Lady Liberty Centennial Silver Proof w/ Double Eagle ID?

Hi. My grandpap passed away a couple years ago and we found a whole bag of these coins stowed away in their envelopes when moving my grandma out. I’ve been googling for an hour and can’t identify it. He has about a dozen of these. The certificate calls it a “double eagle” but when I search that the coin doesn’t match at all and when I search for Lady Liberty silver I find ones with the same face but they all have a torch on the back where mine have this eagle. We’d like to sell some but can’t until we figure out what it is so we can price it appropriately. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    It is a silver round from the American Mint, it is not a US Mint product. The face (obverse) is styled after the US platinum eagle and the reverse was designed by the American Mint. There are many private mints that produce bullion silver rounds and many designs. They sell for a premium from the company that sells them but most are just worth the silver value, there are a few rare designs that can bring a premium on the secondary market. Today silver spot price is $20.93 and I would guess yours are somewhere near that value +/-.

    It's not a coin, it's a silver round (fancy bullion silver). ooops, posted above.

    @Cman429.... Welcome aboard. As stated above, they are not U.S. coins. Silver rounds are worth melt value (Check Kitco for daily values). Cheers, RickO

    Proof like finish in a good capsule. Might also be a first day cover? Very popular back in the day, the envelope seems to have a corresponding design and/or subject matter. The post office cancelation seems to correspond with the whole vibe. If there is a stamp that completes the silver round/envelope/stamp/COA, these might have a tiny bit more value than just the silver value. Probably not much, but some might think them more interesting than a typical 1 ounce silver round.
