The History of 2015 Silver Eagles

Aiming to reduce America's silver bullion stockpile and pay for the federal budget, in the 1970s and early 1980s, the US Government attempted to sell silver bullion, despite all opposition from many refiners. 

The refiner’s concerns became a reality and the first attempt was not successful. This was due to large amounts of silver being sold-off - not as silver eagle coins, as firstly idealized - and as a result, the price of silver dropped almost immediately and traders decided to unload their assets.

Only in 1985, the US Government, through President Reagan, signed the “Liberty Coin Act”, and amended the bill reorganizing the American Silver Eagle program and establishing rules and stipulations for the first sale of silver eagle coins . Then, in 1986, the first American Eagle Silver Dollar Coin was finally minted and released in November of the same year.

Every year since 1986, the United States Mint has annually released a series of mint bullion coins which turned American Silver Eagles into a collectible series of silver coins for a long time. The 2015 Lady Liberty Silver Dollar is also an excellent gift for people interested in precious metal products.

The Design of the Coins (1986 - 2021)

Based on the classic 1916 half dollar design, the American Silver Eagle coin brings the feelings and pride intrinsic to America’s main principles and represents the security of the silver value.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin was created by Adolph A. Weinman and named “Walking Liberty”. In the picture, Lady Liberty walks through an open field heading to the sun, which rises over a ridge. Dressed with a traditional toga and carrying the American flag, she has one opened arm as a welcome gesture to the ones who come to America looking for a better life and in the other arm, she carries a bundle of oak and olive branch, as a sign of generosity.

Reverse Design

The reverse side of the coin was designed by John Mercanti and represents strength and endurance. The display depicts the heraldic eagle, wings open around a star-spangled shield and its beak carries a banner written “E Pluribus Unum”, which means “out of many, one”. Above the eagle design, we can see the thirteen stars symbolizing the original colonies. 

In 2021, the American Eagle Coin Program turned 35 years old. And to celebrate this special occasion, the US Mint updated some minting procedures in order to add to the obverse of the silver bullion coins specific details from Weinman’s original project that were not possible before.

What is Special About the 2015 American Silver Eagle?

The American Silver Eagle is, undoubtedly, one of the most popular coins in the US, specially to coin collectors, due to its history and annual releases. But the anniversary series made the American Eagle collection even more attractive and interesting to collectors and investors. So, the 2015 1 oz American Silver Eagle Bullion also became a “must-have” item to compose this collection.

Moreover, the 2015 Silver Eagle gained special attention due to its coin production history. 

As mentioned before, the US Mint has been releasing the American Eagle Silver Bullion since 1986 and the mint facilities used to produce them have periodically been varying along the years.

From the first release in 1986 to 1999, the San Francisco Mint was the facility in charge of the silver eagle bullion coins production. During a similar period (1988-1998), silver bullion was also minted by the West Point Mint. And from 2001 on, the West Point was supposed to be the only mint of production. 

How Many Silver Eagles were Minted in 2015?

Recently, it was discovered that the American Silver Eagle coins were also minted in San Francisco and Philadelphia mints between 2014 and 2017. The US Mint explained that almost 17 million coins were minted in these facilities. But out of this number, only 79,640 2015 silver dollar coins were minted, which is a very small quantity. 

And this makes the 2015 Silver Eagle coins that were minted in these specific facilities even more precious and rare.
