American Eagle Silver 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.
Silver has historically been the most affordable precious metal. Affordability. Credibility. Beauty. They're the qualities that have made American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins the world's best-selling silver coins, with more than 130 million sold since 1986.
Authorized by Congress in 1985 and first minted in 1986, Silver Eagles are .999 fine silver, the finest silver coins ever issued by the United States. Each coin contains a full troy ounce of silver, plus copper, which is added to increase the coin’s durability to help resist scratching and marring.
Often considered one of the most beautiful coins ever minted, the Silver Eagle’s design is based on A. A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty,” introduced on the 1917 silver half-dollar. An eagle and shield, displaying American strength and pride, backs this moving scene of freedom.
American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins are America’s only official investment-grade silver bullion coins. They’re the world’s only silver bullion coins whose weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. So like the dollar, American Eagles are welcome in major investment markets worldwide.
Easy to Buy and Sell
One measure of an investment is liquidity: How easily can it be converted to cash? Silver Eagles, with their unique U.S. Government backing, can be sold for cash at most coin and precious metals dealers worldwide. They’re also legal tender. Their one-dollar face value is largely symbolic, because silver’s market price has historically been higher.
