The history of U.S. Silver Eagles
The 1 oz Silver Eagle is legal U.S. currency, but these Silver coins are typically not used as currency because their value in Silver far exceeds their face value. Silver coin prices began exceeding the face value of these coins in the 1960s when the Silver spot price dramatically climbed on the world markets, and in 1965, the U.S. began making coins with less Silver. In 1985, U.S. Silver Eagles were authorized by the Liberty Coin Act, as offered investment-grade Silver that can be traded. The 2012 Silver coins from that act are .999 fine Silver, as opposed to the pre-1965 coins that were generally .900 fine Silver.
Why invest in U.S. Silver Eagles?
U.S. Silver Eagles are authorized by the U.S. government, meaning their creation was specified by an act of Congress, which offers another level of assurances of the quality of these investment-grade coins. These 2012 Silver coins meet exact specifications for purity, size and weight that are laid down in law. A 1 oz Silver Eagle will always be the same weight and fineness, no matter the year or which U.S. Mint it was produced at, so you always know exactly what you are getting. The premium with U.S. Silver coin prices reflects that coins created by the U.S. Mint are guaranteed, an important insurance for investors.
