Today, these coins have become the bedrock of the collecting world, coveted by millions.
In top grades, Morgan Silver Dollars can sell for tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars each.
Mainstream collectors embraced the Silver Eagle Series when it began in 1986.
People realized the ground floor opportunity to acquire the top-grade coins as they were released.
Some Silver Eagle Collectors submitted the Dollar Coins to one of the leading independent grading services, the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
Some coins came back with the highest-possible grade: MS70. (All Un circulated coins are graded on a point system from a low of 60 to a high of 70, with 70 representing flawless perfection). Silver Eagles had made the grade!
Today, almost every Silver Eagle struck since 1986 is worth a small amount over and above the market price of an ounce of silver. However, for those coins that earned the top grade of MS70, it is quite a different story.
For all of the Silver Eagles produced in 2010 by the U.S. Mint, about one in every 700 produced earned the NGC MS70 grade!
Those MS70 Silver Eagles now represent wealth producing
opportunities for fortunate collectors.
Here are just a few examples of what the MS70 graded
Silver Eagle Coins are now valued at by Collectors:-
1988 MS70 Silver Eagle $5,560
1994 MS70 Silver Eagle $1,660
1996 MS70 Silver Eagle $4,940
2000 MS70 Silver Eagle $3,750
