Information about American Silver Eagle 1 oz
The American Eagle silver coin is a distinguished American silver coin produced by the U.S. Mint, similar to the American Eagle gold coin. The Silver American Eagle made its debut in 1986 and holds the distinction of being the first pure silver coin issued in the United States. Its initial minting was prompted by the embargo on the import of the Krugerrand, a gold coin, due to international sanctions against apartheid in South Africa. Consequently, the Silver American Eagle swiftly gained widespread popularity and became a highly regarded and sought-after bullion coin.
The design of the silver coin
The front side of the Silver American Eagle proudly displays the enduring image of "Walking Liberty." This iconic depiction features a figure personifying Liberty, gracefully walking with a torch held high in one hand and an olive branch in the other, while the American flag drapes around her shoulders. Notably, this motif was originally used on the U.S. 1/2 Dollar silver coin from 1916 to 1947.
On the reverse side of the Silver American Eagle, you'll find a majestic Bald Eagle, America's heraldic bird, encircled by a ring of 13 stars. These stars symbolize the original 13 colonies of the United States established in 1776.
The Silver American Eagle is issued as a 1-ounce coin and boasts a purity rating of 999.9, making it the largest and heaviest silver coin produced in the United States. Its face value of 1 US Dollar grants it the status of legal tender within the United States. One unique aspect of the American Eagle silver coin is the government's guarantee of its purity, weight, and fineness, providing investors with added confidence in its authenticity and quality.
