When purchasing Silver American Eagle coins, one of the most popular methods is by ordering tubes or “rolls.” Upon the coin being struck at the US Mint, they are immediately placed in plastic tubes as to protect their mint condition. Each tube contains 20 individual coins and have a green lid featuring the seal of the United States Mint. This means the coins found inside of the tube have never been touched by human hands and are therefore in brand new condition. Each singular Silver Eagle coin consists of 99.9% pure silver, weighs one troy ounce and also holds a face value in the United States of $1.
Not only is buying mint-sealed tubes a preferred method when making an initial investment, it is also a great way of storing the coins if you plan on putting them away for a while. They are easy to stack atop one another in constricted spaces such as home safes and they also serve as a form of protection, keeping each coin in their original BU condition.
As we only purchase our 2014 1 oz Silver American Eagles from certified distributors, each one of these tubes have been kept sealed just as it appeared from the US Mint when it came off the production line. Also note that all orders containing 25 tubes will be shipped in their mint-strapped Monster Boxes containing 500 coins.
