The Silver American Eagle is, without question, among the most popular coins in the world. While it competes for attention with the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf and Silver Chinese Panda, the impressive design and high standards for quality used in production make the coin a must-have among numismatics. Now, you can purchase a 2015 1 oz. Silver American Eagle coin from Silver.com with MS70 grading from the Professional Coin Grading Service.
Each Silver American Eagle coin is struck using silver sourced from within the United States. Unlike its gold counterpart, the silver bullion program produces only a 1 oz. coin each year. The mintage level of Silver American Eagles varies from year to year because the US Mint strikes coins based upon the demand in the market for the silver bullion coin. In 2014, the US Mint produced a record 44 million Silver American Eagle coins in response to skyrocketing demand for this popular product.
The 2015 1 oz. Silver American Eagles sold today by Silver.com have MS70 grades from the PCGS. A Mint State 70 coin is one that is perfectly struck by the mint. Each of these coins ships in secure packaging that includes an Edmond Moy Label. Moy was the 38th Director of the United States Mint, and the label includes his name and signature.
On the obverse side of the Silver American Eagle is Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty image. Originating on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar in 1916, the image is reimagined on the Silver American Eagle. The reverse side of the coin features the heraldic eagle image as designed by John Mercanti in 1986. Mercanti is the chief engraver at the US Mint.
The United States Mint system consists of four primary minting facilities. Of those four, the San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint produce the Silver American Eagles for the US Mint each year.
