2016 30th Anniversary Silver American Eagle Proof 70 Coins

The U.S. Mint unveils the first-ever Silver Eagle with edge lettering! This special-edition Silver Eagle Proof marks the 30th Anniversary of the world's most popular coin.

The Silver American Eagle is the most popular silver coin in the world. First minted in 1986, this year marks 30th Anniversary for the coin. The U.S. Mint is releasing proof versions of the coin with a lettered edge to designate them as anniversary issues. Tom Jurkowsky, director of Corporate Communications of the U.S. Mint said, "The edge lettering required by the Act is a fitting tribute to the 30th Anniversary of the world's most popular silver coin." The bullion version of the coin will have the traditional reeded edges.

The U.S. Gold Bureau offers limited number of 2016 Silver American Eagle Proof 70 coins featuring an acid-free certification label. The acid-free labels ensure that it not deteriorate or erode over the lifetime of the coin and are hand-signed by Ed Moy, former director of the U.S. Mint. These coins will be highly sought after by investors and collectors. Each coin contains 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver.

Highlights of the Silver American Eagle Proof:
  • 30th Anniversary featuring commemorative lettered edge
  • Other anniversary edition proofs include the 1995-W, which now trades for more than $24,000.
  • The U.S. Mint usually releases Silver Eagle proofs much earlier in the year, so this year's late-release could lead to very low mintage figures.
  • 1 Troy oz of .999 pure silver

Silver American Eagle Proof 70 coins are available as single coins and a full Date Run featuring one of each Silver American Eagle minted since 1986 including 1995 W Silver American Eagle.
