Sealed Silver Eagle Mint Cases, also known within the industry as Silver Monster Boxes, contain 500 American Silver Eagle Coins weighing 1 ounce each. The sealed mint case contains 25 tubes of 20 Silver Eagle coins per tube. These tubes have a fail-safe design that makes it nearly impossible to load an incorrect number of Silver Eagles.
The Silver Eagle Mint case is kept sealed by two flat plastic straps with the name of the mint where they were created printed on the straps. Inside the Silver Eagle Monster Box there is an audit slip signed and dated by a person representing the United States Mint, along with 500 pristine coins.
Silver Eagles are 99.9% pure silver and beautifully designed and crafted, making them highly collectible, especially in 500 coin quantities like the Monster Box.
The investment liquidity of the American Silver Eagle Coin is outstanding. Aside from the Silver Eagle Coin being legal tender in the United States, their design and government backing makes them convertible into currency worldwide.
While these sealed boxes could be from any year or design, they will most likely be from the current year. Regardless of the year they are from though, they are guaranteed to be sealed, and have never been opened.

As of 2021, the back of the Silver Eagle coin carries two different designs.
The two designs are known as type 1 and type 2:
Type 1, struck from 1986 to 2021, features the famous heraldic American Bald Eagle created by former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti, holding arrows and olive branches alongside 13 stars representing the original colonies. grasps a ribbon with the motto, “E Pluribus Unum,” or “Out of many, one.”
Type 2, struck mid-2021 and forward, features an Emily Damstra designed American Bald Eagle carrying an oak branch with wings outstretched as it prepares to land in a nest. Surrounding the eagle are inscriptions for “United States of America” as well as the denomination, weight, and fineness, and the same motto “ E Pluribus Unum”.
All American Silver Eagles have the same iconic obverse, front of the coin, design which features Adolph A. Weinmen’s 1916 Walking Lady Liberty. Lady Liberty is depicted walking towards a rising Sun, draped in the U.S. flag, holding laurel and oak branches.
Your sealed 500 oz Silver Eagle monster box will contain either all type 1 or all type 2 reverse designs, sealed with straps in a green US Mint protective case.
