The 1990 American Silver Eagle: A Numismatic Gem and Investor's Delight

The 1990 American Silver Eagle emerges as a notable piece within the distinguished series launched by the United States Mint in 1986. This series has swiftly ascended as a favored choice among both collectors and investors, with the 1990 edition upholding the high standards set by its predecessors.

Celebrated for its .999 fine silver purity, impeccable craftsmanship, and the Mint's unwavering commitment to excellence, each American Eagle silver dollar coin is a coveted treasure for those passionate about silver.

While it holds a nominal face value of one dollar, the real worth of these silver coins far exceeds this figure, positioning them as a preferred option over typical silver bullion coins.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: Crafted from .999 fine silver, the 1990 American Silver Eagle achieves a purity level of 99.9%, attracting both numismatists and investors interested in precious metals. This coin is also eligible for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), providing a robust choice for retirement savings enhancement.

  • Weight: In line with the series' specifications, the coin has a weight of 31.103 grams, equivalent to 1 troy ounce.

  • Diameter: The 1 dollar coin's diameter measures 40.6 mm, offering a generous canvas for showcasing its iconic imagery.

  • Thickness: A thickness of 2.98 mm ensures the coin's substantial feel and enduring quality.

  • Edge: The coin features a reeded edge, enhancing its traditional aesthetic and tactile appeal.

  • Iconic Design: The obverse is graced with Adolph A. Weinman's revered "Walking Liberty" design, an emblem of freedom and progress. The reverse, crafted by John Mercanti, displays a majestic eagle beneath 13 stars, symbolizing the original thirteen colonies.

  • Mintage: The 1990 American Silver Eagles are highly sought after within the series for their scarcity and appeal among collectors, minted in a quantity of 5,840,110 coins at the Philadelphia Mint.

  • Mint Location: Struck with precision at the Philadelphia Mint, these coins typically do not display a mint mark, preserving the tradition for bullion Silver Eagles until 2021.

The collectible Silver Eagle series consistently captures the interest of both collectors and investors due to its striking design and numismatic value. Encased in protective packaging, the coin's significant silver content and minting excellence are carefully safeguarded. While we do not provide grading services, these slabbed coins are esteemed as valuable collectibles and investments, irrespective of their issue year.

Our selection also includes Proof American Silver Eagles, American Gold Eagles, and American Platinum Eagles.

Design and Inspiration:

Adolph A. Weinman's obverse design for the 1990 American Silver Eagle features the dynamic "Walking Liberty" half-dollar design, with Liberty draped in the flag, advancing towards a hopeful tomorrow while holding symbols of honor and courage. This figure walks towards a sun that emits 13 rays, representing the unity of the original colonies.

John Mercanti's reverse design showcases a dignified heraldic eagle, protected by a liberty shield and clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons which are symbols of peace and vigilance, under 13 stars for the founding states. The eagle prominently carries the banner "E PLURIBUS UNUM," reinforcing the nation's motto of unity from diversity. The inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” encircle the motif.

The 1990 edition of the American Silver Eagle epitomizes the U.S. Mint's dedication to superior precious metal craftsmanship, capturing an essential element of American numismatic heritage. Its intricate design and precious silver content render it a must-have for collectors and investors alike.

These uncirculated US Mint 1990 American Silver Eagles are available as standard, non-graded coins, yet their market value greatly surpasses that of ordinary silver bullion coins.

Important to Remember: The silver coins offered in Brilliantly Uncirculated (BU) condition can exhibit natural signs of wear such as marks, blemishes, and tarnish. This is particularly common for older silver coins that have been in contact with air containing sulfur gases. Traces of sulfur, which are naturally found in the air, lead to the discoloration and darkening of silver over time.
