Silver American Eagles
Affordability. Credibility. Beauty. They're the qualities that have made American Silver Eagle Coins the world's best-selling silver coins.
American Silver Eagle Coins have been produced and sold in both proof and bullion finishes since 1986. Each contains a minimum of one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. They have always featured a rendition of sculptor Adolph A. Weinman's magnificent Walking Liberty design, originally prepared and executed for the Nation’s first circulating half-dollar coin in 1916. American Silver Eagle Bullion Coins are affordable investments, beautiful collectibles, thoughtful gifts and memorable incentives or rewards. Above all, as legal tender, they're the only silver bullion coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. They're also the only silver coins allowed in an IRA.
The United States Mint produces proof versions of American Silver Eagle Bullion coins for collectors. American Silver Eagle Proof Coins undergo a specialized minting process, which begins by manually feeding burnished coin blanks into presses fitted with special dies. The coin is struck multiple times so the softly frosted, yet detailed images seem to float above a mirror-like field. After scrutiny by white gloved inspectors, each American Eagle Proof Coin is sealed in a protective plastic capsule and mounted in a handsome satin-lined velvet presentation case with its own official Certificate of Authenticity. Since American Eagle Proof Coins are produced by the United States Mint, each coin's content, weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government.
In 2006, the United States Mint added another member to the American Eagle family of precious metal coins. In a process similar to that used to create the magnificent American Eagle Proof Coins, American Eagle Uncirculated Coins are hand-loaded into the coining press, struck on specially burnished blanks and carry the "W" mint mark of the United States Mint at West Point.
