The American Silver Eagle is the only official investment grade US coin by the US Mint, and contains one troy ounce of .999 pure silver.
In 1986 the United States Mint began striking the modern American Silver Eagle coin. The coin’s obverse design is patterned after Adolph A. Weinman’s (1870-1952) design of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, used between 1916-1947.
The reverse depicts the classic bald eagle- America’s classic symbol for liberty and freedom.
Silver Eagles have a face value of one dollar.
As an official US Mint product, Silver Eagles are eligible for IRA accounts, making them perfectly suited for your retirement account.
