This press release announces the new Whitman book by Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez on American Silver Eagles.
Whitman Publishing announces the upcoming release of A Guide Book of
American Silver Eagles, a new reference and history by Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez. The 384-page book is volume 27 in Whitman's
Bowers Series of numismatic references. It will debut in
November 2022, available from booksellers and hobby shops nationwide for $29.95. In the
meantime, it is available for preorder (including at www.Whitman.com and online bookstores).
The United States Mint has sold more than 600 million American Silver Eagles since 1986. As a
collectible coin widely admired by hobbyists, the American Silver Eagle has been called
modern Morgan silver dollar. It is also the world's most popular silver bullion coin for
investors. Its weight, content, and purity are guaranteed by the government of the United States.
Each American Silver Eagle contains one full ounce of .999 fine silver.
In the Guide Book of American Silver Eagles, award-winning writer Joshua McMorrow-Hernandez offers readers the content they've come to expect from the Bowers Series: behind-
the-scenes history; experienced guidance for both collectors and investors; market analysis; and
valuable advice on grading, storage, cherrypicking for quality, and other tips for smart
acquisition of these popular coins.
The new book includes chapters on the historical context of American silver dollars, other
bullion programs of the United States, and the artistic roots of the American Silver Eagle. The
largest chapter is a coin-by-coin analysis and market guide with mintages and retail values in
multiple grades, including for professionally certified coins. Additional study is given to the
series' key dates, varieties, and error coins.
McMorrow-Hernandez interviewed specialists and experts and included insight from the coin's
designers, guidance from dealers and collectors, advice for investing, tax and insurance
information, storage options, the latest data from the United States Mint, and more.
The American Silver Eagle is not ‘just' a bullion coin,
legitimate collectible on every front, including rarity, value, and numismatic challenge.
McMorrow-Hernandez is a widely published author and journalist, and editor-in-chief of
FUNTopics, the magazine of Florida United Numismatists. He has written hundreds of
numismatic articles for publications including COINage, The Numismatist, Numismatic News,
CoinWeek, the PCGS Rare Coin Market Report, Greysheet, The Centinel, Philadelphia

the author of Images of America: The United States Mint in Philadelphia.
