About American Eagle Silver Coins

Struck from 99.9% silver, the American Eagle silver coin reflects the strength and stability of the United States, and is one of the most popular white-metal assets in the world. Embossed with a meticulous design and manufactured to high-quality standards, American Eagle silver coins are an asset that should not be missing from any retirement plan.

History of American Eagle Silver Coins

American silver coins were first introduced in the fiscal year 1986 after the Government’s attempt to sell stockpiled silver resulted in a loss for taxpayers. The plan for the stockpiled silver was to balance the budget, but the US Federal Reserve was selling silver for undervalued prices.

To rectify the error, the Senate proposed that coins would be worth more if they were made and sold as silver bullion coins. The US Mint was given sole responsibility to manufacture the American Silver Eagle to precise specifications, security measures and design.

The first Silver American Eagle coin was struck in San Francisco on October 29, 1986 in a ceremony attended by then Secretary of the Treasury, James A. Baker III. In 1999, two other refineries, Philadelphia and West Point were invited to increase the production of American Silver Eagle coins in order to cope with the high demand.

Why buy American Eagle Silver Coins?

Investors typically buy silver for three reasons; as an investment to diversify their retirement portfolio, to hedge against paper-based assets in the inevitable event of an economic breakdown, or survival purposes when banks default and have no money to issue to account holders.

The current economic outlook is uncertain. With countries all over the world mounting up trillions in debt, it’s only a matter of time before the credit ceiling collapses and banks fall into insolvency. Buying silver coins prepares you for a repeat of the banking crises we have already witnessed this millennium in Argentina, Paraguay and Cyprus.

The American Eagle Silver coins are meticulously manufactured using advanced minting techniques that are impossible to counterfeit without using sophisticated technologies. Made with .999 fineness and bearing the irrepressible design of the walking Liberty, American Eagle silver coins are among the best-selling precious metals in their class.

Silver also has a history as a reliable investment tool. During a downturn in the economy, silver prices go up and hedge against paper-based assets which generally lose value during an economic crisis. Silver coins therefore represent a sensible investment that gives investors purchasing power after retirement.

Design of American Eagle Silver Coins

The design of the American Eagle silver coins is rich in symbolism and honours the design of Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty that originally featured on Half Dollar coins between 1916 and 1947. The Walking Liberty is regarded as one of the most cherished designs in American history.

On the reverse side is the famous American Eagle that features on dollar bills and is the very symbol that represents the nation’s pride, freedom and patriotism. American Silver Eagle Coins also bear the price of one dollar.

However, it should be noted that the denomination featured in the reverse side of silver coins does not reflect the true value in the current economic climate – American Eagle Silver coins are worth much more. The value is calculated in accordance with silver spot prices.

American Silver Eagle Coins: IRA Investment

American Eagle Silver coins are available for purchase in proof and bullion editions and are minted in a variety of weights; one ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and one-tenth. Silver coins are manufactured in a variety of weights to make these highly sought after coins available to investors off all budgets.

Furthermore, American Silver Eagle coins are crafted to high-quality specifications that cannot be replicated. Subsequently, the security of these coins is guaranteed by the US Government thereby making them an ideal investment tool that have the potential to increase spending power when added to Silver IRAs.
