The American Eagle Silver Coin is the world’s most popular silver bullion coin. They are widely recognized throughout the United States and around the world, which establishes these coins as one of the most liquid silver investments you can own. The U.S. Silver Eagles are perfect for any investor or collector, regardless of budget or experience with investing in silver.

Plans for the American Eagle Silver bullion program started in the 1970s when talks to sell off silver from the Defense National Stockpile became a serious discussion. However, after many years of delaying action, no bills were ever enacted. It wasn’t until 1986 that the first American Silver Eagle was struck at the San Francisco Mint, and thus the Silver Eagle program had begun.

As a symbol of American liberty and freedom, the obverse design of the Silver Eagle coins is taken from Adolph A. Weinman’s famous design “Walking Liberty,” which also appears on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar Coin from 1916 to 1947. For nearly a century, this design has been a public favorite and considered one of the most beloved American coinage designs of all time. The reverse of the American Silver Eagle coins was designed by John Mercanti, and depicts a variation of the Great Seal of the United States.

The United States Mint produces millions of Silver Eagles each year to meet the increasing demand for these beautiful coins. They contain exactly one troy ounce of .999 pure silver and are all IRA eligible. The Silver Eagle coins have been minted at San Francisco, Philadelphia, and West Point. Today, the majority of bullion grade silver eagles are minted exclusively at West Point. The US Mint also produces these coins in proof strike and burnished strike, which are sold in collectible display boxes.
