The 1991 American Silver Eagle: A Beacon for Collectors and Investors Alike

The 1991 American Silver Eagle solidifies its position as a cornerstone in the illustrious series initiated by the United States Mint in 1986. Garnering widespread acclaim from both collectors and investors, the 1991 edition continues to embody the exemplary qualities its predecessors are renowned for.

Praised for its .999 fine silver content, exceptional craftsmanship, and the Mint's relentless pursuit of perfection, each American Eagle silver bullion coin is a sought-after jewel for silver aficionados.

Despite its nominal face value of one dollar, the intrinsic value of these silver pieces significantly surpasses this, making them a more attractive proposition than ordinary silver bullion coins.

Coin Highlights:

  • Content: The 1991 American Silver Eagle is minted from .999 fine silver, reaching a purity level of 99.9%, captivating both numismatists and precious metal investors alike. Additionally, this coin qualifies for Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), offering a solid option for those looking to bolster their retirement funds.

  • Weight: Adhering to the series' standards, the silver coin boasts a weight of 31.103 grams, or 1 troy ounce.

  • Diameter: Measuring 40.6 mm in diameter, the coin provides an ample surface to exhibit its distinguished design.

  • Thickness: With a thickness of 2.98 mm, the coin's robust feel and enduring quality are assured.

  • Edge: Sporting a reeded edge, this feature contributes to the coin's classic aesthetic and tactile allure.

  • Iconic Design: The obverse is adorned with Adolph A. Weinman's celebrated "Walking Liberty" design, epitomizing freedom and advancement. On the reverse, designed by John Mercanti, a majestic eagle is depicted beneath 13 stars, symbolizing the original thirteen colonies.

  • Mintage: The 1991 American Silver Eagles are particularly prized within the series for their limited availability and desirability among collectors, with a production run of 7,191,066 coins at the Philadelphia Mint.

  • Mint Location: Precisely minted at the Philadelphia Mint, these coins typically come without a mint mark, continuing the tradition for bullion Silver Eagles until 2021.

The collectible uncirculated Silver Eagle series persistently attracts the attention of both collectors and investors for its exquisite design and numismatic significance. Housed in protective packaging, the coin's substantial silver content and minting precision are meticulously preserved. Although we don't offer grading, these slab coins are highly regarded as valuable collectibles and investments, regardless of the year.

Our inventory also features Proof American Silver Eagles, American Gold Eagles, and American Platinum Eagles.

Design and Inspiration:

Adolph A. Weinman's obverse design for the 1991 American Silver Eagle portrays the dynamic "Walking Liberty" half-dollar design, with Liberty adorned in the flag, marching towards a bright future while bearing symbols of honor and courage. This figure moves towards a sun radiating 13 rays, signifying the unity of the original colonies.

John Mercanti's reverse design illustrates a dignified heraldic eagle, shielded and clutching symbols of peace and vigilance, beneath 13 stars representing the founding states. The eagle proudly bears the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM," underlining the nation's principle of unity from diversity. The inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” frame the design.

The 1991 edition of the American Silver Eagle showcases the U.S. Mint's commitment to outstanding craftsmanship, capturing a vital piece of American numismatic history. Its detailed design and valuable silver content make it an indispensable asset for collectors and investors alike.

These US Mint 1991 American Silver Eagles are offered as standard, non-graded coins, yet their market value significantly exceeds that of regular silver bullion coins.

Important to Remember: The silver coins offered in Brilliantly Uncirculated (BU) condition can exhibit natural signs of wear such as marks, blemishes, and tarnish. This is particularly common for older silver coins that have been in contact with air containing sulfur gases. Traces of sulfur, which are naturally found in the air, lead to the discoloration and darkening of silver over time.
