The American Silver Eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the US, and is one of the best-selling silver coin in the world today. Silver Eagle is a must-have for any investor or collector. Silver Eagles come in three versions each year (one bullion investment-grade coin & two collectible options in the proof and burnished coins).
The very first American Silver Eagle was struck in October 1986 by James A. Baker III. A Chicago Sun-Times article says that as Baker went to press the button, he turned to the invited audience and said, “I don’t need a pick and shovel to start the San Francisco Silver Rush of 1986.”
