American Silver Eagle Coins

Buy Proof and Uncirculated American Silver Eagles Online

The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion of the United States Mint and is the top choice that is trusted by collectors and investors who buy silver. It is available in proof, uncirculated, burnished, and special versions and is classified as legal tender that bears a nominal face value of 1 USD. The American Silver Eagle is struck only in a 1 troy ounce size and is guaranteed to contain 99.9% pure silver.

The American Silver Eagle is considered one of the most beautiful silver coins ever minted. While nearly half a billion units have already been sold worldwide since 1986, there will always continue to remain a high demand for this coin for years to come among people who wish to add it to their personal collections, dealer inventories, or investment portfolios.

American Eagle Coin Design

Ever since its production started in 1986, all versions of the American Silver Eagle have carried the same design elements. The obverse side of the coin bears Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design. This iconic design is a public favorite and was originally used on the half dollar coin that circulation between 1916 and 1947. Lady Liberty is depicted walking towards the rising sun seen in the background. Her left arm cradles oak and laurel branches and her right arm reaches out toward the rising sun, which is seen in the background.

The word LIBERTY is engraved above her head and the national motto, IN GOD WE TRUST, is at her heels. The year of mintage is centered at the bottom of the coin.

The reverse side bears John Mercanti’s famous design of a heraldic eagle. A shield in front of the eagle protects it.  Thirteen 5-pointed stars above its head each represent an original colony. The eagle is holding a banner with the words E PLURIBUS UNUM in its beak and grasping arrows in its left talon and an olive branch on its right talon.

The reverse side is inscribed with the phrases UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and 1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR.  The uncirculated version does not display a mintmark.  Proof, burnished, and special versions will display the mintmark designating their mint of origin—S for San Francisco, W for West Point, and P for Philadelphia.

History of the American Silver Eagle

The American Silver Eagle was first made available for sale in 1986 following the Liberty Coin Act of 1985. The coinage has been produced at the Philadelphia Mint, San Francisco Mint, and West Point Mint. The uncirculated and proof versions of the American Silver Eagle have been produced every year since they were first issued. However, due to the effects of the global recession in 2008, demand for the business strike version increased in 2009 so much that the US Mint suspended production of the proof version for only that year to supplement additional production needs of the uncirculated coin. The proof version resumed sales in 2010 and the uncirculated version in 2011.
