2020 Burnished American Silver Eagle

We can't find products matching the selection.

 The American Silver Eagle series was first struck back in 1986 as the official silver bullion issue from the United States Mint.  The series is struck on 1 oz. .999 silver blanks, and has swiftly become one of the most popular and trusted annual programs from the Mint. The series is issued in three finishes: the popular bullion brilliant uncirculated finish, as well as the collector's Proof and Uncirculated, otherwise known as "Burnished," finishes.

Burnishing is a metal-on-metal polishing process that, when struck with the specially processed dies, results in the attractive, even, frosty appearance of this series. 

 A Beautifully Designed Coin

 The design used on the obverse of the Silver Eagle series is considered the most beautiful design ever struck in silver by the US Mint. Additionally, the series has used the same design since it was first issued. 


 The obverse features the Adolph A. Weinman "Liberty Walking" design from the famous 1916 US circulating half dollar series. Liberty is depicted walking with purpose shown striding over rocky American terrain. She holds laurel and oak, which represent success and strength, respectively. The rising sun silhouettes her from behind as the American Flag gives her warmth and comfort.


The reverse of the American Silver Eagle series was an original one, made specifically for the series by former United States Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti.  A Heraldic Eagle is displayed on the reverse. A shield protects his breast as he holds arrows and an olive branch. An inverted triangular field of thirteen stars appears over the eagle.

Why should you consider this issue for your collection?

 The "Burnished" or Uncirculated issues in the series regularly have lower mintages than any other ASEs issued, making this a compelling choice under normal circumstances.
