The records continued to fall for the American Silver Eagle coin program in the 2010s, and 2014 marked another record-setting year for the United States Mint’s flagship program. Between 2008 and 2011, the American Silver Eagle coin broke mintage records in four consecutive years. After two years of level sales figures, the 2014 American Silver Eagle coin brought a surge in demand and again broke the US Mint’s sales record. Right now, the 2014 American Silver Eagle coin is available from JM Bullion.

The Great Recession’s impact on precious metal prices and demand pushed American Silver Eagle coin sales to unprecedented levels following 2008. The mint’s popular silver eagles saw record-breaking sales in four consecutive years from 2008 to 2011. Even the off years of 2012 and 2013 featured level sales around 34.3 million annually.
After those two flat years, the Silver Eagle surged again to break the previous record of 40.02 million from 2011. The 2014 American Silver Eagle was powered largely by the demand for and popularity of the bullion version of the coin. The bullion American Silver Eagle coin in 2014 posted a sales record of 44 million, not to mention the production of the additional proof and burnished specimens.
Record-low prices in silver during 2014 led to a surge in demand for the coins this year. The bulllion and burnished versions of the coin actually sold out before the end of the calendar year.
On the obverse of the coin, Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty design is featured. This design originally featured on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947. The reverse of the coin bears the heraldic eagle of the United States, and was refined by Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti.
