Released in 1986, the American Silver Eagle coin is America’s only official investment-grade silver bullion coin. It is also the world’s only silver bullion coin whose weight, content, and purity are guaranteed by the government of the United States. The American Silver Eagle has a face value of one dollar and contains one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.
Considered some of the most beautiful coins ever minted, Silver Eagles are among the finest silver coins issued by the United States. The obverse of the Silver Eagle coin depicts the Walking Liberty design created by Adolph A. Weinman which was also used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins issued from 1916 to 1947. This image is one of the most cherished and well-known designs ever to grace coins minted by the United States. The reverse side of the American Silver Eagle coin is just as impressive, featuring an American eagle - the very symbol of our nation’s freedom, patriotism, and pride.
Besides their stunning designs, the Silver Eagle coins also appeal to collectors and investors for their value in investment portfolios. Eligible for placement in IRAs, Silver Eagles can act as building blocks for investments that will never lose all of their value.

Under the Pittman Act in 1918, millions of Morgan Silver dollars were melted in to pay for World War One. One provision of the Act was that after the war, silver dollars were to be minted again. In 1921, the Peace Dollar was designed and struck. These were the last large silver dollars minted for circulation and production ceased after 1935. We offer individual Peace Dollars in circulated condition.
Silver also comes in privately minted coins (rounds) and silver bars in various designs. The rounds are minted in 1oz and the bars come in 1oz to 100oz size.
