Silver American Eagles (San Francisco Mint)
San Francisco Mint Silver Eagles - Silver Eagles are among the finest Silver coins issued by the United States and are considered one of the most beautiful coins ever minted. Due to popular demand, the U.S. Mint began minting Silver American Eagles at the San Francisco Mint again. APMEX carries a great selection of San Francisco Mint Silver Eagles, from MintDirect® to Monster Boxes!
The obverse of the Silver Eagle coin depicts the Walking Liberty design created by Adolph A. Weinman. Also used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar coins issued from 1916 to 1947, the Walking Liberty image on the Silver Eagle coin is one of the most cherished and well-known designs ever to grace coins minted by the United States. The reverse of the American Silver Eagle coin is just as impressive as the obverse featuring an American eagle, the very symbol of our nation’s freedom and echoes patriotism and national pride.
The San Francisco Mint was originally established to serve Gold mines that appeared during the Gold rush in 1854. They have played an integral part of minting history every since, producing bullion for decades. The American Silver Eagle was struck by the San Francisco Mint from 1986 to 1998, but production came back again to the San Francisco Mint in 2011. The high demand for 1 oz Silver coins helped facilitate the need for the American Silver Eagle to be processed at the San Francisco Mint. The Mint does not currently produce circulating coins.
