Silver is without a doubt one of the most popular precious metals in the world. There are literally thousands of different types of silver coins which have been minted over the years. But United States mintage is probably is one of the most primary worldwide. United State Silver Coins have fueled the U.S. economy for decades. Silver was the main precious metal used for manufacturing American coins between 1796 and 1965. However, during that period, the price of silver was regularly increasing and the United States Mint was forced to adopt an alloy of copper-nickel instead of silver for most of the American silver coins produced since 1965. Silver coins provide conductibility because of their design, scarcity, and demand.
Nowadays, investors and collectors can choose between a variety of silver coins sizes and conditions. They can diversify their portfolio with silver bullion coins, like the American Eagle or America the Beautiful Silver coin series, US Commemorative coins or the junk silver coins, like 90% and 40% silver half dollars, quarters and dimes.
American Silver Eagle:
In 1986, the US Government decided to mint a special silver coin: the American Silver Eagle. Each American Silver Eagle is available in three versions: proof, uncirculated and certified. The US Mint currently produces over 40 million one-dollar American Silver Eagles of 1 oz pure silver content during each mintage year. These coins carry a unique design of the Walking Liberty on the obverse and the heraldic eagle on the reverse. American Silver Eagles are considered an exquisite investment option and a great hedge against inflation.
America the Beautiful:
Another popular US Silver coin design is the America The Beautiful coin, which depicts one of the amazing American National Parks and sites. Each year these exceptional US silver coins are released featuring a new design. The American Mint plans to issue this series until at least the year 2021, producing a total of 56 quarter dollars.
