Default US Silver Eagles

So I have recently purchased several US silver eagle dollars and all I was shocked at how beautiful these coins are. Pictures do not do any justice.

I have other silver coins, but these would be my favorite. I will defiantly buy some more when I get a chance and can find them for a good price. Just thought I would share.

I paid around $1.75 over spot. I searched for several days before a made the purchase.

I dealt with apmex.com. Heard several good things about them, and I'm very pleased with their service and fast shipping. Not sure if it's against forum rules to post that, if it is let me know and I will remove it.

Eagles are pretty coins! The place I go to locally charges significantly more than bullion price for them, though, so I buy usually generic rounds and 10-ounce bars.

Can we get some pics, even if they don't do any justice? See if your camera can do macros and use plenty of light. That'll help show fine detail on the coins.

Here's an opportunity to start another sub-forum!! How many of our members have even a modest coin collection?

I am both a coin and stamp collector. I have picked up a nice little stash of silver Eagles a couple of years ago. I agree they are beautiful coins.

I wouldn't say that I am a "coin collector", but I do have a few 1 oz silver coins and a couple 10 oz silver bars put away for a rainy day.

Have only collected a couple of stamps. $200 and $5 denominations. But I DO like them!
