The Silver American Eagle like the Gold version has a design borrowed from an older U.S. mint coin. The image of “Walking Liberty”, located on the front of the Silver Eagle, first debuted in 1916 on the silver half dollar coin designed by Adolph Weinman. Proof Silver Eagles maintain a unique advantage over most other silver coins – their content, weight, and purity are guaranteed by the United States government and are printed on the modern mint. Proof coins are specifically struck for collectors. Each proof coin comes in a United States government-issued box with a certificate of authenticity and is encapsulated in a hard plastic container to preserve its condition for years to come. Graded versions of the coins are not approved for IRA’s. Merit is proud to offer both graded and ungraded versions of the coin.
