1 oz American Silver Eagle Design

Introduced in 1986, the Silver American Eagle is arguably one of the most successful, best-selling bullion silver coins in the world. With almost four decades of popularity in the precious metals market, the series went through its first major change in mid-2021, through the redesign of the coin's reverse. With the 2022 issue, for the first time in Silver Eagle's history the bullion coin will have an entire year of mintage with the new reverse design.

The classic depiction of Lady Liberty, conceived by sculptor Adolph A. Weinman highlights the obverse of the 2022 Silver Eagle coin. In her undulating robes, the Goddess Liberty is shown in a stride towards the horizon, with the sun behind her breaking the mountainous landscape. Embraced by an American flag that flows with the breeze, Lady Liberty holds branches of laurel and oak in her left arm, while her right one reaches forward. Arching over the silver coin's upper half is the word "LIBERTY", in spread out letters. To the right of the Goddess' leg is the U.S national motto "IN GOD WE TRUST", present in all U.S coins. Modern design technology made possible for enhancements in the coin's obverse. This is visible through the inscripted artist mark of Adolph A. Weinman under the national motto. Inscripted beneath Lady Liberty's feet is "2022", the year of the coin's mintage. 

The reimagined reverse of the Silver American Eagle coin shows a bald eagle amidst flight, as devised by AIP designer Emily Damstra. The national bird is depicted moments before landing, holding an oak branch in its talons, as if to add it to its nest. Around the coin's edge, the inscriptions read "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA", "1 OZ. FINE SILVER" and "ONE DOLLAR". The national motto, "E PLURIBUS UNUM", is etched above the weight of the coin.

Coin Mintage

All 2022 American Silver Eagles are minted using 1 troy ounce (31.103 grams) of .999 fine silver. These silver coins have a diameter of 40.6 mm (1.598 in) and come in Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition. The Silver American Eagle is minted solely weighing 1 ounce, while the American Gold Eagle is minted in weights of 1 ounce, ½ ounce, ¼ ounce and 1/10 ounce.

The minting process of the Silver Eagle bullion coin starts with silver blanks, which the U.S Mint acquires from the private, Idaho-based Sunshine Mint. All blanks are manually tested by U.S Mint employees, along with regular laboratory assessments of weight, size, density and purity. Before leaving the mint or being housed in coin tubes, all Silver Eagles are examined by hand and their counting of 20 examples per tube is checked. 

The American Silver Eagle Series

The popular American Eagle Coin Program was launched in 1986 by the United States Mint. It initially featured yearly releases of the American Eagle Silver Coin and the American Eagle Gold Coin. The coins quickly became a top pick for the coin collector to the bullion investors. The top-notch craftsmanship and intricate designs demonstrated in its products helped consolidate the program as one of the most successful bullion coin programs in the world.

Following the successful integration of their gold and silver coins, the U.S Mint has expanded to include Platinum and Palladium coins. The American Platinum Eagle had its entry in 1997, and the American Palladium Eagle in 2017. For owners of a coin collection, the U.S Mint manufactures proof coin versions of the American Eagle series.

Why Buy The New 2022 Silver Eagle?

A number of factors account for the popularity of the Silver Eagle coin, the official silver bullion coin of the United States. Due to it being the best-selling silver coin in the world, the 1 oz Silver Eagle can be a relatively safe investment. This gives the coin a highly liquid status, meaning investors can buy and sell them very easily. For new investors in silver bullion, the Silver Eagle can be a great option to consider.

In addition, the year 2022 marks the 36th year of release of the American Eagles Program. It is also the first entire year in which the coins are minted with their new reverse design, which was introduced in mid-2021 through the 2021 Silver Eagle Type 2. With over half a billion American Eagle silver coins sold since their introduction in 1986, this issue is set to further extend the Program's fruitful history.
