History of Silver EaglesThe American government approved the sale of Silver in 1985 and the Silver Eagles debuted less than one year later. In addition to Lady Liberty and the eagle, 13 stars appear on the coin to represent the 13 original colonies. These American symbols make the Silver Eagles highly desirable among numismatists, whether they buy them for a permanent collection or for future resale.
The Silver Eagles' popularity has grown so quickly that two U.S. Mints now produce these coins. They come from both San Francisco and West Point, and Early Release coins often move quickly because of the coins' desirability. Don't miss the opportunity to add U.S. Mint Silver Eagles to your collection and to enjoy their beauty for years to come.

Why Silver Eagles Retain ValueSilver bullion collectors often focus on Silver Eagles because of their history and beauty. They are among the only U.S. Mint Silver coins to fall under the U.S. government's guarantee, which makes them even more attractive. Over time, they appreciate because of their collectibility.
Each of these Silver Eagles contain 1 oz of .999 fine Silver with a perfect rating from NGC, which means they contain no post-production imperfections, even at five times magnification. Damaged coins can prove significantly less valuable than coins with no imperfections, which is why collectors and investors appreciate the NGC grading system.
U.S. Mint Silver has a long history of collectibility, but this is particularly true of the Silver Eagles. These iconic Silver coins feature two major American icons: Lady Liberty on the obverse and the American eagle on the reverse.
