History of the American Silver Eagle Program
The U.S. Mint attempted to establish selling Silver bullion in the 1970s and early 1980s to help reduce the Defense National Stockpile. The reasoning was that domestic needs exceeded that of strategic needs. Many refiners had actually opposed the plan due to concerns of diminishing the need of in-state mining and possible reduction of Silver spot at the time. Throughout the back-and-forth, the United States did end up selling-off large amounts of Silver (roughly 105 million troy ounces) but not as coin, as they had originally intended. When this happened, it did in fact cause the price of Silver to drop immediately. Many traders started unloading futures with the anticipation that price would fall, which it did. Over a span of several years and suspensions, it wasn’t until June 21, 1985, that the senate finally agreed to an amendment by a voice vote. The amended bill was signed by President Reagan on July 9, 1985. The bill, know as the “Liberty Coin Act” authorized the law of the American Silver Eagle program with an effective date of October 1, 1985, but came with stipulations that no coins may be struck or sold until September 1, 1986. Finally, after all of this, the first American Silver Eagle was released on November 24, 1986, which has gone on to become one of the most beloved, best-selling coins in the world.

The Design (1986 to 2021)
The obverse (front) of the coin was taken from the “Walking Liberty”, originally designed by Adolph A. Weinman, in 1916. The iconic design had already been a public favorite and one of the most beloved of any United States coinage of modern times which made it an instant favorite among collectors and enthusiasts once released. The reverse (back) was designed by John Mercanti that portrayed a heraldic eagle behind a shield the eagle holds a banner in its beak while grasping an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left, that echoes the Great Seal of the United States. Above the eagle and below the legend is thirteen five-pointed stars representing the original Thirteen Colonies.

Direct from the U.S. Mint
The U.S. Mint does not sell its bullion coins directly to the public. Instead, they distribute their coins to only a handful of authorized purchasers who then sell the coins to the public. As one of these authorized purchasers, APMEX is able to get coins directly from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you, our customer.

NOTE: The coins you receive may exhibit some level of natural toning and/or oxidation such as spotting. This is a normal process that and can occur over time when exposed to hydrogen sulfide which is naturally occurring in the air.

Store your 2017 U.S. Silver Eagles at Citadel, where you can track holdings.

To protect your 2017 Silver Eagle coins or any other Precious Metals, use Citadel Global Depository Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of APMEX. Those 1 oz Silver Eagle coins take up a lot of space, but Citadel will keep them separate from other holdings while also protecting the bullion against theft, damage or loss. Silver coin prices can vary quickly, and Citadel offers tracking and management tools online as well as free delivery on demand when you are ready to sell.

my 1st silver eagle

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I had learned about the silver eagle and had bought some generic silver with a similar design. no scratches on the coin but not very shiny and the design has barely changed in 30+ years now that I have it in my collection i think I'll just stick to generic silver. my generic silver coin has almost a proof finish and has more security features than the real silver dollar

  • Easy to Sell
  • Mint Condition
  • Cons
  • Unattractive Design
  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Bottom Line
  • No, I would not recommend this to a friend
