The History of the Silver American Eagle Coin
The first idea of selling silver bullion minted in coins came in the 1970s and early 1980s, in order to reduce the National Defense Stockpile. But the fear of reducing the need for in-state mining and the silver spot, made refiners disagree with it.
Despite the refiners' concern, the government executed the plan and a large amount of silver was sold, but not as silver bullion coins. Consequently, the silver price dropped and the domino effect began: traders started unloading their futures and the price of silver fell again.
It was only in 1985 that the US government managed to reorganize the selling of silver bullion coins. With the passing of a bill called “The Liberty Coin Act”, the US Mint released the American Silver Eagle Program in 1986 the first silver coins were minted in San Francisco.
The San Francisco Mint had been the exclusive mint facility to produce the American Silver Eagle coins until 1999, when other locations were enabled to produce the coins with the same high standard quality, like Philadelphia and the West Point Mint.
Since 1986, a series of bullion silver eagle coins have been annually released by the US Mint and because of that, the American Eagle Silver Coins have become a valuable collectible for those who are interested in precious metals and varying their investment portfolio.
The Design of the Coin (1986 - 2021)
The design of the Silver Eagle coin was inspired by America’s values and portrays its main symbols.
The obverse of the bullion silver eagle coin was based on Adolph A. Weinman’s 1916 “Walking Liberty”, in which Lady Liberty, enveloped in the American flag, walks to the rising sun and opens her arm in a sign of tenderness and welcome to those who look for shelter and a better life in the US lands. This side of the coin contains the inscriptions “LIBERTY” and the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” as well.
The reverse of the coin contains the original design by John Mercanti. It shows the heraldic eagle, present in so many other pieces from American coinage history and in the Presidential Seal. It shows an eagle with a striped shield on its breast. It holds branches of oak and arrows on its talons, representing America’s desire for peace, but at the same time, always alert for the possibility of war. On its beak, the eagle holds a banner with the motto “E PLURIBUS UNUM”. Above the bird’s head, there are thirteen five-pointed stars, representing the original colonies. Encircling the outer rim are the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ~ 1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR”.
In 2021, the US Mint launched a new reverse, by artist Emily Damstra. The main American symbol from the original version of the coin remains the same: the bald eagle, but in a more natural state.
