The Silver American Eagle coin is the first official silver bullion coin issued by the United States Mint. The silver eagle was first released in 1986 and was authorized by the Liberty Coin Act which was approved the year prior. The Silver American eagle coins are one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. The face value is $1 as issued by the Mint but is worth far more in pure silver. In addition to the bullion coin, the U.S. Mint also produced a proof version for coin collectors. The Silver Eagle has been produced at three mints over the years: Philadelphia Mint, San Francisco Mint, and the West Point Mint.
The 2019 Silver American Eagle Proof 70 coin will come in perfect Proof 70 condition graded by NGC. Proof coins graded in Proof 70 condition means it has no post-production imperfections at 5x the magnification. Each label will also be hand signed by the former U.S. Mint Director, Ed Moy.
