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

Money Metals Exchange is pleased to offer the world's most popular silver bullion coin - the American Silver Eagle - at low prices. The US Mint has been minting the American Silver Eagle 1 oz coin, since 1986. Like our bullion coins, such as the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, each American Eagle coin contains a minimum of one troy ounce of .999 pure silver. The weight and purity of each Eagle Silver coin is backed by the US government. 

Introduced in 1986, Silver American Eagle coins weighs in at one ounce of silver (99.9% pure silver guarantee), authorized by Title II of public law 99-61 and certified by the United States Mint. US Mint Silver Eagles have 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.

With its beautiful design, US Mint Silver Eagles are a top seller on Money MetalsWe offer Eagle bullion coins, individually or as a Proof Eagle set. The proof sets are currently availble in gold. We also offer Silver Eagle Proof coins. 

Who Is on The Silver Eagle Coin?

Lady Liberty (obverse) - This beautifully crafted Silver Eagle 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 obverse, the Lady Liberty seems to be supported by her faith as she continues her journey towards the Westward Sun, 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 Eagles?

Money Metals believe 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. And the fact that the price of silver is much lower compared to gold, it makes a great investment for those new to the game. You can buy these coins in large quantities and easily store them in your home using monster boxes, or coin tubes. The great silver prices make the American Eagle silver dollar a great piece for any collection.

First Time Buyer

By Marshall W. on October 4th, 2019

I recently purchased a 2019 Silver Eagle from MMX. I was skeptical at first. But, after the fast insured delivery and the quality of the coin, I will be a steady customer. Investing in precious metals is a smart way to go.

Fan of Silver Eagles

By John M. on August 28th, 2019

I compared prices from other dealers and Money Metals had the best price. The purchase was easy to follow and came earlier than there original estimate since I sent my payment the next day. My items were packed nice and tight and in a nondescript package. I would use them in the future when I am ready to do more purchases.

Fully Credible

By Michael A. on August 26th, 2019

I have been dealing with MMX exclusively since I started investing seriously. They have always delivered what I ordered and the product is top of the line. When I had to speak with a representative by phone she was friendly, informative and helpful. Always a pleasure dealing with MMX and will continue to do so.

First purchase

By Joe M. on August 13th, 2019

Very smooth transaction and fast delivery. I will be a repeat customer!

Beautiful and shiny, recent mint coins.

By Steve B. on August 8th, 2019

I love the American Silver Eagle design, along with a few others ( Maple Leafs, kangaroos, krugerrands, and Austrian philharmonic's). I am building my stack, as I can afford to add to it. I will be back to MMX.
