Once again, mintage records were falling at the United States Mint in 2011. The total mintage of 2011 American Silver Eagles was 40,020,000 coins. This was the fourth new mintage record in four years, marked an increase of 5.3 million coins from the previous year, and was the first time in program history that Silver Eagle mintage surpassed 40 million coins in a single year.
The price of silver continued to skyrocket in 2011. It went so high, in fact, that it set an all-time high. On April 28, 2011, the price of silver per ounce hit a record high just below $50 per ounce at $49.50 per ounce. Though it would finish the year much lower, silver saw its strongest price year ever in 2011.
On the obverse of 2011 Silver Eagles is Walking Liberty. This iconic image was created by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916 for use on the circulation half-dollar coin. It was used on the half dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse of 2011 1 oz American Silver Eagle Coins includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. This official seal includes the US national shield, the American bald eagle, and a triangular cluster of 13 stars representing the original American Colonies.
