The Silver Eagle is often considered one of the most beautiful coins ever minted. With an eagle and shield displaying American strength and pride, the Silver Eagle design is based on A.A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty.” The Silver Eagle Bullion Coin was first released from the U.S. Mint in 1986. The Silver Eagle is available in 1 ounce, .999 fine, single coins. The Silver Eagle is also available in Monster Boxes of 500 coins that are sealed by the U.S. Mint. You can also purchase a pallet of Monster Boxes totaling 25,000 ounces of silver.
