The American Silver Eagle coin is the single hottest seller in the precious metals marketplace every year. More than 90 million coins have been sold between 2014 and 2015 alone, with record-breaking sales in six of the last eight years. The American Silver Eagle coin is the official silver bullion coin of the US.
Although the imagery used on the US Silver Eagle appears on the nation’s official silver bullion collection, it only ever featured on one other coin: the Walking Liberty Half Dollar. While many other popular historical US coin designs have been replicated on silver rounds, the Walking Liberty design has only caught on with a few other mints. Now, SilverTowne is getting in on the act.
These 5 oz SilverTowne Silver US Eagle Replica Rounds make it possible for any investor or collection who cannot get their hands on the American Silver Eagle to own its beautiful design and .999 pure silver content in an affordable round.
On the obverse of all 5 oz SilverTowne Silver US Eagle Replica Rounds is the image of Walking Liberty. This appears on the obverse of all American Silver Eagle coins, and was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman.
The reverse of the 5 oz SilverTowne Silver US Eagle Replica Round includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. Used on American coins since 1794, it has been revived and modernized at various points in American history. This particular version comes from US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti (1986-2010), and features the inclusion of 13 five-pointed stars above the eagle as a nod to the original American colonies.
One of America’s largest private minting facilities, SilverTowne was founded in rural Indiana in 1949. Originally a small coin shop, today it is a full-service mint with its own product lineups as well as silver and gold coins for sale as an authorized dealer.
