The American Silver Eagle Coin is the official silver bullion coin of the US. It was once approved by the 1985 Liberty Coin Act and first released by the USA Mint in 1986. Even if the Silver Eagle bullion coin lacks a mintmark, the Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, and the West Point Mint have produced it. The Silver Eagle exists only in the 1 oz. denomination and incorporates one-troy ounce of .999 pure silver. To increase durability, a trace amount of copper is included in the coin (99.93% silver, 0.07% copper). The Silver Eagle’s purity, weight, and content are guaranteed by the US Government and certified by the USA Mint. The Silver Eagle carries a face value of $1. The obverse of the coin portrays Lady Liberty approaching the daybreak with her right arm extended. In her left arm she holds laurel and oak branches, which symbolize civil and military glory. She is draped in the American Flag, which billow around her in the breeze. The word, “Liberty” boldly encircles the top of the coin and the mint year is displayed at the bottom center. The phrase, “In God We Consider” is placed toward the bottom right of the coin. The reverse of the coin, designed by American sculptor and engraver John M. Mercanti, features a majestic bald eagle with shielded chest. He proudly displays his wingspan, even as gripping an olive branch in his right talon and arrows in his left. Thirteen stars are positioned above the eagle to represent the thirteen colonies. The coin reads, “United States of The usa” at the top and, “1 Oz. Fine Silver~One Dollar” at the bottom. In his beak, the eagle holds a banner exhibiting the phrase, “E Pluribus Unum.” The Silver Eagle is 40.6 mm in diameter and 2.98 mm thick.
