U.S. Silver Eagle
A Popular Modern Bullion Coin with a Collectible Component
The Silver Eagle was introduced along with the Gold Eagle series in 1986. Like the gold coins, it was an instant success. The Mint brilliantly revived the old Walking Liberty Half Dollar design, making it an exceptionally beautiful bullion coin. The American Silver Eagle series is popular among bullion buyers and collectors alike. There are many varieties of Silver Eagles including the regular uncirculated coin, the proof, burnished finish, and reverse proof. Silver Eagles have been minted at Philadelphia, West Point, and San Francisco Mints. These options make the series more dynamic and appealing to collectors. While Silver Eagles may be a more expensive way to purchase bullion, the coins may be well worth your consideration. Because of their popularity as a collectible, many of the earlier Silver Eagles have appreciated dramatically in value. When you purchase Silver Eagles, you buy the silver position with a potential for additional gains as a collectible.
