With fears over Y2K sparking panic in stock markets and the Dotcom bubble bursting, investors were looking to buy silver as a means of avoiding the economic downturn. The American Silver Eagle benefited greatly from this with a fourth consecutive year of growth in demand and a new second-highest mintage figure in program history to this point. Today, 2000 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins are available to you online from JM Bullion with a near-perfect certification.

The continued concerns over Y2K served to generate fresh interest in precious metals, with the 2000 American Silver Eagle experiencing a jump in demand of nearly 2 million coins. The 2000 issue of the coins had a final mintage of 9,239,132 coins, up more than 1.8 million coins from the 1999 release of the coin. This was, at the time, the second-highest mintage figure in the series behind the 11.44 million coins sold in 1987.
All of these 2000 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins are available to you with a PCGS certification of Mint State 69. Considered a near-perfect coin, each of these specimens has full, original mint luster and shows no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
The 2000 American Silver Eagle was the second, and last, release of the silver bullion coins from the Philadelphia Mint. Originally produced by the San Francisco Mint from 1986 until 1998, the Silver Eagle bullion coins were struck at the Philadelphia Mint only in 1999 and 2000 before switching permanently to the West Point Mint. It is worth noting that none of the bullion Silver Eagles have a mint mark specifically denoting where they are struck, but it is public knowledge.
On the obverse of American Silver Eagle coins is Adolph A. Weinmans Walking Liberty design. This image is featured on the obverse of American Silver Eagles now, but originated on the US circulation half-dollar coin issued from 1916 to 1947. The reverse of all 2000 American Silver Eagles includes the heraldic eagle of the United States as designed by John Mercanti.
