This is the First Year of Issue of the beloved American Silver Eagle! The first year of issue of a coin is always highly desirable. Struck at the San Francisco Mint, this vintage piece has a perfect PR70 DCAM grade from PCGS! Since it's been over 35 years, the market has dried up making these super difficult to find, at a reasonable price. However, we only have 4 in perfect grade PR70 available at this GREAT price, so act fast because they WILL sell out!


  • Perfect grade
  • Obsolete piece
  • LOW price

1986 Silver Eagle History

The 1986 coin obverse features the Walking Liberty design used on the half dollar coins from 1916 to 1947 and was designed by Adolph Weinman. In this image, Lady Liberty is holding the American flag and a branch. 

The reverse side was designed by John Mercanti and has an iconic American eagle behind a shield. The design is patriotic, symbolizing America's freedom, peace, and pride. It also features thirteen stars, which form a triangle above the eagle’s head and represent America's original colonies. The Latin phrase ‘E Pluribus Unum’ is incorporated into the shield and means ‘Out of Many, One.’
