were an instant hit with the American public. Today, Silver
Eagles have become the world's #1 favorite solid silver investment coin. Beautifully designed and minted from 1 full troy oz .999 fine silver, American Silver Eagles are more popular than ever, especially the Proof versions of this coin which are struck in much lower quantities than the regular bullion varieties.
The 1986 issue is a key date because it is the oldest Silver Eagle from the very first year these historic coins were issued. The Proof form of this coin is the highest quality made by the U.S. Government. Proof coins are unlike regular U.S. coins because they are struck at least twice on highly polished coin blanks to bring out the mirrored background and high-relief images. Their exquisite beauty and relative rarity makes them highly sought-after by collectors.
The obverse of the coin features the iconic Liberty Walking design, created in 1916 by Adolph Weinmann and originally used for the stunning Walking Liberty Half Dollar. The reverse was designed in 1986 by John Mercanti and features a Heraldic Eagle and 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies. Each 1986 Proof Silver Eagle is in original government packaging with a Certificate of Authenticity.
