American Silver Eagle coins were introduced in 1986 by the United States Mint as the official silver bullion coin of the nation. Today they are the hottest selling coins, with 44 million sold in 2014 and 47 million sold in 2015. Despite that, availability is not a given for all investors or collectors because of the demand globally for these coins.
On the obverse of all 5 oz SilverTowne US Eagle Replica Rounds is the image of Walking Liberty. This appears on the obverse of all American Silver Eagle coins, and was created in 1916 by Adolph A. Weinman.
Weinmans creation of Walking Liberty depicts Liberty walking toward the setting sun with an American flag draped over her shoulders. It is meant to indicate the nations constant drive toward a brighter future, and it originally appeared on the obverse of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from 1916 to 1947.
The reverse of the 5 oz SilverTowne US Eagle Replica Round includes the heraldic eagle of the United States. Used on American coins since 1794, it has been revived and modernized at various points in American history. This particular version comes from US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti (1986-2010), and features the inclusion of 13 five-pointed stars above the eagle as a nod to the original American colonies.
These 5 oz SilverTowne US Eagle Replica Rounds make it possible for any investor or collection who cannot get their hands on the American Silver Eagle to own its beautiful design and .999 pure silver content in an affordable round.
One of Americas largest private minting facilities, SilverTowne was founded in rural Indiana in 1949. Originally a small coin shop, today it is a full-service mint with its own product lineups as well as silver and gold coins for sale as an authorized dealer.
