The American Silver Eagle has been annually produced each year from 1986 to the present by the US Mint. Over that three-decade period, Silver Eagles have become one of the most widely traded silver bullion coins in the world. Its design, a modern re-imagining of a classic U.S. coin design, is an endearing reflection of America’s love of liberty and the United States’ proud history of extolling freedom above all other virtues.
About Silver Eagles
Authorized by an Act of Congress in late 1985, today’s top-selling bullion coin made its debut in 1986. Since then, over 400 million American Silver Eagles have been sold around the world! In fact, in both 2013 and 2014, the Silver Eagle set new annual sales records, topping 40 million total coins minted in each year.
Each of these coins is struck from 1 troy ounce of 99.9% pure (.999 fine) silver. They are designated with a $1 face value, as their legal tender status affords them a full guarantee by the United States government for the weight and purity of their precious metal content. These american eagle silver dollar coins are also approved for inclusion in an individual retirement account, or ira.
Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful coins in production today, the Silver American Eagle revives Adolph A. Weinman's iconic Walking Liberty design. Liberty wears a star-spangled American flag dress as she strides towards a rising sun, symbolizing the dawn of a new day or new era. The reverse features former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti's heraldic eagle, designed specifically for the Silver Eagle.
