Own the American Silver Eagle; Most Popular Coin in the World!

Money Metals Exchange is pleased to offer the world's most popular silver coin - the American Silver Eagle - at low prices. The US Mint has been minting these one-dollar American Silver Eagle coins, since 1986. Like our bullion rounds, each American Silver Eagle contains a minimum of one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. The weight and purity of each Silver Eagle coin is backed by the US government.

Introduced in 1986, the American Silver Eagle coin weighs in at 1 ounce and carries a 99.9% pure silver guarantee, authorized by Title II of public law 99-61 and certified by the United States Mint. The Silver Eagle has a very strong sales history, having immediately sold out when released in 1986 and at many times since. Its popularity continues, as evidenced by its 2014/2015 record breaking sales figures. In 2014 alone, an estimated 44 million coins were struck and sold, rising to approximately 47 million in 2015.

At several times in recent years, the mint had to postpone or ration sales of the coin due to high demand! Government mismanagement is part of the reason for the scarcity at times, but that is not the only reason. What makes this coin so popular?

The coin’s striking design is one reason. America has often been represented by its symbolic images - whether this be the statue of liberty or the stars and stripes on the US flag.

Who Designed the Silver Eagle?

The design is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 "Walking Liberty" half dollar, widely considered one of the most beautiful American coins ever minted. It is easily a must have for savvy US silver buyers Its design evokes feelings of ambition, courage and, most importantly, freedom, similar to those experienced by American settlers when they arrived in the 16th and 17th century.

Who Is on The Silver Eagle Coin?

Lady Liberty (obverse) - This beautifully crafted coin features a design similar to the Walking Liberty. It depicts Lady Liberty walking amongst the prominent sun's rays wearing a gown stitched with the American flag's stars and stripes. In her left arm, she carries branches of laurel and oak which embody American pride. Such an image cannot fail to resonate with Americans and instill the national pride within them -- a reminder of what the American Dream means.

Shielded Eagle (reverse) - The shielded eagle, created by John M. Mercanti, portrays the very prestige and strength of America and its families reinforcing these feelings as the eagle is symbolic of power and, as it is one of the highest flying birds in the world, divinity. One look at the image of the eagle gives us the courage and freedom to continue our personal journey. Below its shielded breast, the eagle possesses an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left.

The coin’s symbolism is capable of conjuring positive energy, encouraging us to look forward with positivity. The text on the coin reinforces the United States’ motto, ‘E Pluribus Unum’ (out of many, one). On the reverse, the Lady Liberty seems to be supported by her faith as she continues her journey towards the Westward Son, backed by the text, ‘In God We Trust.’ The coin, therefore, is worth more than just its weight in silver; it is a story and reminder of the American heritage and what America means for us as individuals.

Why Buy Silver Eagle Coins?

Silver coins are generally purchased either as part of a collection, for profit, or as financial insurance. The immense popularity of the Silver Eagle coin make it a mandatory part of any portfolio, and its value is priceless as consideration is paid to what it symbolizes. Other people buy silver bullion coins as a hedge against inflation and in today’s unknown economy, silver coins are an excellent choice of investment.

Silver bullion coins can also be held in self-directed individual retirement accounts (IRAs). Although the coins only have a face value of $1, their intrinsic value is a lot higher and dictated by the price of silver at the point of sale, along with the coin’s silver content.

Most beautiful coin

By Joseph M. on October 3rd, 2017

I have purchased different products but the silver eagle is the prettiest one to me.

Beautiful Americana! Beautiful Silver Eagles

By N. J. on June 22nd, 2017

I recently gave MMX a 5 star rating with the BBB. I wished I could have given them more stars, but 5 was the highest the scale went. Customer service, product knowledge coupled with expedient delivery and excellent pricing makes me a return customer, time and time again. Their American Silver Eagle is both stunning and beautiful. It makes me proud to be an American! Thanks, MMX - you're the best!
