The Silver Eagle that shouldn’t exist – How Covid-19 caused this rare issue


The Silver Eagle that shouldn’t exist – How Covid-19 caused this rare issue

The US Eagle is acknowledged as the world’s premier silver coin, with millions bought by collectors each year, but none of them have a story like this coin…It wouldn’t exist without Covid-19.

Bullion Silver Eagles are normally struck at the West Point Mint in New York or, occasionally, at the San Francisco Mint, but due to the pandemic, the US Mint temporarily shut down its West Point facility. 240,000 Eagles were struck out of Philadelphia, making it the second-rarest bullion American Silver Eagle ever.

Why CPM Prestige recommends the 2020 Emergency US Silver Eagle…

  • The 2020 Silver Eagle coin that shouldn’t really exist.
  • Very rare as struck at Philadelphia Mint instead of New York due to Covid-19.
  • Just 240,000 issued, making it the second-rarest US Silver Bullion Eagle of all time.
  • Struck from Pure Silver and housed in an official ANACS capsule.

CPM Prestige have been able to import a small number from the US and expect them to go quickly. Your coin is encapsulated, boxed and certified by the American Numismatic Association Certification Service (ANACS).
