1996 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coin
American Silver Eagles may be the best-sold series among the most popular silver coins. The US Mint has maintained regular editions since the program’s first release.
The 1996 issue, the 11th of the program, has a particular characteristic that makes it unique. It had the lowest mintage of American Silver Eagle bullion coins, with only 3,603,386 units struck.
A restricted number of coins available in the market tends to contribute to their value because of their potential for rarity over the years, making collectors crave these particular coins. And investors with a diversified investment portfolio would enjoy the opportunity of acquiring such kind of asset. They could potentially turn a larger profit in the future.

The Silver Eagle Design
As a standard for American Eagles, the obverse showcases the Walking Liberty by Adolph A. Weinman. The original image dated back to 1916 and stamped the Half Dollar Coin until 1947. The US Mint rescued this beloved image to be the American Eagles motif, and it has not changed since release.
In the image, Lady Liberty has the American flag draped on her shoulder, and it flies as she walks towards the sun's rays. She carries oak and laurel branches in one hand and stretches the other in a warm welcome.
The word “LIBERTY” appears on the upper rim, while the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” lies aside, and the year of mintage is on the bottom.
The reverse design is Chief Engraver John Mercanti’s creation. It depicts the Heraldic Eagle with wings outstretched, with the National Shield in front of its breast. The animal carries arrows and olive branches on its talons and a banner with the inscription “E PLURIBUS UNUM” on its beak.
Thirteen pointed stars representing the original colonies form a triangle shape above the Eagle. The country’s name arches above on the outer rim, while the coin’s data regarding face value, weight, metal content, and purity is on the bottom.
1996 Silver Eagles Production Line
Despite not exhibiting a mint mark, three important mints have produced American Eagles Silver Bullion coins on behalf of the US Mint: San Francisco, West Point, and Philadelphia. They have taken turns minting these coins and are responsible for the uncountable Silver Eagles available in the market.
The 1996 edition is a Philadelphia Mint production. Actually, the whole production of Bullion American Silver Eagles from 1986-1998 was in charge of the Philadelphia branch.
