First issued by the U.S. government in 1986, silver American Eagles are one of the world’s most popular silver bullion investments.
The “Walking Liberty” design for the silver American Eagle comes from an older American coin, the half-dollar designed by Adolph Weinman and first issued in 1916. Many consider the Walking Liberty half-dollar the United States’ most beautiful silver coins. Designed by John Mercanti, the reverse shows the Great Seal of the United States, an eagle with shield, carrying an olive branch and arrows in its talons. An inverse pyramid of 13 stars for the original 13 colonies is at top. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ‘ 1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” circles the edge.
Silver American Eagles are 1 oz. of 99.9% pure silver bullion. A trace amount of copper is added to increase their durability.
The United States guarantees the content, weight and purity of silver American Eagles, unlike some other bullion coins – a distinct advantage for investors.
