Purchase your NGC First Day of Issue bullion Platinum Eagles!

Certified 2016 Bullion Platinum American Eagles

Certified 2016 Bullion Platinum American Eagles

Now available for purchase at MCM!

This year, numismatists around the world were waiting eagerly for the official release of the bullion Platinum Eagle coin. After a year’s gap in the series, the 2016 bullion platinum release rapidly sold out at the U.S. Mint. However, ModernCoinMart has them in-stock and available for purchase.

Platinum is a scarce metal that has a high demand, partially due to its industrial purposes. As #5 in the world for platinum mining, the U.S. oftentimes has to rely on importing platinum. This leaves little room for coin production, and could possibly influence the gaps in the Platinum Eagle coin series.

The last bullion Platinum Eagle, which was produced in 2014, had a limited mintage of only 16,900 coins. With so little available, and with the demand constantly increasing, you’ll have to act quickly to secure the coins you need for your collection.

Each bullion Platinum Eagle has been struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9995 fine platinum and carries a $100 denomination. The obverse design, created by John Mercanti, depicts the Statue of Liberty as if she was looking into the future.

ModernCoinMart is proud to offer 2016 Platinum Eagle bullion coins certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in MS69 and MS70 condition with the First Day of Issue designation. As your leader in bullion and numismatics, they have sent out many coins to NGC to be certified. After hundreds of coins were submitted for grading, only a very small number of them have achieved the highest grade, MS70.

Because collectors are rapidly adding these coveted MS70 releases to their collections, they urge you to claim your 2016 Platinum Eagle bullion coins today.

Low Population Certified American Silver Eagles now Available at MCM!

Low population certified American Silver Eagles

2004 & 2006 American Silver Eagles

Low population dates are now available from MCM!

Since production began in 1986, the American Silver Eagle has been favored among numismatists and stackers for its weight, purity, and design. The obverse was designed as a modern adoption of Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty, which was used on U.S. half-dollars from 1916 until 1947. Many consider Weinman’s Walking Liberty to be one of the most beautiful designs in American numismatic history. The reverse of the American Silver Eagle was designed by American sculptor and engraver, John Mercanti, who is responsible for many U.S. and world coin designs, including the 2016 Australian Wedge Tailed Eagle.

While the design has remained the same throughout the entire American Silver Eagle series, the mintage figures have widely varied. MCM is proud to offer Silver Eagles from 2004 and 2006, which have very low PCGS populations for MS70 First Strike graded coins. This is the highest grade that a coin can receive. PCGS’s definition of MS70 states that this grade has a full, complete strike.

PCGS Population reports show that out of 21,952 total coins, only 1,585 2004 Silver Eagles have been graded as MS70 First Strike! That’s only 7% of all 2004 Silver Eagles graded by PCGS!

Out of 150,970 total 2006 Silver Eagles graded by PCGS, only 712 coins were graded as MS70 First Strike! That’s less than 1% of all 2006 Silver Eagles graded by PCGS!

Don’t miss your chance to add one of these coins to your collection. These high grades are definitely not easy to find. This could be your only chance! Order today and get free shipping on all American Silver Eagles with no minimum.
