Why purchase this magnificently graded 1986 American Silver Eagle bullion coin?

Breathtaking Beauty of the American Silver Eagle

Obverse: On the obverse, Lady Liberty is depicted draped in an American flag while walking towards the rising sun. It is inscribed “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “1986.” This time-honored rendition of Liberty first appeared on the 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, designed by acclaimed sculptor Adolph A. Weinman. 

Reverse: A heraldic eagle is centered on the reverse, clutching an olive branch and a bundle of arrows. Surrounding inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” “ONE DOLLAR” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” This powerful eagle graphic, designed by the U.S. Mint’s 12th Chief Engraver John Mercanti, is the primary defining element of the classic Type-1 variety Silver Eagle issued from 1986 until mid-2021.
