The 1997 1 oz American Eagle silver coin marks another celebrated entry in the acclaimed series launched by the United States Mint in 1986. Drawing commendations from both collectors and investors, the 1997 edition continues to exceed the exceptional standards established by earlier issues.

Distinguished by its .999 fine silver purity, remarkable craftsmanship, and the Mint's commitment to flawlessness, each American Eagle silver bullion coin is a coveted item for those passionate about silver.

With a currency nominal face value of one dollar, the actual market value of these silver treasures far exceeds this, positioning them as a favored alternative to conventional silver bullion coins.

  • Content: Minted from .999 fine silver, the 1997 American Silver Eagle achieves a 99.9% level of purity, mesmerizing both numismatists and precious metal investors. It is also IRA-eligible, offering a prudent option for enhancing retirement investments.

  • Weight: Consistent with the series' specifications, the coin weighs 31.103 grams, or 1 troy ounce.

  • Diameter: The coin boasts a diameter of 40.6 mm, providing a generous platform for its renowned design.

  • Mintage: The 1997 American Silver Eagles are particularly prized within the series for their scarcity and collector appeal, boasting a limited mintage of 4,295,004 coins at the Philadelphia Mint.

  • Mint Location: Meticulously struck at the Philadelphia Mint, these coins are typically issued without a mint mark, in keeping with the tradition for bullion Silver Eagles until 2021.

  • Certificate of Authenticity: Each coin includes a COA, verifying its authenticity and premium condition.

The collectible uncirculated Silver Eagle series continues to captivate both collectors and investors with its stunning design and numismatic value. Encased in protective packaging, the coin's significant silver content and precision minting are scrupulously maintained.

Design and Inspiration:

The obverse design by Adolph A. Weinman for the 1997 American Silver Eagle showcases the dynamic "Walking Liberty" half-dollar design, with Liberty enveloped in the flag, progressing towards a hopeful future adorned with symbols of honor and bravery. This figure is directed towards a sun casting 13 rays, representing the unity of the original colonies.

John Mercanti's reverse design presents a stately heraldic eagle, safeguarded by a liberty shield and holding an olive branch and arrows, denoting peace and vigilance, under 13 stars for the founding states. The eagle proudly bears the motto "E PLURIBUS UNUM," emphasizing the nation's ethos of unity from diversity. The inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR” frame the design.

The 1997 installment of the American Silver Eagle underscores the U.S. Mint's dedication to exceptional artisanship, capturing a crucial segment of American numismatic tradition. Its elaborate design and substantial silver content make it an indispensable asset for collectors and investors.

These US Mint 1997 American Silver Eagles, available as standard, non-graded coins, see their market value significantly outperform that of ordinary silver bullion coins.
