The reverse side of the silver coin portrays an American Bald Eagle, behind an American shield.

The American eagle is grasping an olive branch with its right talon and arrows in its left talon, mimicking the Great Seal of the United States.

The banner that the eagle is holding in its beak says "E PLURIBUS UNUM," which is Latin for "Out of many, one."

Above the eagle is Thirteen, Five pointed stars, representing the original Thirteen Colonies.

The words, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" are inscribed across the top of the inside perimeter of the silver coin.

The silver bullion coin's Weight of "1 OZ.," Purity and Face Value "FINE SILVER~ONE DOLLAR" are inscribed along the bottom of the coin.

John Mercanti's initials are located directly under the left talon of the eagle holding the arrows.

Note: American Eagle bullion coins do not have a Mint Mark; only the Collector's Proof and Collector's Un-Circulated Versions of the Silver American Eagles have a mint mark, on the reverse side.

Where & How
American Silver Eagle Bullion Coins
are Made




The West Point Mint in New York is the primary location for all bullion coin production.

However, when the West Point Mint cannot meet production demands American Silver Eagles are produced at the San Francisco Mint and Philadelphia Mint.

The bulk of production at these two Mints usually happens during the transition time to a new calendar year.

At the end and beginning of each year, the three facilities cooperate to ensure a sizeable inventory is available for purchase.

January is often one of the busiest months of the year for the sales of American Eagle Bullion Coins.

CoinWorld.com recently found out about the fact that the US Mint were incorporating the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints to meet demand and wanted to learn more information.

At their first request they were denied access to the information, but after using the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the information, they found out some very interesting information in the article below:

Coin World - Millions of American Eagle silver bullion coins struck at San Francisco, Philadelphia Mints 




Below is a Video from the US Mint explaining the process of Minting the American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin.
