About Proof Silver American Eagle Coins
Proof Silver American Eagle Coins are one of the few collectible coins eligible for holding in an Individual Retirement Account. First released by the U.S. Mint in 1986, they are available only in one-ounce denominations and struck in limited numbers. The 1-oz. Proof Silver American Eagle Coin contains 99.9% pure silver mined only within the United States. Proof coins undergo a specialized minting process that results in an especially lustrous, detailed, mirror-like finish.
Proof coins are bought and sold with much higher premiums than regular bullion coins because they carry both collectible and bullion coin value. Currently Proof American Eagle Coins are the only proof products allowed by the IRS to be put in self-directed IRAs.
