American Silver Eagle coins were introduced in 1986 following passage of the Liberty Coin Act of 1985 by the US Congress. All Silver Eagle coins are struck using silver sourced from within the United States. The original silver stores used in production came from the Defense National Stockpile, with a 2002 extension granted by Congress allowing the Treasury Department and US Mint to purchase silver on the open market. Silver Eagle coins feature .999 fine silver and carry a face value of $1.
All of the American Silver Eagle coins available in this product listing are in cull or damaged condition. Cull coins are difficult to pin down with a single description. Generally speaking, coins graded as fair or poor are considered cull. Conditions contributing to a coin being labeled cull include, but are not limited to the presence of holes, bends, dark toning, pitting, corrosion, or major blemishes and detracting marks.
Adolph A. Weinmans 1916 Walking Liberty image was revived for use on the American Silver Eagle coin, and is featured on the obverse side of the coin. In the image, Lady Liberty is shown walking toward the setting sun with the American flag draped over her shoulders. The reverse side of the coin bears the heraldic eagle as designed by John Mercanti, a US Mint chief engraver.
The United States Mint, founded in 1792, is one of the oldest facilities in the Western Hemisphere. The San Francisco Mint, Philadelphia Mint, and West Point Mint all contribute to production of Silver Eagle coins. The American Silver Eagle you receive when purchasing from this listing will be determined by our available stock at the time of purchase, and will consist of random mint years and damaged conditions.
