Silver Eagle Philadelphia Mint Date Run Description:

History of the Silver American Eagle

The first Silver American Eagle was released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. Each coin is struck from one Troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. Over the years, the Silver Eagle has been produced at three mint locations: Philadelphia, San Francisco Mint, and West Point.

The obverse of the coin is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar, which was in circulation from 1916 to 1947, and widely considered one of the most beautiful American coins ever minted. The reverse was designed by John Mercanti and portrays a heraldic eagle grasping an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. Above the eagle are 13 five-pointed stars representing the Thirteen Colonies.

The beauty, elegance and affordability of American Silver Eagle Coins have propelled them to be collected and admired around the world. American Silver Eagle Coins are the world's best-selling silver coins, with more than 130 million of them sold since 1986.

Philadelphia Mint Series (1993 - 2000)

The Coinage Act of 1792, which led to creation of the United States Mint, was entered into law on April 2. At that time, Philadelphia was our nation’s capital, therefore the first mint facility was built there. The Mint Act also instituted a decimal system based on a dollar unit; specified weights, metallic composition and fineness; and required each United States coin feature an impression emblematic of liberty. All proofs made at the Philadelphia Mint carry the "P" mint mark.
