Silver Eagle Coins are offered in 1 oz silver coin sizes by a network of local and online silver coin dealers throughout the world. The Silver American Eagle Coin is considered by many silver bullion industry experts as perhaps the best silver coin selection in the physical silver bullion market.
The US Mint began striking the American Silver Eagle coin in 1986. The Silver Eagle coin remains the official silver bullion coin of the United States of America.
Since its inception, over 500,000,000 ounces of Silver American Eagle coins have been purchased by investors and coin collectors around the world.
The U.S. government guarantees each American Silver Eagle coin contains the stated .999 fine silver weight in troy ounces. The USA’s Secret Service enforces the government’s American Silver Eagle coin guarantee.
American Silver Eagle coin values are based on their weight and the fluctuating silver spot price.
When physical silver supplies cannot properly meet demand, the premium or price per Silver Eagle coin over the silver spot price can increase sharply (e.g. 2008 Financial Crisis silver coin shortage).
These official American silver coins have low $1 US dollar legal tender face values. This assures they will not circulate nor compete with Federal Reserve Notes (more commonly referred to as US dollars).
American Silver Eagle coins are the most popular government minted silver bullions coins in terms of overall sales volumes. These silver coins also demand some of the silver bullion industry’s highest silver bid prices (the price silver dealers are buying these silver coins back at).
In general, online silver dealers pay a price above the fluctuating silver spot price when buying Silver Eagle coins back from investors. This is often not the case with other less popular silver bullion coins.
The American Silver Eagle coin also demands the highest silver ask price amongst other competing high mintage government silver bullion coins like the Canadian Maple Leaf coin or Australia’s Perth Mint Kangaroo Silver coin.
In summation, a Silver American Eagle coin’s price per ounce will usually be both higher when (1) buying and (2) selling them compared to other competing highly sold government minted silver coins.
The American Silver Eagle coin front or obverse features a throwback to the “Walking Liberty" design by Adolph Weinman.
On this modern 1 oz American Silver Eagle coin we find Lady Liberty carrying branches of laurel and oak with the United States flag draped over her shoulders. The year of strike and the word ‘LIBERTY’ and ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’ are also engraved on the front of this most popular modern silver bullion coin.
The American Silver Eagle coin back side or obverse design is by John Mercanti. The back of the coin is struck with the depiction of an eagle behind a shield. The eagle holds an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other talon. There are also 13 five-pointed stars representing U.S.A.’s original Thirteen Colonies.
This silver coin obverse is also minted with the phrases ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ and ‘1 OZ. FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR’. The Latin “E PLURIBUS UNUM’ (meaning: out of many, one) is also struck on the banner that the eagle holds from its beak on the back of this modern silver bullion coin.
