First released in 1986, the American Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin is regarded as one of the finest American coins ever issued. This coin was released by the United States Mint as the official bullion coin of the United States of America after the approval of the Liberty Coin Act on July 9, 1985.
As gorgeous as the coin, the best part about it is that the coin is comprised of silver. Silver is quickly becoming one of the most valuable metals in the world and continues to grow in worth as time goes on. Each American Eagle 1 oz silver coin has a troy ounce of .999 pure silver in each one and tends to come in incredible shape. These coins are rather common and can be bought in rather significant quantities, making them great for investors and completion-oriented coin collectors.

In addition to its beauty and symbolism, there are many other factors that contribute to the 1 oz American Eagle Silver Coin’s popularity including its affordable price, its availability, its large production rate, and its ability to maintain its value over time. These factors make the American Eagle one dollar pieces easily worth many more dollars than commemorative coins. Another reason that the American Eagle is such a popular coin is that US Mint sells a limited number of these coins in order to raise funds for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act(ARRA).
