The 1998 American Silver Eagle: An Essential Addition for Collectors and Investors

The 1998 American Silver Eagle adds a significant chapter to the celebrated series initiated by the United States Mint in 1986. Welcomed with acclaim by both collectors and investors, the 1998 edition continues to meet and surpass the high benchmarks established by its predecessors.

Esteemed for its .999 fine silver purity, exceptional artistry, and the Mint's commitment to superiority, each American Eagle silver bullion coin is eagerly sought after by silver enthusiasts.

Though it bears a legal tender nominal face value of one dollar, the genuine market value of these silver coins greatly surpasses this currency value, making them a more attractive option than the usual silver bullion coins or silver rounds.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: Struck from .999 fine silver, the 1998 American Silver Eagle attains a purity level of 99.9%, captivating both coin collectors and precious metal investors. Additionally, this coin is approved for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), offering a solid choice for those looking to enhance their retirement savings.

  • Weight: In alignment with the series' standards, the coin weighs 31.103 grams, or 1 troy ounce.

  • Diameter: The coin's diameter is 40.6 mm, providing an extensive surface to display its iconic imagery.

  • Thickness: With a thickness of 2.98 mm, the coin delivers a significant feel and enduring quality.

  • Edge: The coin is distinguished by a reeded edge, adding to its classic visual and tactile appeal.

  • Iconic Design: The obverse features Adolph A. Weinman's acclaimed "Walking Liberty" design, symbolizing freedom and advancement. The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, showcases a majestic eagle under 13 stars, indicative of the original thirteen colonies.

  • Mintage: The 1998 American Silver Eagles are highly regarded within the series for their rarity and desirability among collectors, with a production of 4,847,549 coins at the Philadelphia Mint.

  • Mint Location: Expertly minted at the Philadelphia Mint, these coins are typically issued without a mint mark, continuing the practice for bullion Silver Eagles until 2021.

  • Certificate of Authenticity: Each coin comes with a COA, ensuring its authenticity and mint-grade quality.

The collectible uncirculated Silver Eagle series consistently attracts the interest of both collectors and investors with its exquisite design and numismatic significance. Secured in protective packaging, the coin's substantial silver content and minting precision are rigorously maintained. Although no grading service is provided, these slabbed coins are recognized as significant collectibles and investments, regardless of the year of issue.

The selection also encompasses Proof American Silver Eagles, American Gold Eagles, and American Platinum Eagles.

Design and Inspiration:

Adolph A. Weinman's obverse design for the 1998 American Silver Eagle portrays the dynamic "Walking Liberty" half dollar design, with Liberty elegantly cloaked in the flag, moving towards an optimistic future while carrying symbols of honor and courage. This depiction strides towards a sun emitting 13 rays, representing the solidarity of the original colonies.

John Mercanti's reverse design features a distinguished heraldic eagle, protected by a liberty shield and grasping an olive branch and arrows in its talons, symbols of peace and vigilance, beneath 13 stars for the founding colonies. The eagle prominently bears the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM" it its beak, underlining the nation's commitment to unity from diversity. The inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” surround the design.

The 1998 version of the American Silver Eagle exemplifies the U.S. Mint's dedication to unmatched craftsmanship, capturing a vital segment of American numismatic history. Its detailed design and significant silver content make it a crucial asset for collectors and investors.

These US Mint 1998 American Silver Eagles, offered as standard, non-graded coins, see their market value considerably exceed that of standard silver bullion coins.
