The 2002 American Silver Eagle: A Premier Choice for Collectors and Investors

The 2002 American Silver Eagle stands as a notable addition to the esteemed collection initiated by the United States Mint in 1986, earning acclaim from both numismatists and investors. Continuing the tradition of high quality and standards, this edition upholds the legacy of its predecessors.

Renowned for its 99.9% silver content, impeccable craftsmanship, and the U.S. Mint's unwavering dedication to excellence, each American Eagle silver bullion coin remains highly coveted by those who appreciate the value of silver.

Despite its US Mint nominal face value of one dollar, the actual market value far surpasses this, making it a preferred choice over standard silver bullion coins or rounds.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: Crafted from .999 fine silver, the 2002 American Silver Eagle boasts a purity level of 99.9%, appealing to both coin collectors and silver investors. Additionally, this silver coin qualifies for IRA investments, presenting an excellent opportunity to enhance retirement portfolios.

  • Weight: Adhering to the series' specifications, the coin weighs 31.103 grams, equivalent to 1 troy ounce.

  • Diameter: With a diameter of 40.6 mm, it provides ample space for its distinguished designs.

  • Thickness: The coin's thickness measures 2.98 mm, ensuring durability and a substantial feel.

  • Edge: Its reeded edge contributes to the coin's classic aesthetic and tactile experience.

  • Iconic Imagery: The obverse features the celebrated "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman, symbolizing freedom and progress. The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, showcases a majestic eagle beneath 13 stars, symbolizing the original states.

  • Mintage: The 2002 American Silver Eagles are esteemed within the series for their limited availability. Production exclusively took place at the West Point Mint, marked with a 'W'. In 2002, the total production amounted to 10,539,026 American Silver Eagles.

  • Mint Location: Exclusively minted at the West Point Mint, distinguished by the 'W' mint mark, a characteristic not shared by all years.

The uncirculated collectible USA Silver Eagle series remains a focal point of interest for collectors and investors alike due to its captivating design and numismatic value. Encased in protective packaging, the significant silver content and meticulous minting of the coin are impeccably preserved. While not graded, these encapsulated coins are esteemed as valuable collectibles and investments, regardless of their issue year.

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

Design and Inspiration:

  • Obverse Design: The "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman for the 2002 American Silver Eagle features Liberty cloaked in the American flag, advancing towards a promising future while bearing symbols of honor and strength. The design also includes a sun with 13 rays, symbolizing the unity of the original states. The word LIBERTY is inscribed at the top of the obverse, with the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” to the right. The year is listed at the bottom.

  • Reverse Design: The reverse, created by John Mercanti, depicts a heraldic eagle behind a shield, holding an olive branch and arrows in its talons, symbolizing peace and preparedness, under 13 stars representing the founding states. The phrase "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is on a banner held in the American eagle’s beak, with “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” along with “1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” encircling the design.

The 2002 edition of the American Silver Eagle underscores the U.S. Mint's dedication to exceptional craftsmanship, representing a significant piece of America's coinage history. With its intricate design and substantial silver content, it remains a vital acquisition for both collectors and investors.

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.
