The Silver American Eagle - America's Official Silver Bullion Coin
On November 24, 1986, in order to compete with other global coins, like the Canadian Maple Leaf, the US Mint issued its first silver bullion coin: the Silver American Eagle.
The American Silver Eagle bullion coin is composed of one troy ounce of 99.9% silver and has become one of the world's best-selling silver coins.
Silver Eagle Characteristics
- Boasts the highest silver content of any coin in US history
- One of the world's best-selling coins, with 130 million plus sold since 1986
- Available in a one-ounce denomination
- Adolph A. Weinman's "Walking Liberty" is depicted on the front and John Mercanti's Heraldic Eagle graces the back of the coin
Mint Issued and Guaranteed by the US Government: Buy with Confidence
Like its gold counterpart the American Gold Eagle, the congressionally authorized Silver Eagle comes with a guarantee from the US Government that certifies the coin's weight, content, and purity.
Affordability and Feasibility
Silver is sometimes known as "the poor man's gold." Silver's investment characteristics are similar to gold, but the correlation between the two metals is not 1. However, given silver's relatively lower cost per oz. when compared to gold, many investors see silver as a cheaper precious metals investment. The U.S. American Silver Eagle competes with other silver bullion coins like the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf, and the Chinese Silver Panda.
In addition to its affordability and stability, the Silver Eagle bullion coin is the only silver coin accepted in a Precious Metals Silver IRA.
Credibility and Liquidity
Silver eagle coins are recognized worldwide. Gainesville Coins is one of many precious metals dealers that will readily buy your Silver Eagle coins if and when you decide to sell.
Collectable Proof and Burnished Silver Eagles
The US Mint also produces collectible proof and burnished versions of the American Silver Eagle, primarily for collectors. Both proof coins go through a special minting process, and the burnished version is marked with a "W" to denote its issue at the United States Mint at West Point.
Like the American Eagle silver bullion coins, the American Eagle proof and uncirculated coins are guaranteed for purity and silver content by the US Government.
