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.

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.

collectors and investors around the world.
