Each year since 1986, the U.S. Mint has produced a limited edition of the world's most popular silver bullion coin -- the legendary Silver Eagle Dollar. The coin is minted in one ounce of .9993 pure silver, so it is the largest, heaviest, and purest silver coin in U.S. history. And the coin offered here is one of the finest known, because it has been independently graded as Mint State 69 (abbreviated MS-69). It is as close to perfection as possible!
The Silver Eagle Dollar is a legal tender United States coin. It has a nominal face value of One Dollar, although its silver value and collector value far exceed its face value.
The 2006 Silver Eagle Dollar is destined to be more in demand than any other year's coin. Each year the demand increases from collectors around the world -- but the supply of silver from the national stockpile is dangerously low, so it is uncertain whether the U.S. Mint will be able to strike enough coins to meet the demand. This fact alone makes it imperative that collectors acquire this top-quality 2006 coin now. MS-69 coins are hard enough to find when the supply is good, but this year's MS-69 coin could be one of the hardest to find in the entire series.
All coins are graded on a 70-point scale, with 70 being absolute perfection. It is virtually impossible to find a coin in perfect MS-70, and the few Silver Eagle Dollars from previous years that have achieved this ultimate grade can sell for up to $500 or more.
This coin is in near-perfect MS-69 condition. It is almost perfect, and it is the highest affordable grade possible. A coin of this quality has absolutely NO visible flaws, so it looks perfect to the naked eye. To certify that it is one of the highest graded 2006 Silver Eagle Dollars, it has been independently graded as MS-69 by a team of coin experts. The grading company has no connection with PCH or with FCM, so it is a totally impartial opinion. The coin is also encapsulated in a tamper-proof holder to protect its condition for the future.
Most collectors will never even see a coin of this exceptional quality. It is a rarely-seen high-quality example of one of America's best-loved and most beautiful coins!
