The $1 Silver American Eagle Coin is made of 1 Troy oz of .999 fine silver. This coin is the official silver bullion of the United States, and as such its quality is guaranteed. In fact, the American Eagle Coin is the only official investment-quality 1oz silver bullion coin minted in the United States and represents a good opportunity for those wanting to take their first step on the investment ladder.
The obverse of the coin features a representation of the image of liberty walking towards a rising sun by Adolph A. Weinman, originally used on the half dollar struck between 1916 and 1947, the words "LIBERTY" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" also featured on the design. The reverse of the coin designed by John Mercanti, 12th chief engraver at the U.S. Mint, features a spread-winged eagle, with 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies, along with the wording "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ FINE SILVER,“ "ONE DOLLAR" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
The production of the Silver Eagle coins was instigated by a desire to sell off silver from the National Defense Stockpile through the issuance of silver coins, though this plan faced opposition at first; the first coins were issued in 1986.
Produced by the U.S. Mint, established in 1792 and operating at six facilities around the United States, the Silver Eagle has been produced at three mints: the Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, and the West Point Mint. The $1 Silver American Eagle Coin is the purest silver dollar ever struck by the mint; and over thirty years since first being issued, the Silver American Eagle shows no sign of its popularity waning. In fact, past runs of the coin (in 2014 and 2015) have proven so popular they've run out - so invest in them today, while you still can.
