APMEX offers a wide assortment of Proof Silver American Eagles to add to your collection. We sell these coins in both current and backdated issues. Released in 1986, the Silver American Eagle 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 United States Government. The American Silver Eagle has a face value of one dollar and contains one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.
The obverse features Adolph A. Weinman’s beautiful Walking Liberty design originally used on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916 through 1947. The reverse design depicts John Mercanti’s rendition of an eagle and a shield, symbolic of American strength and pride.
