The Silver American Eagle coin debuted from the United States Mint in 1986. This coveted series marked its 25th anniversary in 2011 amidst intense demand for silver. At this time, the West Point Mint was producing all bullion versions of the coin, but help was on the way in the form of supplemental coining at the original mint to issue the coins: the San Francisco Mint. Now, 2011-S Silver American Eagle Coins are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com with NGC certification.

Silver American Eagle coins were initially produced at the San Francisco Mint both the bullion and proof versions. The bullion coins remained at the San Francisco Mint for a much longer period of time, with production shifting to the Philadelphia Mint for 1999 and 2000, and then to its current home at the West Point Mint from 2001 onward.
With crushing demand for silver bullion, and the Silver Eagle in particular during the Great Recession, the US Mint reenlisted the San Francisco Mint as a supplemental minting facility for its Silver Eagle bullion coins. Though the bullion coins in this listing do not bear mint marks, these 2011 specimens originated at the San Francisco Mint as it began coining Silver Eagles for the first time since 1998.
On the obverse of each 2011-S Silver American Eagle Coin is the historic image of Walking Liberty. This design from Adolph A. Weinman depicts Liberty in left-profile relief as she marches toward the sun on the horizon.
The reverse side of 2011 Silver American Eagle Coins features the heraldic eagle of the United States. This iconic national seal was modernized in 1986 for the Silver Eagle series by John Mercanti and includes the American bald eagle behind the national heraldic shield.
