Each of the 1986 1 oz Silver American Eagle coins contain 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and hold a legal tender value of $1 USD. The 1986 1 oz. Silver American Eagle was the very first coin in this series, and a total of 6,839,783 coins were minted that year. These Silver American Eagles are available today in uncirculated condition.

With the federal government facing increasing budget deficits in the 1970s and early 1980s, the administration of President Ronald Reagan pushed for the production of a brand new silver bullion coin. The very first of these coins was the 1986 1 oz. Silver American Eagle coin. It featured two of the most iconic American images around: Lady Liberty and the bald eagle. 1986 was the first year of production, and since then none of the features of this brilliant coin have changed.

The Reagan Administration pushed for legislation to approve the sale of silver bullion coins to help raise money to balance the federal budget. This legislation was first crafted in 1981, but it was not approved until 1985. The initiative paved the way for silver stores to be removed from the Defense National Stockpile and used to mint what would become the official silver bullion coin of the United States.

The 1986 1 oz. Silver American Eagle coins were the first to be produced, with the very first coin struck on October 29, 1986 at the San Francisco Mint. Since then, both the Philadelphia Mint and West Point Mint have contributed to the production of bullion and proof Silver American Eagles.

The obverse and reverse sides of the Silver American Eagles feature the same images they did nearly 30 years ago when the 1986 1 oz. Silver American Eagle was first produced. On the coin’s obverse, Adolph A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty” is featured. Weinman crafted the image in 1916 for use on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar, a coin produced between 1916 and 1947. On the coin’s reverse, John Mercanti’s heraldic bald eagle is featured. The eagle is set behind a shield, with an olive branch in its right talon and arrows in its left. Above its head, 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies. Mercanti is the chief designer at the US Mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
