The American silver eagle is the official silver bullion coin of the United States. It was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. It is struck in the one-troy ounce size which has a nominal face value of one dollar and is guaranteed to contain one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver. Its content, weight, and purity are certified by the United States Mint.
The design on the coin's obverse was taken from the "Walking Liberty" design by Adolph A. Weinman and is inscribed with the year of minting. The reverse portrays a heraldic eagle behind a shield and thirteen five-pointed stars along with the inscribed phrases "United States of America" and "1 OZ. FINE SILVER ~ ONE DOLLAR". The definition of "FINE SILVER" is 99.9% silver purity and the "ONE DOLLAR" denotes legal tender.
