The American Silver Eagle, first minted in 1986, is considered by some to be the most beautiful U.S. silver coin ever minted. Silver Eagles are available primarily in two formats, bullion Silver Eagles which are more readily available, and Proof Silver Eagles which are most desired by collectors. Proof Silver Eagles have been given more shine and have been struck twice to make the beautiful design of the coin that much more detailed.
