American Silver Eagles
American Silver Eagles are the official silver bullion coin of the United States. The American Silver Eagle was authorized by the Liberty Coin Act of 1985 and first released in 1986 as the official silver bullion coin of the United States.
This coin consists only of a 1 Troy oz silver coin with .999 purity and a face value of $1 (USD) backed by the federal government. United States Mint uses images of Lady Liberty and the American bald eagle on the obverse and reverse sides of the coins, respectively. These silver bullion coins have become a favorite among collectors and investors alike.
New 2021 American Silver Eagle Design – Reverse Changes
2021 marks the 35th anniversary of the series, the American Eagle silver dollar series will switch its design. The new design from the United States Mint is created by Emily Damstra. It represents a leaping Bald eagle to reflect the abundance of American wildlife and serves as a tribute to contemporary America. The bald eagle is the national bird of the United States, which appears on all its official seals.
The new design on the reverse of the American Silver Eagle depicts a larger, more detailed bald eagle and a branch of an oak tree with an open nest. The inscriptions remain the same as previous American Silver Eagles and are arranged in the same manner. Just above the weight and metal content is an inscription of “E Pluribus Unum” which translates from Latin into “Out of many, One.”
