Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
The United States Gold Bureau has taken the tradition of gifting a silver dollar to new heights by teaming with PersonalWine.com to offer the ultimate gift for any occasion --Silver Eagle Wine -- a limited-production vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley.
The tradition of giving coins as gifts has a long history that crosses many cultures. From the Chinese and Hindus to Russia’s tsars and Ottoman caliphs, heads of state have long given coins as presents. The gift of a silver dollar has been a U.S. military tradition for newly commissioned officers since the American Revolution. In 1836 President Andrew Jackson gifted a U.S. proof set to King Ph’ra Nang Klao of Siam and Rome’s emperors gifted coins to politicians and heads of state to help ensure loyalty.
Silver Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon is a lush, full-bodied wine with complex notes of red fruit, boysenberry and hints of chocolate. Each bottle is delivered in a birch-wood box inlayed with an actual one-ounce 2014 minted Silver American Eagle coin crafted by the United States Mint.
The Silver American Eagle coin was first minted in 1986. Each coin contains one Troy ounce of pure silver with a weight and purity guaranteed by the U.S. Mint. A limited number of the coins are produced each year for silver bullion investors and rare coin collectors. Each coin features a portrait of Lady Liberty on the obverse (as the front of a coin is called) that was originally used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin from 1916 to 1947.
“The first 100 cases of Silver Eagle wine are bottled with a 2007 vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon and Silver Eagle will always be a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. For each batch, we will meet with vintners to hand-select the exact vintage used, to ensure we always present the highest quality wine worthy of the Silver Eagle name,” said Alex Andrawes of PersonalWine.com.
Silver Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon is expected to be popular for college graduation gifts, weddings, job promotions, anniversaries and other major milestones.
