The United States Mint first released the Silver American Eagle Coin in 1986. Since then, the American Eagle has become one of the most popular silver coins in the world. Each coin is .999 pure silver, making this one of the finest silver coins ever minted.
The obverse side of this large coin features a design based on the earlier “Walking Liberty” coin, while the reverse side features an image of a bald eagle holding a shield beneath 13 stars.
