The ever-popular silver American eagle’s obverse side shows Lady Liberty striding forward with the sun at her back, bearing laurel and oak branches in her arms. Adolph Weinman designed the Walking Liberty image in 1916, drawing inspiration from Oscar Roty. The reverse side of this coin shows the heraldic eagle and shield of the United States, designed by John Mercanti. The upcoming 2021 redesign will mark the coin’s 35th anniversary with a new eagle design by Emily Damstra in the 2021 type 2 rendition. This coin (type 1) bears the original design.
Each coin has a nominal face value of $1. With a relatively low premium over spot price, these coins can offer affordable access to the silver market and are a relatively low-cost method for precious metals investment. Each coin weighs one troy ounce of 0.999 fine silver (99.9% purity).
Silver American eagles are among the most popular silver coins globally, and they’re permissible within IRAs for investors looking to secure their retirement savings with physical precious metals.
The US Mint first released the Silver Eagle in 1986, and it remains the official silver bullion coin of the United States. The coin has been minted in Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point over the years. Its weight and content are certified and guaranteed by the U.S. Mint. The lower premiums, stunning design, and widespread popularity make these coins an evergreen choice for investors and collectors alike.
