2011 American Silver Eagles

The American Silver Eagle combines a classic design with one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. This combination has made the coin one of the most popular annual offerings of the United States Mint.

The obverse design is taken from Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty Half Dollar, issued for circulation from 1916 to 1947. Liberty’s full figure is depicted striding towards a rising sun, while she holds a bouquet of olive branches and has an American flag draped across her shoulders. The reverse was created specifically for the series and features a heraldic eagle designed by John Mercanti.

The 2011 Silver Eagles will represent the latest year of the series, which began in 1986. The bullion coins are distributed through the US Mint’s network of authorized purchasers. They buy the coins in bulk quantities of at least 25,000 ounces based on the market price of silver plus a mark up. The coins are then resold to other dealers and the public.

The first opportunity for the authorized purchasers to order 2011 dated Silver Eagle bullion coins was January 3, 2011. Once order fulfillment begins from the US Mint the coins will make their way into the hands of collectors, continuing the tradition for this beautiful series.
