Graded American Silver Eagles have been certified by thirty-party grading services like Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), and Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Graded silver eagles for sale come in a variety of Collector holders, also known as ‘Slabs’ with special labels that are highly sought-after by Collectors. Coins are graded on a 70-point scale, with the top-grade of Mint State 70 (MS70) being a perfectly flawless coin, down to lower grade designations based on the coin’s condition.
Graded American Silver Eagles are in high demand with collectors who will gladly pay a Numismatic premium for certified coins because they can be bought and sold sight unseen due to strict grading standards. Certified grading ensures the coin is accurate for the grade, with published price points in industry price guides, based on a coin’s condition and rarity.
Many Collectors choose to assemble a complete date set from 1986 to the present, but some back-dated coins may be hard to find. Set building is not only a great hobby, but also a good way to increase the value of your Silver Eagle investment, because a complete set often has greater value then just random dates.
