The American Silver Eagle is of the most popular coins in the world. Officially released in 1986 by the United States Mint, it became the standard silver investment for investors, leading to its high demand. The silver variety is only available in a 1 oz weight but can be bought in bullion, proof, or burnished conditions. This listing is for the bullion version and will arrive in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Each 2021 1 oz American Silver Eagle Type 2 contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver. Individual coins will be shipped inside protective plastic flips, multiples of 20 will ship in plastic tubes, and 500 coins will ship inside a sealed monster box. The silver eagle has a denomination of $1, which can be used as legal tender in the United States. The Silver Eagle is not meant to be used for circulation.
In 2021, the design of the Silver Eagle was updated for the first time. The obverse contains the same design as previous versions with slight modernization updates. It was originally designed by Adolph A Weinman in 1916 for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. Liberty can be seen walking in left-profile relief towards the sun as she carries oak branches in her left hand.
The reverse is an all-new design by Emily Damstra, depicting a bald eagle soaring in flight, holding onto a large oak branch with its talons. This design replaces John Mercanti’s heraldic eagle. Surrounding the eagle are identifying markers of the coin and the de facto national motto of the United States.
