General Description: American Silver Eagles
The American Silver Eagle is a one-ounce .999 silver coin denominated at one dollar. It is the official silver bullion coin of the USA and as such is guaranteed by US Law to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.

The coin has been produced at the Philadelphia, San Francisco and West Point Mints. Although primarily a bullion coin, the coin is popular with collectors and is also available in Proof and Uncirculated finishes.

The Obverse design is based on the Walking Liberty Half-Dollar (1916-1947) by Adolph A. Weinman. The Reverse shows a heraldic eagle by John Mercanti, replaced in late 2021 by a bald eagle landing on a branch by Emily Damstra.
