Buying Pre-2000 American Silver Eagle Coins

American Silver Eagles dated pre-2000 in choice Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) grade are increasingly popular among coin collectors and investors seeking quality silver coins for their portfolios. Pre-2000 Silver Eagles combine all of the advantages of silver bullion plus additional premiums for scarcity, especially among years with smaller mintages.

Containing a full ounce of .999 fine silver and backed by the U.S. government for weight and metal content, Silver Eagles are among the safest and most convenient ways to invest in silver bullion.

Silver Eagles have been issued since 1986 as legal tender by the U.S. Mints in Philadelphia and San Francisco. They are only available in the 1 oz size with a face value of $1.00. The obverse depicts the memorable Walking Liberty design by Adolph A. Weinman, adapted from the popular U.S. quarters and half dollars. The reverse features the Heraldic Eagle design by John Mercanti.

Just like American Gold Eagles, Silver Eagles are eligible for inclusion in Individual Retirement Accounts.
