Silver Coins


American Silver Eagle

U.S. Silver Eagle When introduced in November 1986, these dazzling coins immediately dominated the coin collecting/investment market. Today they are the number one selling silver bullion coin in America. The design of the coin has garnered many accolades and given the coin a reputation of being one of the most beautiful coins ever produced. The observe side of the American Eagle silver coin is the graceful "Walking Liberty" by Adolph A. Weinman, originally used by U.S Silver half dollars from 1916 through 1947. The memorable "Heraldic Eagle" by John Mercanti graces the reverse side as an enduring symbol of American strength.

The Silver Eagle is the largest coin ever struck by the US Mint. It is 40.6 mm (almost 1.6 inches) in diameter and contains one troy ounce of .999 silver. They have a face value of $1 and are certified as legal tender. They're the only silver bullion coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. The other most popular US silver coin has to be the Morgan dollars.
