The Silver American Eagle program was introduced in 1986 with a bullion and proof option, and each included only a 1 oz. weight. The burnished coin series was unveiled in 2006, running originally to 2008 before taking a two-year hiatus. The coins in this product listing are unique for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, these coins come from the first year of production following the two-year hiatus. Additionally, these coins are the first in the Burnished Silver American Eagle coin program produced somewhere other than the West Point Mint. Last but not least, these coins represent the lowest mintage of burnished coins in the series’ history.
Each burnished coin in this Silver.com product listing was given a perfect grade from the PCGS. Coins with a perfect grade still have their full, original luster and no contact marks, detracting flaw, or blemishes visible on the surface.
Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty depiction is featured on the obverse, along with the engraving of the year of minting. John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle is on the reverse, along with the metal content, weight, purity, and face value of the coin.
A special coining process is used by the United States Mint to produce these coins. Burnished blanks are hand loaded into the coining press before being struck by standard die casts multiple times, creating a unique appearance.
