The Silver Eagle is the most popular bullion coin in the world. This stunning Silver bullion coin is a valued investment for its 1 oz metal content, beautiful patriotic design and government guarantee.

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 direct from the U.S. Mint and pass them along to you.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Multiples of 20 are packaged in mint tubes. Multiples of 500 are packaged in “Monster Boxes.” All other coins will be in protective packaging.
  • Multiples of 100 are packaged in five 20-coin mint tubes, which will be placed into a Silver Eagle APMEX® Mini Monster Box (9 3/4” x 2 1/2” x 3 1/2”). Mini Monster Boxes are stackable with other APMEX® MintDirect® Singles storage boxes and APMEX® Monster Boxes.
  • Eligible for Precious Metals IRAs.

The 2018 Silver Eagle has History on its Side

First released November 24, 1986, the 1 oz Silver American Eagle quickly became the most popular Silver bullion coin not only in the United States, but in the entire world. The initial run sold out immediately “due to the phenomenal demand.” The Silver Eagle enjoys a special prestige as the only Silver bullion coin backed by the U.S. government. In fact, this Silver coin is so highly sought after that in 2014 and 2015 the U.S. Mint could not match its level of production to consumer demand. In 2013, after a historic drop in Silver prices, demand increased so much that the U.S. Mint had to ration the sale of Silver coins for 18 months.

The driving force behind the creation of the Silver American Eagle was the government’s desire to sell off some of the Silver from the Defense National Stockpile. Although states with heavy mining interests and some legislators opposed the sale of the Silver, in 1985 the Senate agreed to permit Silver sales. In 2002, after it became apparent the stockpile of Silver would be depleted, an additional bill was passed that would allow the government to purchase Silver on the open market once it became necessary.

The design of this particular Silver bullion coin is steeped in American heritage and tradition. On the obverse of the coin is an adaptation of Adolph A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” design, which was originally used on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947. This iconic artwork was beloved by American citizens and thus was a natural choice years later as the mint selected historic designs to appear on the 1 oz Silver American Eagle. The reverse features a heraldic eagle holding an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other with a shield on its chest. In its beak, the bird carries a banner reading, “E Pluribus Unum.” Above the eagle are 13 stars, a representation of the original 13 colonies. This image harkens to the Great Seal of the United States.

These Silver bullion coins do not bear mintmarks, differentiating them from the Proof and Burnished versions, which do include a mintmark. From 1986 to 1998, they were manufactured at the San Francisco Mint. From 1999 to 2000, production was moved to the Philadelphia Mint. Since 2001, the 1 oz Silver American Eagle has been produced at the West Point Mint in New York, which is colloquially called the “Fort Knox of Silver.” Starting in 2011, due to the coin’s immense popularity, the San Francisco Mint began minting Silver American Eagles to supplement the output from the West Point Mint.

The Silver American Eagle Features an Iconic American Design

The 1 oz Silver American Eagle coin’s reverse depicts an American eagle behind a shield, bearing arrows in its left talon and an olive branch in its right. This design echoes the Great Seal of the United States designed by John Mercanti, the 12th chief engraver of the U.S. Mint, who retired in 2010. Mercanti was the most prolific engraver in U.S. Mint history, designing more medal and coin artwork than any other mint engraver. Precious Metals investors may well remember the 1984 Olympic Gold $10 coin, the 1986 Statue of Liberty Dollar coin or the 1989 Congress Bicentennial Gold $5 coin that all sport his work.

When Purchasing 2018 Silver Eagles, Understand Premium Over Spot

Many investors especially like Silver American Eagles because the premium-over-spot price is generally fairly low. When you plan to buy Precious Metal items, watch the spot price of Silver, which is the cost of raw, unfabricated Silver, for the best time to purchase. When you buy Silver coins, you pay spot price of Silver plus a premium, which includes the cost of fabrication, distribution, a small dealer fee and any numismatic value. Many investors prize U.S. Silver coins and other items offering a low premium-over-spot price to be the best for growing their portfolios.
The 2018 Silver Eagles are the most anticipated Silver 2018 bullion American coin in the world today.

Recent purchase

I recently made another purchase from APMEX, and once again the whole experience was a very pleasurable experience. This time I purchased some coins and some air-tite holders. Once again, my order arrived ahead of schedule, extremely well packed and all item arrived in immaculate condition. The packaging was very protective and secure. It is a sincere pleasure to do business with APMEX, They really treat the customer exceptionally well. I would buy from them again without hesitation, and would highly recommend them to any other buyers.

Great Company--I will be buying again!

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

APMEX online is easy to order and do business with. The product is as advertised! It is difficult for me to distinguish between MS-68-69 or 70 with respect to these BU 2018 American Silver Eagles! They are all pristine. While, I do understand these are bullion coins, their beauty is amazing, and having unblemished bullion coins is a [psychological] plus in my view. I will be ordering on a regular basis, as I truly now believe, the future for Silver is very positive!

Classic, can't go wrong with these

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

A beautiful/classic round at a good price, and probably one of the easiest 1oz rounds to sell...pretty much everybody likes these. I don't like to spend a lot over spot, but I also want something that I enjoy owning, so these are a great go-to coin.
