American Eagle Silver Dollars are authorized by Congress and produced by the United States Mint at West Point, New York and are legal tender coins with a face value of one dollar (though they are worth considerably more since the market price of one ounce of silver has been many times greater than one dollar for more than four decades). Unlike silver medallions, silver bars, or art bars, American Eagles are Official Legal Tender guaranteed by the U.S. Government as to silver weight and silver purity.
Since the first day American Eagle Silver Dollars were released in 1986, they’ve been the most highly prized and most popular Silver Bullion Coins in the world! Many consider the design of the coin to be one of the most beautiful coins ever produced. Requiring no assaying, American Eagles are easily converted to cash at any time.
The obverse (front) of the coin features Adolph A. Weinman’s stunning Walking Liberty design originally used on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916 through 1947. The reverse design is a rendition of a heraldic eagle by John Mercanti and also features a shield, with 13 stars, representing the 13 original American colonies, positioned above the eagle’s head.
Highly prized for their historical beauty and pure silver content, American Eagle Silver Dollars are the largest Silver Dollars ever issued by the U.S. Mint. (These are impressively large and substantial coins.) By law, each coin contains one full troy ounce of pure silver. Each coin contains 1.0000 troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver and is 40.6 mm (1.598 inches) in diameter.
Every Silver Eagle is a work of art, minted to exacting standards by the United States Mint. These classic coins are among the most affordable ways to own government minted bullion coins.
These coins are commonly used as investments or gifts or collected or as protection in case of national disasters or bank failures.
Note: SILVER COINS ARE STANDARD RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ALMOST ALL SURVIVAL AND NATIONAL DISASTER SITUATIONS WHEN BANKS MAY FAIL OR CLOSE AND PAPER MONEY IS USELESS – ONLY SILVER AND GOLD IS ACCEPTED EVERYWHERE IN EVERY EMERGENCY.
