Those who wish to acquire silver bullion for their investment portfolios need look no further than lot #183 – a 2011 American Silver Eagle 25th Anniversary Set, all NGC MS69/PF69 early releases. Each set contains the five special 25th Anniversary American Silver Eagles Early Releases graded by NGC. There will be (1) 2011 coin with no mint Mark MS69, (1) 2011-S MS69, (1) 2011-W MS69, and (1) 2011-P PF69, which is a special proof coin made from an entirely different manufacturing process, the result of which gives it reflective mirror-like surfaces over white frosty features. A 2011-W PF69 Ultra Cameo has a special finish known as a Reverse Proof, and is highly coveted amongst collectors and investors alike. Also included in the listing is the original box, paperwork and the empty plastic capsules that the coins came in before they were graded.
