The first Silver American Eagle coins were struck and released in 1986. Silver American Eagle coins are only available in a one troy ounce weight, and the initial introduction included a bullion version and proof version of the coin. Bullion coins bear no mint marks, while proof coins bear varying mint marks dependent upon the year of issue.
