2011 Silver Eagle Proof Coins: Where To Get The Best Deals

Updated on February 1, 2011

2011 Silver Eagle Proof

The 2011 Silver Eagle Proof coins are due to be released on  07/06/2011.  Proof Silver Eagles have been minted every year starting in 1986 with the exception of 2009.  In 2009 the silver eagle blanks were not sufficient enough to fill all of the orders for the uncirculated version of the American Silver Eagle and because US law mandated that a sufficient supply of uncirculated silver eagles be made available to the public and the silver eagle proofs were put on hold and never minted that year.

Proof Silver Eagles are made from highly polished dies that produce a mirror like finish unlike the uncirculated american eagles.  Each year the proof silver eagle looks the same except in 2006 for the 20th anniversary the US mint released a reverse proof.  The reverse proof was made by minting the coins with a mirror finish on the raised surface instead of in the field.  For collectors of silver eagles the 2011 silver eagle proof is a must.  

During the current year the best deal on 2011 Silver eagles is to get them straight from the mint when they become available.  They only cost $45.95 plus shipping when bought from the mint.  After they sell out or in 2012 the best place to buy them will be APMEX, eBay and  APMEX is a very reputable company but if you order on or Ebay beware that sellers may keep the best ones for themselves and sell off the less desirable coins.  If you don't mind paying a little more you should be able to find a nice one at a local coin shop.  Coin shops are valuable because you can take a look at the coins before purchasing them.  This prevents you from getting swindled by the local dealer like you might have been by an online dealer.  Whichever way you decide to collect you 2011 Silver Eagle Proof Coins you are bound to get your hands on a very nice coin that will be valuable for years to come.
