Silver American Eagle coins are the official silver bullion coins of the federal government. Each year, the obverse and reverse images used on the coins are the same. The iconic images used include depictions of the Statue of Liberty and the bald eagle. All coins in the program are struck using silver sourced from within the US and available only in a 1 oz. weight.
Each of the burnished coins available through this Silver.com listing have perfect grades from the PCGS. A coin with a perfect grade is characterized by its full, original luster, and the complete lack of blemishes, flaws, and other detracting marks on the surface.
On the obverse side of Silver American Eagle coins is the image of Walking Liberty, as created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. The reverse of each coin features the image of the heraldic eagle designed in 1986 by US Mint chief engraver John Mercanti.
The United States Mint uses a variation on the proof coining process to strike burnished coins. Individual burnished blanks are hand loaded into the coining press, and struck multiple times by a standard die cast to create the unique appearance and finish of these burnished coins.
