ANACS to Attribute 2014-2017 Bullion American Silver Eagles by US Mint Facility

Think your Silver Eagle collection is complete? Think again. In light of recent information, uncovered by Coin World, ANACS is pleased to now accept 2014-2017 American Silver Eagles for mint verification and certification. Having no mint mark, these 1oz silver dollars were accepted to have been struck at the West Point Mint, now, due to findings unveiled in a Freedom of Information Act request, we can confirm the originating mint based on specific characteristics of the US Mint "Monster Box".

To qualify for a special mint designation which will be represented in parenthetical fashion, ANACS must be able to verify the sealed Monster Box meets these qualifiations:
