The composition of the American Silver Eagle is 1 troy ounce of. 999 fine silver, weighing in at 31.10 grams.
Another interesting thing to note is that bullion strike Silver Eagles bear no mintmarks indicating which U. Mint facility produced the coins, therefore bullion Silver Eagles minted in West Point and San Francisco respectively are indistinguishable. However, when you order a mint sealed monster box from BGASC, the mint straps that seal the box denote which U.Mint facility produced the coins. Historically, Silver Eagles are produced at either the West Point Mint or the San Francisco Mint. When ordered, you will receive a Monster Box from one of these two United States Mints. What's inside a Silver Eagle Monster Box? When you cut the mint straps and lift the lid off of a Silver Eagle Monster Box, the first thing you will see is the top of one of two protective insert trays that the mint uses to make sure the tubes stay tightly packed inside.
Lift this tray up and out to reveal 25 mint tubes with signature U. Each of these tubes contains 20 1 oz American Silver Eagle bullion coins in brilliant uncirculated condition, exactly as they left the mint.
The tubes are sitting atop the second insert tray piece in the bottom of the box. In 2011, the United States Mint began using automated tubing equipment to package American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins (instead of hand-packing them) and discontinued inserting paper accounting slips into boxes. As a result, some of the 2011 will have the paper and some do not.
Beginning in 2012 and going forward however, none of the boxes include the paper. The mint places a white sticker label on the outside of each box containing a barcode and box number.
Should I leave the straps on my Mint Sealed Monster Box? The coins are guaranteed to be untouched and in pristine, mint condition. The latter is especially important in the event you decide to sell your Silver Eagles since bullion coin dealers, such as ourselves, tend to pay a higher price for silver coins in sealed boxes than they do for the same quantity of coins that are not in a sealed box. This is the number one reason we recommend leaving your monster box sealed with mint straps intact.
