American Eagle Silver Coins for Sale
The American Silver Eagle has been minted annually since 1986. It is both the largest and heaviest United States coin, and it is the best-known and most easily recognised silver bullion coin in the world. Based on Adolph A. Weinman's original design of the 1916 “Walking Dollar,” this coin is considered to be one of the most beautiful American coins ever minted. Its design features Lady Liberty walking across a landscape with a billowing flag streaming behind her in the morning sun. American Silver Eagles are highly valued investment grade coins. These are the only silver coins that are allowed in an investment retirement account because their weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States government. Despite the fact that the silver content of the coins themselves are worth more than their face value, they are considered legal tender.
