The U.S. Mint has minted a one dollar silver coin since 1986 called a
"Silver Eagle". Each Silver Eagle Coin contains one troy ounce of
silver, and these coins are legal tender. Silver has historically been
the most affordable precious metal.
American Eagle Silvers are affordable as; investments,
beautiful collectibles, thoughtful gifts and memorable incentives or
rewards. Above all, as legal tender, they're the only silver bullion
coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States
Government. They're also the only silver coins allowed in an IRA.
Silver Eagles are meticulously crafted to the the United States Mint's exacting
standards. The design is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 Walking Liberty Half
Dollar Coin, considered by many to be one the most beautiful coins ever minted.
Congressionally authorized American Eagle Bullion coins provide
investors with a convenient and cost effective way to add a small
amount of physical silver to their investment
portfolios. The American Eagle Bullion program was launched in 1986
with the sale of silver bullion coins. A bullion coin is a coin
that is valued by its weight in a specific precious metal. Unlike
commemorative or numismatic coins valued by limited mintage, rarity,
condition and age, bullion coins are purchased by investors seeking a
simple and tangible means to own and invest in the gold, silver, and
platinum markets. American Eagle Bullion Coins
are not sold to the general public directly from the United States

Silver Eagles are easy to buy and sell at most coin, precious metal
and brokerage companies. Prices are usually based on the market price of
silver, plus a small premium to cover minting and distribution costs.

silver coins, with more than 90 million sold since 1986. These and
