The most popular coin weight in the world is the 1 oz silver coin. Every silver bullion coin program issued annually by mints around the globe produces a 1 oz silver bullion variant, whether other weight options are available or not. For example, the Silver American Eagle is available only as a 1 oz silver coin, but the Silver Mexican Libertad has a total of seven weights for investors to purchase.

1 oz silver coins are available in almost every silver series you can invest in. The first of these coins available on an annual basis was the Silver Mexican Libertad that debuted in 1982. This was followed by the release of the Silver American Eagle in 1986, the Silver Canadian Maple Leaf in 1988, the Silver Chinese Panda in 1989, the Silver Australian Kookaburra in 1990, and the Silver British Britannia in 1997.
These coins have their own distinctive designs and, in some cases, different purity levels. Silver American Eagles, Silver Mexican Libertads, and Silver Chinese Pandas have always had .999 fine silver content. The Silver Canadian Maple Leaf was the first-ever .9999 fine silver coin. The Silver Kookaburra, and later Silver Koala, were available originally with .999 fine silver and have .9999 fine silver as of 2018.
On the obverse side of these coins, you will find varying design elements. For example, 1 oz Silver Coins from the Silver Australian Kookaburra, Koala, and Kangaroo collections feature varying images of Queen Elizabeth II. These coins have either the Ian Rank-Broadley design used from 1999 to 2017 or the Jody Clark design used from 2018 onward.
The reverse imagery of these coins has differing designs as well. The Silver American Eagle boasts a design of the heraldic eagle of the United States of America. The Silver British Britannia bears the image of Britannia defending the British Isles on its reverse face.
These 1 oz Silver Coins are available from random years and varied mints. The one connecting feature of all the coins is the presence of a 24-karat gold layer known as a gilded finish. This creates a contrast between the design and the background field. The gilded layer will feature on the obverse or reverse depending on the coin program. For example, all Canadian and Australian coins with Queen Elizabeth II’s effigy will feature the gilded layer on the reverse, not on the obverse where the Queen is depicted. Please note all coins are chosen at random and we make no guarantees on dates, designs, or mint of origin.
