The Silver Eagle is a genuine legal tender silver bullion coin struck by the United States Mint. It has been made each year since 1986 in a limited edition and is now the world’s most popular silver bullion coin.
The Silver Eagle is minted in one ounce of .9993 pure silver, so it is the largest, heaviest, and purest silver coin in U.S. history. It is a legal tender United States coin with a nominal face value of One Dollar, although its silver value and collector value far exceed its face value. The roll contains over one pound (20 ounces) of pure silver.
The obverse of the 2009 Silver Eagle Dollar features Adolph A. Weinman’s famous “Walking Liberty” design that first appeared on U.S. Silver Half Dollars from 1916-1947. This is one of the most beautiful coin designs of all time, showing Lady Liberty striding forwards in a flowing gown and wrapped by the American flag. The reverse depicts a heraldic eagle, together with the U.S. Government’s guarantee that the coin contains “1 Oz. Fine Silver” and the face value of “One Dollar.”
The roll of 20 coins is delivered in a protective case and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
