I don't know if everyone is into collecting coins purely wealth preservation, but this year, 2011, is the first year that the San Francisco mint was used to make ASE since 1992. Source If you're into bullion and coins in general enough to try and collect some key dates that will appreciate in value over a long time, be sure to scoop up a few for the long haul.
I agree, I love all silver rounds and variety is great. I have the most of ASE's and Canadian maple leafs, but I also prize my Mex onzas,Englehard prospectors, and unusal .999 rounds such as the one that commemorates a Georgia Tech Football Championship from 1980.
Silver Liberty Bust w/out the date on the front.
Has 13 stars surrounding "LIBERTY" written above her.
Supposedly Jefferson's wife.
No not "The Jeffersons!"
Says "ONE TROY OUNCE 999 FINE SILVER" on the back.
With an eagle and badge. "D" mint mark
No USA, or God talk written.
Looking good and reflecting back to the time of, the Republic of the United States of America.
