Obverse Design of the American Silver Eagle

Silver Eagle Obverse DesignStruck in 1 Oz. of 99.9% pure silver, each stunning coin features exceptional medalist and architectural sculptor Adolph A. Weinman's classic "Walking Liberty" design, first used on the Half Dollar from 1917 to 1947. Weinman's flag-draped Lady Liberty strides confidently toward the sunrise, carrying branches of laurel and oak that symbolize both civil and military glory, while her right hand reaches out to the world.

Reverse Design of the American Silver Eagle

Silver Eagle Obverse DesignThe reverse displays the original 1986 spread-winged eagle design created by John Mercanti, the 12th and last of the U.S. Mint's Chief Engravers. During his tenure, Mercanti produced more coin and medal designs than any employee in the mint's 223-year history, including the 1984 Olympic $10 gold piece (the first U.S. gold coin struck in 51 years), the 1986 Statue of Liberty silver dollar, the obverse of the 1991 Eisenhower silver dollar, as well as the Arkansas, Iowa, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia State Quarters.

What are the Diameter, Weight and Silver Content of Silver Eagles?

American Silver Eagles have legal tender status with a face value of $1 and are government guaranteed as 1 Troy oz. of 99.9% pure silver. Silver eagles have a diameter of 40.6mm and a weight of 31.1 grams.

Non-Reportable Status of American Silver Eagles

The American Silver Eagle is the only silver coin allowed in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA). Its long-standing appeal is magnified by its non-reportable status, making Silver Eagles the preferred choice of serious numismatists for assured privacy, safety, and security.

Are Silver Eagles Available in Monster Boxes?

Yes, Silver Eagles are available in Monster boxes allowing you to conveniently add 500 troy oz. of silver at a low premium over spot. Each Silver Eagle Monster Box boasts 25 tubes of 20 American Silver Eagle Coins.

What Silver Eagle Finishes are Available?

Since their initial release, U.S. Eagle Silver Dollars have appeared in five distinctive finishes:

  1. Mint State / Brilliant Uncirculated
  2. Proof
  3. Reverse Proof
  4. Burnished
  5. Enhanced Uncirculated
  6. Enhanced Reverse Proof
Each is spectacular on its own, but savvy numismatists will want at least one of each!

Silver Eagle Mintages

A year-by-year list of silver eagle mintage figures is available in our InfoVault: Mintages of Silver Eagles by Year.

Uncirculated Silver Eagles

The terms "Mint State (MS)" and "Uncirculated (UNC)" are used interchangeably to describe brand new, legal tender Silver Eagles that never entered circulation, and show no trace of everyday wear and tear. ModernCoinMart offers a full selection of Mint State Silver Eagles - including flawless and near-perfect coins encapsulated and graded by trusted third party grading companies Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) or Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

Burnished Silver Eagles

The United States Mint added a Burnished finish to their American Eagle series in 2006 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the first Silver Eagle issue in 1986. Burnished American Silver Eagles feature a satiny, matte finish and carry the "W" mint mark of the West Point Mint.

Proof Silver Eagles

Among the very best coins produced by the U.S. Mint, Proof Silver Eagles are made with highly-polished planchets (blanks). Each struck two or more times under intense pressure with fresh, new dies for high-relief details, distinctive mirror-like backgrounds, and frosted, sculpted foregrounds.

Silver Eagle Sets

Sets of American Silver Eagles are sometimes available from the U.S. Mint, but are most often assembled by ModernCoinMart (MCM) from thousands of coins purchased separately over months, if not years. Whether a set is assembled by year of issue, finish, grade, or a combination of all three options, our Silver Eagle sets can help you jump start your assortment, without the hassle of searching for individual coins.
