Circulated Cull American Silver Eagles: Tarnished or Spotted

The American Silver Eagle is a beloved silver bullion coin produced by the United States Mint since 1986.

While pristine versions of these coins are highly sought after by collectors, circulated cull Silver Eagles offer a unique investment opportunity.

These U.S. Mint silver bullion coins are tarnished, spotted, or scratched, and do not possess significant numismatic value.

However, these Silver American Eagles retain their melt value due to their high silver content and are an excellent choice for investors focused on silver's market value rather than its collectible appeal.

Coin Highlights:

  • Purity: Each US Mint silver coin is composed of .999 fine silver, equivalent to 99.9% pure silver.

  • Weight: Contains 1 troy ounce of pure silver.

  • Diameter: Measures 1.598 inches (40.6 mm) in width.

  • Condition: Tarnished, spotted, or scratched, classified as cull coins.

  • Value Basis: Primarily valued for their silver content rather than any numismatic value.

  • Minting Period: Produced continuously by the U.S. Mint from 1986 to the present.

  • Legal Tender: Recognized as legal tender with a face value of one US dollar ($1 USD).

  • Global Appeal: Highly liquid and sought after worldwide, making them easy to sell on the secondary market.

  • Cull Silver Eagles: Offer 99.9% purity, making them a more refined silver investment compared to junk silver, which typically has 90% purity.

  • Affordability: More affordable than pristine Silver Eagles, making them accessible for new and budget-conscious investors.

  • High Liquidity: The global recognition and demand for American Silver Eagles ensure that even cull versions are highly liquid. They can be easily sold on the secondary market, providing flexibility for investors.

  • Investment Option: Cull Silver Eagles can be included in Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs), offering a tax-advantaged way to invest in silver.


  • Obverse: Features the Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, with inscriptions "Liberty," "IN GOD WE TRUST," and the year of issuance.

  • Reverse: The Type-1 design displays the heraldic eagle with a liberty shield, designed by John Mercanti, holding an olive branch and arrows in its talons, along with the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "1 OZ. FINE SILVER-ONE DOLLAR," and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" on a banner in its beak.


Circulated cull Silver Eagles are a practical choice for silver investors. Despite their tarnished, spotted, or scratched appearances, these coins maintain a high silver content and are globally recognized, ensuring their liquidity and value.

They are an excellent option for those looking to invest in silver without the premium associated with numismatic value, making them a sound addition to any precious metals portfolio.

    Excellent value for trusted Silver
    I am very Happy with my Silver Eagle purchase. Half tarnished, quarter cloudy, quarter lightly circulated. I have made Four purchases from Money Metals and have been very pleased with the quality, price, and timeliness of them all.

    Gold and Silver Is Discovering it's True Value!
    I don't buy circulated silver, Retired on a budget I get what I can , when I can. Silver is so much more than people know, Silver I think is heading just like gold and Plutonium, etc. Into a scarceness that will force Nations to actually explore asteroids for what they have in them? Probably everything we have here! I hope to make a silver eagles soon. Good Luck Friends. M.M. Great Place too shop! .

    My interest in the potential utility of Constitutional silver introduced me to the American Silver Eagle. I have purchased new rolls and decided to take a chance with what Money Metals called "circulated culls". Of the ten I received, (3-2008, 2-2017, 3-2018 and 2-2019), Only the 2008's appeared less than brand new. If these remaining seven coins were circulated they were each carried individually in a velvet bag. I can not find a mark on them. REMARKABLE QUALITY !!!! I will be buying more from this honest broker.

    Very pleased
    I have received two groups of "tarnished" circulated Silver Eagles and so far, for my money they are awesome. For the silver content they are hard to beat. In addition I found very little to no real tarnishing. They seem to be, so far, (hope I'm not jinxing myself) just circulated. Highly recommend these coins.
