HISTORY OF THE AMERICAN SILVER EAGLE
In the brief period since its introduction in 1986, the Silver Eagle has become the most widely traded silver bullion coin in the world. It stands at the summit of a 200-year history of American silver coinage. As stipulated by law, American Silver Eagles are composed of silver mined exclusively in the United States with a purity of 99.9%, making them the purest U.S.silver bullion coins ever minted. All Silver Eagles are struck in the one troy ounce denomination with a nominal face value of $1. The Silver Eagle is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin in production today. The obverse takes its design directly from one of the most iconic coins in U.S.history-- Adolph A. Weinman's Walking Liberty half-dollar of 1916-1947.The reverse of the coins minted from 1986-2021 feature a design by JohnMercanti, chief engraver at the U.S. Mint. It depicts a proud heraldic eagle placed directly beneath thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies. By combining the classic with the modern, the American silver eagle coins capture the unique spirit of our country--the pride of our history while moving forward with purpose.
