    Customers: Please note that because these coins are older, they may have blemishes and/or imperfections and are not guaranteed to be in brilliant uncirculated condition.

    For the first time in five years the American Silver Eagle approached 5 million bullion coins produced. The number of 1998 American Silver Eagle coins struck in total jumped for a second consecutive year, the first time the coin program had seen back-to-back years of growth since 1992-1993. Right now the 1998 American Silver Eagle is available from JM Bullion in both proof and bullion versions.

    Coin Highlights:

    • 1998 American Silver Eagle mintage totaled 5,297,549!
    • 13th annual striking of an American Silver Eagle coin!
    • Arrives in individual flips, mint-sealed tubes of 20, or Monster Boxes of 500.
    • Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
    • Protect your investment with 40.6mm Direct Fit Air-Tite Capsules or 40.6mm Air-Tite Coin Tubes, which hold 20 coins.
    • Bears a face value of $1 (USD) backed by the federal government.
    • Includes the Walking Liberty image from Adolph A. Weinman.
    • Features the heraldic eagle from John Mercanti.
    • Available in proof with a P mint mark from the Philadelphia Mint.

    The 1998 American Silver Eagle marked the last time in program history that the bullion and proof versions of the coin would be struck at separate mints. The San Francisco Mint originally struck both coins from 1986 until 1992, when the proof specimen moved to the Philadelphia Mint in 1993.

    Bullion coin production would be shifted to the Philadelphia Mint as well in 1999, and both coins would go to the West Point Mint in 2001, making 1998 the last time the coins were produced by separate facilities.

    Another interesting fact for the 1998 American Silver Eagle is the declared ceiling on proof coins. The proof coins had a declared maximum of 450,000 in 1998. In coming years, this would be raised to 550,000, and eventually to 750,000 coins in the early 2000s.

    On the obverse of each 1998 American Silver Eagle coin is the image of Walking Liberty. Created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916, it featured a full-length figure of Liberty as she walked toward the setting sun as a representation of the nations strive to discover a brighter tomorrow.

    The reverse features a modernized version of the historic heraldic eagle of the United States. Refined by then-Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, this heraldic eagle is now featured only on the American Silver Eagle.

    How To Steps: Filing a Police Report+

    As part of the claims process at JM Bullion, we require customers to file a police report with local law enforcement and provide documentation of said report to us. If you have not previously filed a police report, we can help provide you with some basic how-to steps. First and foremost, note there are three options available in many jurisdictions:

    1. File a report in person
    2. File a report over the phone
    3. File a report online

    Step 1: Locate Nearest Department

    You should file a police report with the nearest, appropriate law enforcement agency. If you live within city limits, your local police department is the proper authority to file a report with. If you live outside established city limits, the local sheriffs department may have jurisdiction. You can locate the proper department by conducting an online search or calling 311 (information), if that service is available in your area.

    Step 2: Provide Detailed Information

    Whether you file a report in person, over the phone, or online, make sure that you provide as much detail about the incident as possible. When it involves property loss or damage, make sure to provide relevant financial information as well.

    Step 3: Obtain a Copy of the Report

    When it comes to filing a claim with JM Bullion, we require a copy of the police report. If you filed a report in person, you can obtain a written copy immediately or get a case number and retrieve a copy of the report when its ready.

    When you file a report on the phone or online, make sure to provide contact information such as a telephone number and email address so you can receive a copy of the report.

    Please Note

    If you file a report online, you can often print a copy of your report instantly upon submitting the paperwork online. Additionally, you may find that some jurisdictions do not allow you to file a report over the phone. If you need further details on filing a report, you should call your local law enforcement department or 311 for assistance in starting your police report.

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, Ethereum, Ripple, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    We will notify you by email once your order ships. You can also check the current status by logging in to your account or using ourTrack An Orderpage.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, 4 Shipping Method, you will see the available shipping options for your order. If your purchase is eligible for free shipping, the pre-selected option will be base shipping, which is either USPS or UPS at our choice. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How do I ship my buyback order to you?+

    We utilize UPS for all buyback shipments. All parcels must be either picked up by UPS or delivered to a UPS Customer Center. The UPS Store is not the same as a UPS Customer Center. We cannot guarantee liability if the parcel is dropped off at a UPS Store, UPS Access Point, UPS Drop Box, or UPS Authorized Service Providers.

    Alternatively, you can ship your order on your own. If you choose to do so, we strongly recommend sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Required) and purchase insurance to cover the full amount of your items. Please be advised that it may be faster and more cost-effective to ship your order using our prepaid UPS label than sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Requied).

    Safe Shipping and Packaging Checklist

    • Secure merchandise in smaller box
      • Use additional packaging materials such as padded envelopes, bubble wrap, paper, foam pad, making sure movement of merchandise is restricted. Shake the package to be sure there is no rattle.
    • Mark tracking information
      • Mark tracking number, shipper, and recipient information outside the smaller box. Its needed in case the shipping information on the outside box gets damaged and becomes illegible during transit.
    • Double box your shipments
      • Place the small box inside a larger courier box. Make sure movement is restricted with additional cushioning and double boxing dramatically increases the strength and integrity of the parcel.
    • Proper enclosure
      • Please seal all seams or flaps on the outside of the box with clear tape in addition to adhesive on flap. This is an important step to avoid any tampering.
    • Proper labeling
      • Beware of wording which might express reference to valuable goods. Obvious words that directly relate to valuables are strictly prohibited. Abbreviate names, i.e. turn Robs coin Shop to Robs Shop.
    • Important Considerations
      • Act as if all packages are not insured
      • Include a packing slip and note a trade # and/or account name so this parcel can be verified properly
      • Never reveal the contents of your shipment, even to the courier
      • Never state a value or reference to valuables anywhere on the box or label
      • Do not ship a package with a value in excess of $60,000 per box. We have provided an adequate number of label(s) to accommodate your shipment.
    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.

    Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?+
