American Silver Eagles
The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion of the United States. They are among the most popular pure silver bullion in the world.
Each is minted from .999 fine silver and carries a symbolic $1 face value, making it America's first 99.9% pure silver dollar.
As legal tender of the United States of America, the weight and purity of American Eagles are guaranteed by the full faith and
credit of the United States Government. This is one of the major reasons why people procure silver eagles. The beautiful design and the comfort of
owning a government-backed coin provide sound reasons to why buy Silver Eagle coins.
The 2014 Silver American Eagle coins weighs one troy ounce each and are offered individually, in mint tubes of 20 coins
and in the popular mint-sealed "monster box" of 500 coins. Gainesville Coins also sells back date years for these popular bullion.
Three Variations Of Eagle Coins
To satisfy the numismatic preferences of collectors and investors, Eagles are produced in multiple variations. Currently the U.S. Mint strikes the American Silver Eagle coins in three versions. Brilliant Uncirculated/ Bullion, Proof, and Burnished.
Brilliant Uncirculated / Bullion
The most common Silver Eagle variation is the Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
These coins are sold individually, in mint tubes of 20, or in mint-sealed
"monster boxes" of twenty-five tubes to total 500. Each coin contains 1 troy
ounce of 99.9% pure silver, which is U.S. government-backed.
This is the only version of the American Silver Dollar that does not carry
a mint mark. They are not sold directly to the public by the United
States Mint. Buy Silver Eagles through Gainesville Coins, an authorized US
Mint bullion dealer.
The proof Silver Eagle is struck from a specially-treated blank that is carefully
cleaned and polished. The blanks are hand-fed into a printing press that uses a
detailed die to strike each coin multiple times. This results in an extra-sharp
image. The process creates a beautiful .999 fine silver bullion that features
mirror-like fields and frosted details. The Proof Eagles have a mint mark on the
reverse. Current-year proof Eagles are available directly from the U.S. Mint;
however, back-dates can be purchased from Gainesville Coins.
The collectors' edition Burnished Uncirculated Eagles are made using the same
process as the proof version, except a burnished pure silver blank is used to create
a satin-like field behind the frosted features.
Like the proof, the burnished coin is struck with a mint mark on its reverse and
current-year versions are availalbe through the U.S. Mint. Buy silver eagles with
a burnished finish in a previous year from Gainesville Coins.
Silver Eagle Coin Design
||1986 - Present
|Coin Diameter (mm):
||Silver American Eagles
The obverse (front) of the modern eagle bullion brings the famous 1916 "Walking Liberty" design of A.A. Weinman into the modern era. In this design, Lady Liberty strides towards the rising sun of a new day, blessing the land before her. Wrapped in the American flag, she carries a bough of oak and one of laurel, signifying the triumphs of the United States in both war and civil endevours. The legend LIBERTY arches above the scene, while the motto "In God We Trust" is inscribed to the right. The year-date of the coin appears near the bottom, under Liberty's sandals.
The reverse, (back) of the coin features the design of John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. Based on the Presidential Seal of the United States, the design shows an American Bald Eagle in heraldic pose, the Union Shield on its breast. It clutches an olive branch in its right talon, and six arrows in its left, signifying preparedness for either peace or war. The ribbon it holds in its beak bears the national motto of the United States: "E Pluribus Unum" (From Many, One.) The thirteen stars in a triangle above the eagle's head represent the original founding 13 colonies. Along the top of the border is struck the name "United States Of America", with the weight and denomination of the coin "1 Oz Fine Silver - One Dollar" along the bottom border.
