About American Silver Eagle Coins
First issued in 1986, American Silver Eagle Coins are struck solely in 1 troy oz. denominations. Having the nominal face value of one dollar, American Silver Eagle Coins are assured to possess one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. The contents and weight of the American Silver Eagle are certified by the United States Mint and officially authorized by Congress. American Silver Eagle Coins have been produced at three different mints: the Philadelphia mint (carrying a “P” mintmark), the San Francisco mint (bearing an “S”), and more recently, the West Point mint (having a “W” on the reverse side of the coin).
