Posted on 10/26/2011

Coins from the limited-edition set of American Eagle Silver coins will receive a special NGC label and pedigree. Special submission instructions apply.

To commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the American Eagle Silver Coin Program, the US Mint is issuing a limited-edition set of five one-ounce American Eagle Silver Coins. This five-coin set contains one each of the following 2011 dated coins: American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin – mint mark: “W” (West Point); American Eagle Silver Proof Coin – mint mark: “W” (West Point); American Eagle Silver Reverse Proof Coin – mint mark: “P” (Philadelphia); American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin – no mint mark and American Eagle Silver Uncirculated Coin – mint mark: “S” (San Francisco).

Coins from these sets will be pedigreed as 25TH ANNIVERSARY SET. A special NGC commemorative label is available. Because some of these coins are also available individually from the US Mint, special instructions must be followed in order for coins to qualify for this
