The 1996 Silver American Eagles proved to be a year of opposites for the strikes. One on hand the Proof Eagles sold so well they hit their mintage cap, on the other the bullion coin sold so poorly that is ranks as the lowest mintage for the strike in the first twenty five years of […]

The 1988 Silver American Eagles marked the third year of the coins availability and experienced a significant decline in interest over what the previous two year’s strikes had shown.
