First minted in 1986, the Silver Eagle has rapidly become the most popular bullion coin in the world. Featuring the compelling "Walking Liberty" design (originally created by Adolph Weinman for the 1916 U.S. Half Dollar) the reverse bears the heraldic eagle and shield of the Great Seal of the United States. Prized the world over for its universal appeal and assurance of quality, the American Silver Eagle is destined to become a classic. Minted in one Troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver, the content of each Silver Eagle coin is guaranteed by the U.S. Government. Additionally, your Silver Eagle will come mounted in a plush-lined, museum-quality leatherette presentation box.

About silver: For thousands of years, silver has been used as a form of currency. Silver was the preferred unit of exchange in nearly every early culture worldwide. Today's paper money derives its purchasing power only through confidence in a nation's ability to maintain a "prudent fiscal policy." In turbulent times, such as those we are experiencing in the world today, diversifying your savings/investment strategy by adding silver may be a smart move. Indeed, many experts suggest that 10% to 15% of portfolio assets be in precious metals. Learn more about adding silver to your portfolio here.
