It wasn’t more than ten years ago that we met with former U.S. Mint Director Donna Pope. She spoke with pride about what she considered to be her greatest achievement as Director under President Reagan: Creation of the American Eagle silver and gold bullion coin programs, the first of their kind in our nation’s history. The purpose of these coins was to give people the opportunity to own physical silver and gold in a form certified for weight and purity by the U.S. Mint. While the bullion coin program was a signal success, nobody took into account the profound effect it would have on the collector market.
Silver Eagles = Today’s Morgan Dollars In the 1800s and early 1900s, the U.S. Morgan Silver Dollar was struck year upon year at various mints and circulated at face value. Their core value was in their precious metal content. However, in top grades, Morgan Silver Dollars can sell today for tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars each! For the same reason, many collectors today see the Silver Eagle series as a literal “ground floor” opportunity to acquire the top-grade coins as they are released. They started submitting Silver Eagles to the leading independent coin grading services, such as Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), praying that the coins would come back with the highest possible grade: MS70 (all Uncirculated coins are graded on a point system from a low of 60 to a high of 70, with 70 representing flawless perfection). Of all the Silver Eagles produced by the U.S. Mint in 2011, less than one out of every 788 earned the NGC MS70 grade!
MS70 = In the rarified atmosphere of MS70, Silver Eagles have soared to market prices that I can only characterize as surreal. Consider this: MS70 Silver Eagles have been selling for truly stratospheric prices. Here are just a few eye-popping examples: 1996 MS70 Silver Eagle $5,340 1988 MS70 Silver Eagle $2,660 1991 MS70 Silver Eagle $3,910 1994 MS70 Silver Eagle $1,660
It Just Keeps Getting Better I was thrilled to lock up a guaranteed supply of Perfect Gem MS70 2012 Silver Eagles from a primary distributor who gets them directly from the U.S. Mint. (This is a coin you cannot buy directly from the U.S. Mint). Moreover, every coin is certified and encapsulated by NGC, one of the
top two firms for grading coins. But better yet, because we received the very first coins released from the mint, they all have the value-enhancing “First Releases” designation.
What Does “First
Releases” Mean? NGC designates only those coins it certifies as having been released during the first 30 days of issue as First Releases. Collectors place a premium on these coins because they are struck from freshly made dies, which is thought to impart superior quality. Only a miniscule number of the mintage gets the First Releases pedigree - so it can turbo charge the value of an already valuable MS70 coin.
