However, you will not receive the coins with the presentation box or Certificate of Authenticity from the mint. This is a capsule-only, random-year listing for Burnished Silver Eagles.
In a Silver.com random-year listing, the coins you receive are chosen once your payment is processed. We will select your coins once your payment clears. We cannot guarantee a particular date mark on the coins you receive and we are not able to hand-pick various different date marks if you choose to buy several coins.
On the obverse side of 1 oz Burnished Silver Eagles, you will find the inspiring image of Walking Liberty. Her figure is in left-profile relief as she walks from right to left across the coin’s design field. With the American flag over her shoulders, Liberty marches with oak and laurel branches in her left hand while her right hand is outstretched toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse face of 1 oz Burnished Silver American Eagles features the heraldic eagle of the United States. The bald eagle is set with the heraldic national shield on its chest, arrows in one talon, and an olive branch in the other. The triangular cluster of 13 stars overhead represents the original American colonies.
Burnished Silver Eagles typically have the lowest mintage figures in the series. The 2006-2008 coins still boast the three highest mintage figures in the collection and represent the best three-year period of sales for this version of the Silver Eagle. After a 2009-2010 layoff, the Burnished Silver Eagles returned in 2011, but mintage figures have been half that of the average figures from prior to the two-year halt.
