Some of us are old enough to remember how special it was to receive a shiny new silver dollar on our birthday or at holiday time. If we were lucky, we saved it, because it’s worth a lot more than a dollar today. And the memories it brings back are priceless.
This year you can create special memories, too. The Great American Coin Company is thrilled to offer beautiful, uncirculated $1 American Silver Eagle bullion coins in holiday-themed holders designed by H E Harris, one of the world’s most respected manufacturers of coin collecting supplies.
A Beautiful Keepsake Coin
The American Silver Eagle is a one-ounce 99.9% pure silver coin that features Adolph A. Weinman’s iconic Walking Liberty design that appeared on US half dollar coins from 1916 to 1947. As the sun rises over a ridge in the background, Lady Liberty walks steadfastly into a new dawn, draped in an American flag. She carries a sheaf of laurel and oak branches, symbolizing peace and strength, in her left arm, her right arm extended to bestow the gift of liberty
The reverse of the coin depicts a heraldic eagle with a Union Shield across its breast and a ribbon with the national motto, E Pluribus Unum, flowing from its beak. The eagle holds an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left, again symbolizing peace and strength. A cluster of thirteen stars, representing the original thirteen states, floats above its head.
It is considered one of the most beautiful coins ever made.
In a Beautiful Package
Specially for the holiday season, these beautiful American Silver Eagle keepsake coins come packaged in three holiday-themed holders made by H E Harris, a premier manufacturer of coin and stamp collecting supplies since 1916, the same year the Walking Liberty half dollar debuted.
Securely fastened in an archival plastic holder, the coin is visible from both sides and is surrounded by a choice of three distinct holiday designs on acid-free card stock.
Santa design holders are also available without a coin to allow you to give a similar size coin of your choice.
Three Holiday Themes and 22 Choices of Years
The holders are available in three distinct holiday themes: Santa and Frosty, Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays. The American Silver Eagle coins themselves span each year from 1986 to 2018, so you can choose a year (or years) with a special meaning for you and your loved ones.
American Eagle silver bullion coins in special holiday packaging are perfect stocking stuffers and gifts. Other silver coins in a multitude of choices are great ways to memorialize a special occasion like a birth year, marriage, or childbirth. Coins are available for every year, and 20th century silver coins are very affordable.
Proof and mint sets are another way to commemorate special dates and events, both past and present. Bullion coins, bars, and rounds have many sources and themes that can educate and bring back memories.
And any gift of silver is a thoughtful way to show your affection in a way that’s not only memorable but will increase in value over time.
