US Mint Silver Eagles

Dating back to 1986, the American Silver Eagle is the official bullion coin of the United States and is minted by the US Mint. Crafted of 99.9% fine silver, and only struck in the 1 troy ounce size, the Silver American Eagle is legal tender and has a face value of $1 independent of the silver content. The Silver Eagle is considered one of the most beautiful silver coins to ever come from the US Mint.

The Silver Eagle Design

The Silver Eagle is an iconic design that is recognized around the world. The Walking Liberty obverse was created by Adolph Weinman for the Walking Liberty Half Dollar that was used as early as 1916. The text boldly states "Liberty" and "In God We Trust" along with the year of issue. The Silver Eagle receives its moniker due to the reverse, as it includes an eagle with wings lifted high and 13 stars representing the 13 original states. The text includes "United States of America", "1 oz Fine Silver ~ One Dollar", and "E Pluribus Unum". This design continues to be used through the current year.

Bullion and Proof Dollar Coins

At SD Bullion, we primarily deal in either bullion or Proof American Eagles. Proof coins are the most collectible types of coins for sale from the United States mint; they have finer detail, a shinier finish, and are far more rare than bullion. These coins also come with a higher price tag. Bullion silver dollar coins are also called “Brilliant Uncirculated”, and are the more common type of U S Mint Silver Eagles. These coins were originally intended to create a silver-rich market, driving the price of silver down during the mid 1980s. Since the year 2000, Silver Eagle production has again been on the rise. By 2010, there were more than 34 million American Eagle Coins on the market.

Certified and Uncirculated American Eagle Coins

These two types of US Silver Eagle coins are often confused for one another. The first is certified, which means that the coins have been certified and graded by a professional rating company, such as PCGS or NGC. These coins are the premium versions of the US Mint silver coins, in outstanding condition and of a much higher value than simple loose bullion. Uncirculated coins, from the U S Mint (, are also in fantastic shape. They have never been used as currency, or “circulated”, hence the term “uncirculated.” In addition to certified and uncirculated American Silver Eagles, we also carry proof sets, rolls, and sealed monster boxes.

The Doc's Take on United States Mint Silver Eagles

Looking to invest in the silver market? Looking for a gift to give to the younger one's in the family? This lot is a great option not only as a personal investing option, but also as a great way to get a gift for the family to instill the value of investing for the future. The beautiful American Silver Eagle is without a doubt one of the most recognizable world government minted coins. The Silver American Eagle also retains it value as one of the highest premiums available within the silver investment coin market.

Despite the ramped up production of American Eagles in the U.S. market, silver continues to be one of the steadiest investments a person can make. For example, 1 oz of silver today has nearly the same purchase power that it did 30 years ago; the dollar, on the other hand, has drastically dropped in value. Buying silver coins to pass on to the next generation could be a much wiser option than putting away savings in dollars, for that very reason. Additionally, silver coins make a great diversifier for your portfolio, offering you a globally recognized, valuable asset that is used for everything from currency to medicine and industry. And because silver is, ultimately, a finite resource, now is the perfect time to invest in this precious metal.
