The 2013 American Silver Eagle was produced at both the West Point and San Francisco Mints. But, since the Silver Eagle does not carry a mint mark, usually the only way to know which Mint struck an ASE is to buy a mint-sealed "monster box"
However, Gainesville Coins comes to your rescue with these Certified EARLY RELEASE 2013-S 1 oz American Silver Eagle graded a perfect MS70 by NGC (Bridge Label). These coins have not only been certified straight out of a mint-sealed box as coming from the San Francisco Mint, they have earned the "Early Release" designation by being submitted for grading within the first 30 days of production, and have been graded and guaranteed a perfect MS70 by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, one of the oldest and most-trusted names in third-party coin grading.
To put the icing on this already unbelievable coin, NGC has printed the grade and certifications on a special Golden Gate Bridge label, along with the unique identification number. These coins have been sealed at NGC in a protective tamper-resistant plastic casing (nicknamed a "slab") to preserve their beauty and ensure the coin remains with its proper label.
The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States, and as legal tender, its weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States government. One of the world's most popular silver investment coins, the U.S. Mint has sold over 300 million ASEs since the program began in 1986.
The obverse of the coin brings the revered 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar design of Adolph A. Weinman into the modern era. In this scene, Lady Liberty walks across the plains towards the mountains, her hand outstretched in blessing. Draped in the American flag, she carries a bough of oak and one of laurel in the crook of her arm, signifying the accomplishments of the United States in peace and war. The legend LIBERTY arches over the scene, with the motto "In God We Trust" to the right of Liberty and the year-date 2013 below her sandal.
The reverse features the 1986 design of John Mercanti, based on the Great Seal of the United States. An American Bald Eagle in heraldic pose bears the Union Shield on its breast, and grasps an olive branch in one talon, and a bundle of arrows in the other. This represents the nation's preference for peace, but readiness for war. The eagle holds a ribbon in its beak, emblazoned with the motto of the United States: "E Pluribus Unum" From Many, One.
