Product Description

1986 American Silver Eagle Coin

The 1986 American Silver Eagle coin was the first ever release in the popular American Silver Eagle bullion coin program.

This is an essential coin for anyone building a collection of the full series of Silver Eagles. No collection is complete without this debut year coin.

This was the year in which the United States Mint launched the American Eagle coins as the nation’s official bullion. 

Only 5,393,005 coins were minted in the Brilliant Uncirculated finish. Finding coins in mint state condition is becoming more difficult as premiums for collectors who view this as an investment that continues to appreciate.

With the scarcity and demand combined, this coin is likely to continue to increase in value over time with premiums far higher than the intrinsic value.

1986 American Silver Eagle 1 oz Coin Details:

  • Minted with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver.
  • Manufactured with a debut year of 1986
  • Obverse: Walking liberty design inscribed with the year of minting
  • Reverse:Type 1 design

This is the premier bullion coin in this series and is highly sought after by collectors and investors. These coins can often be sold to the right buyer at a signifiant premium over spot.
