American Silver Eagles are among the most stunning coins ever produced. They are also fully backed by the U.S. government and are eligible for your self-directed IRA. If you don’t believe me, I’ve got proof – 2012 Proof Silver Eagles, that is.
Each 2012 Proof American Silver Eagle is comprised of 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and was struck numerous times to provide a quality finish that is unique to investors and collectors. Your coin will also arrive with a Certificate of Authenticity and a satin-lined velvet case with a protective capsule to ensure preservation.
The well-known obverse was designed by Adolph Weinman for the Walking Liberty Half Dollars that were in circulation for 31 years until 1947. Needing to rejuvenate coins of that era, a national competition was held among the nation’s top designers. Weinman’s depiction of a full-length Lady Liberty striding toward a brighter day while carrying oak and laurel branches with a rising sun in the distance became the beloved winner. Liberty was surrounded by stars and stripes and with the inscriptions of “LIBERTY” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
Walking Liberty was so popular, it became the obverse design for the American Silver Eagles when it was introduced in 1986 as well.
John Mercanti designed a spread-winged heraldic eagle protected by a shield specifically for the ASE’s reverse. The eagle carries arrows and an olive branch in its claws and a banner in its beak with the phrase “E PLURIBUS UNUM” inscribed, which means “Out of many, one.” Thirteen stars honoring the 13 colonies float above the bald eagle.
