Description & Analysis

The 1996 Silver Eagle is the 11th issue in the series. With the lowest mintage of any bullion Silver Eagle, this is the key date for any collection. It is also a date that tends to come covered in milk spots, so MS70's are extremely elusive. As you can see in the population report, there are over 600 MS69's for every MS70 that NGC has certified.
