2012 was the 27th year of the Silver Eagle series. Mintages of the bullion coins dropped a bit this year to almost 34 million. The mint did a great job with the coins this year, however, as NGC has graded over 27% of 2012 Silver Eagles as MS70.
An American Silver Eagle, also called an ASE by some collectors, is a bullion coin minted by the U.S. mint. Each coin has a face value of just one dollar. However, these are bullion coins, which means that they contain precious metals. All 2012 American Silver Eagle coins are made up of one ounce of pure silver. Because of that silver content, each regular issue 2012 $1 silver coin usually trades for around $2 above or below the current price of an ounce of silver depending on if you are buying or selling. If you are thinking about selling, we pay the current spot price for non-proof American Silver Eagles. As an example, if the silver spot price is $20, then we will pay $20 per coin.
Each one dollar coin has the following text: 2012 – LIBERTY – In God We Trust – United States Of America – E Pluribus Unum – 1 OZ. Fine Silver One Dollar | The design is fairly simple. The front (or obverse) of the coin has a woman with the sun behind her. The back, which is also called the reverse, pictures an eagle, shield, and 13 stars.
