Total Mintage = 79,640. The History of 1-oz Silver American Eagle Coins.
1-oz Silver American Eagle coins feature a design on the obverse that is a modification of Adolph A. Weinmans Lady Liberty draped in the American Flag, walking toward the dawn of a new day.Silver coins depict a classic design that made it one of the most beloved modern American coins. It was revived for U. Silver coins decades later on the American Silver Eagle. One of the biggest stories in the coin industry at the moment is the discovery of 79,640 American Silver Eagle Supplemental dollars struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 2015. The discovery of these coins was only made as a result of Coin World magazine and the coin grading firm NGC, filing a Freedom of Information Act Law suit against the United States Mint. The United States Mint was forced to reveal their existence! The United States Mint was forced to reveal the existence of 79,640 coins struck at Philadelphia, the lowest bullion strike coins in the 31-year history of the series. There have been several times when the Mint had to suspend sales because it could not keep up with the demand. In 2009 the Mint actually cancelled the production of Silver Eagle Proof coins because enough high-quality silver planchets (coin blanks), could not be sourced to strike the coins on. To meet demand for Silver Eagles that are mass produced by the West Point Mint branch, the Mint retooled the San Francisco Mint branch and began issuing coins. These coins called Supplemental or Emergency dollars and were quickly snapped up by collectors. It has now been revealed that in 2015 a total of 79,640 Silver Eagles were produced by the Philadelphia Mint.
Unlike Proof strike Silver Eagles that have a W for West Point, S for San Francisco or P for Philadelphia mint mark to show where they were minted. Bullion strike Silver Eagles have no mint marks.
They can only be identified through the packaging and serial numbers at the U. From a total of 108 million coins produced, the Freedom of Information Law Suit revealed that just 79,640 coins came from Philadelphia.
They were identified through their 5-digit serial numbers that began with the number 5.
