The American Silver Eagle program is one of the most popular in the world and each year is purchased by investors and collectors in large numbers. There are few coins that compete with it in terms of design, mint quality, and purity. Collectors around the globe clamor for the coins each year, making it difficult at times for the US Mint to match demand.
Between 2008 and 2010, the American Silver Eagle faced unprecedented demand that forced the US Mint to suspend sales to authorized dealers. An allocation program was adopted that rationed the number of American Silver Eagles provided to dealers and collectors each week. By 2012, demand remained so high that production surged to one of the highest levels ever. A grand total of 35.3 million 2012 American Silver Eagle coins were produced.
When the NGC gives a coin an MS69 grade, it indicates that the mint mark and year of minting have an attractive, sharp strike. Additionally, the surface of the coin will have less than three blemishes on its surface. These 2012 American Silver Eagles bear the same iconic images featured on the coins since their introduction in 1986.
On the obverse side of the coin is Adolph A. Weinmans image of Walking Liberty. In his portrayal, Lady Liberty is featured walking aside the sea with the sun rising at her back and her right arm outstretched. The image represents Americas persistent march toward a brighter future for all. On the reverse side is the heraldic eagle.
