Gainesville Coins is pleased to offer Brilliant Uncirculated 2012 American Silver Eagle Coins. Received by Gainesville Coins directly from the US Mint, these bullion coins are made from 1 oz of .999 silver. By law, US Silver Eagles can only be minted with US-mined silver. These beautiful coins are eligible for inclusion in a self-directed Precious Metals Silver IRA.
Starting in 2011, the San Francisco Mint resumed production of Silver Eagles, supplementing production at the West Point Mint. 2011 represented a record for Silver Eagle Sales, with just under 40 million sold, or 39,868,500, and demand continues to increase. It should be noted that Non-Proof Silver Eagles DO NOT have a mint mark, so bullion Silver Eagles minted in West Point and San Francisco are indistinguishable.

2012 Silver Eagle Front/Obverse
The obverse features a modified version of the famous “Walking Liberty” design of A.A. Weinman, first seen in 1916 on the US Half Dollar. Wearing a cape and gown fashioned in the manner of the American Flag, Liberty strides towards the sunrise. The word LIBERTY rings the edge of the upper half of the coin. The motto “In God We Trust” appears to the right of Liberty, and the date is under her feet.
2012 Silver Eagle Rear/Reverse
The reverse is artist John Mercanti’s interpretation of the Great Seal of the United States. The heraldic Bald Eagle with the Union Shield upon its chest holds an olive branch in one talon, and three arrows in the other. It grasps a ribbon with the motto “E Pluribus Unum” in its beak. Thirteen stars, representing the original Thirteen Colonies, are arranged in an inverted triangle above the eagle’s head. Around the upper edge of the 2012 American Silver Eagle is inscribed “United States of America”, while the lower edge bears the weight and denomination of the coin: “1 Oz Fine Silver - One Dollar.” To the right of the eagle’s tail are the initials of the artist.
