The Silver Eagle coin captures the grace and elegance of Sculptor-Engraver Adolph A. Weinman's celebrated Walking Liberty design. The obverse features Liberty striding toward the sunrise, draped in the Stars and Stripes and carrying branches of laurel and oak in her arms to symbolize both civil and military glory. The reverse design, by United States Mint Sculptor/Engraver John Mercanti, features a striking heraldic eagle with shield, olive branch in the right talon and arrows in the left. An interesting thing to note is that bullion strike Silver Eagles bear no mintmarks indicating which U.S. Mint facility produced the coins, therefore bullion Silver Eagles minted in West Point and San Francisco respectively are indistinguishable. The white mint straps on 2020 boxes read "United States Mint".
American Silver Eagle bullion coins contain 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver, weighing in at 31.10 grams. Because the Silver Eagle has a face value of $1 and is a legal-tender bullion coin with its weight, content, and purity guaranteed by the United States government, this coin is eligible to be held in individual retirement accounts (IRAs).
"Should I leave the straps on my Mint Sealed Monster Box?"
Bullion strike Silver Eagles such as these bear no mintmarks on the individual coins indicating which U.S. Mint facility produced them, therefore bullion Silver Eagles minted in West Point and San Francisco respectively are indistinguishable if you remove them from the mint-sealed box. The only way these coins can be sold as 2020-(S) to retain their collectability, is to keep them sealed in the box with the serial number intact. This is the number one reason we recommend leaving your monster box sealed with mint straps intact. Even with West Point coins, buying and storing Silver Eagles in mint sealed monster boxes has a few advantages including: a.) you get the best price when buying in bulk quantity and b.) the coins are guaranteed to be untouched and in pristine, mint condition. The latter is especially important in the event you decide to sell your Silver Eagles since bullion coin dealers, such as ourselves, tend to pay a higher price for silver coins in sealed boxes than they do for the same quantity of coins that are not in a sealed box. If you have any questions about these coins or the purchasing process, feel free to call us toll-free and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
