Made in America! There is no more popular or well-known modern silver coin than the American Silver Eagle. These one-ounce silver bullion coins have been issued each year by the U.S. Mint since 1986. Each coin is struck from .999 fine silver, meaning it is 99.9% pure silver!
The Silver Eagle is known for the rich symbolism of its design on the obverse (front) of the coin. Originally created by renowned sculptor A.A. Weinman in 1916, the "Walking Liberty" motif graces the obverse. The reverse (back) shows the more contemporary heraldic eagle theme that was crafted by former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti.
The American Silver Eagle contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver by weight, making it a convenient size for investors and collectors to add investment-grade silver to their portfolio or collection in affordable increments. The precious metal content of each coin is backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. government, adding to the Silver Eagle's trusted reputation around the world.
When you're planning to buy silver bullion, no other silver coin offers the same level of security and beauty as the 2017 1 oz American Silver Eagle!
