American Eagle silver bullion coins packaged with special labels featuring the facsimile signature of NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre are being sold to raise funds for the NRA’s work to defend the Second Amendment.
National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre has joined an impressive list of former U.S. Presidents and other individuals whose signatures appear on labels packaged with historic, precious metal U.S. coins. Sales of the LaPierre signature American Eagle silver coins by 1st National Reserve are helping to raise funds for the NRA's work in defending the Second Amendment.
“The limited-edition Wayne LaPierre facsimile signature label accompanies beautiful, 2016-dated silver American Eagle coins graded Mint State 69 on the 70-point numismatic grading scale. Each superb condition coin contains one-ounce of 99.9% pure fine silver and has been certified for authenticity and grade by the industry respected Professional Coin Grading Service,” said Michael Fuljenz, Chief Numismatic Consultant of 1st National Reserve.
Previous signature label signers have included former U.S. Presidents and Mint Directors and over 40 baseball Hall of Fame players.
“Mike Fuljenz and 1st National Reserve have been strong NRA supporters for over ten years. I’m proud to join with them and announce the release of their NRA Signature Series Silver Eagles, and $2 will be provided to the NRA for every facsimile signature coin sold. Thank you for your support of the NRA and this important program,” stated LaPierre.
The price per coin, subject to change and while supplies last, is $26.99 plus shipping.
