About Silver Eagle Sets
In 1986, after receiving authorization from Congress, the U.S. Mint unveiled the first of many visually striking American silver eagle coins, including special edition versions, which you can find packaged and preserved in silver eagle coin sets. These magnificent coins feature a Walking Liberty design, created by American sculptor Adolph A. Wienman, on their faces, and the Statue of Liberty on their obverse sides. Since 1986, these coins have commemorated important people, places, and events in American history. Today, coin collectors can purchase a variety of silver eagle sets on eBay from reliable sellers, including the U.S. Mint. While all silver eagle coin sets hold value, the 1986 silver eagle set, which marks the inaugural year of the silver coin production, is one of the most popular and valuable. These sets contain one-ounce proof coins, in a bullion finish, struck at the U.S. Mint in West Point, N.Y. Collectors will also enjoy the 25th anniversary silver eagle set, which contains a series of five stunning bullion-finished, uncirculated coins produced by the U.S. Mint in 2011. Only 100,000 complete sets were produced by the U.S. Mint, which makes these sets very rare and valuable.
