The American Silver Eagle Coin is the official silver bullion coin of the United States. It was approved by the 1985 Liberty Coin Act and first released by the United States Mint in 1986. Although the Silver Eagle bullion coin lacks a mintmark, it has been produced by the Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, and the West Point Mint. The Silver Eagle exists exclusively in the 1 oz. denomination and contains one-troy ounce of .999 pure silver. To increase durability, a trace amount of copper is included in the coin (99.93% silver, 0.07% copper). The Silver Eagle's purity, weight, and content are guaranteed by the United States Government and certified by the United States Mint. The Silver Eagle carries a face value of $1. It is legal tender for all public and private debts at its face value. The American Silver Eagle is not available for public purchase directly from the United States Mint, but is sold in bulk to authorized distributors, then to secondary retailers and the public.
A silver U.S. Franklin half dollar from 1963. These coins are in Mint State Brilliant Uncirculated condition, with no wear and strong luster. The obverse side of the coin features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, notable eccentric and Founding Father. The reverse side of the coin features the Liberty Bell. The Franklin half dollar series was the successor of the Walking Liberty half dollar series and the predecessor of the Kennedy half dollar series. The coin was the brainchild of U.S. Mint director Nellie Ross, an admirer of Franklin, who felt a replacement was needed for the "outdated" Walking Liberty design (first minted in 1916). After the first draft of the Franklin half design was completed, the Mint realized that a law from 1873 dictated that all coins of higher value than a dime must feature an eagle within their design. Rather than abandoning the Liberty Bell reverse, the Mint decided to insert a small eagle to the right of the bell. As some historians noted, Franklin himself would have disapproved of the coin, as he opposed featuring portraits of men on the first American coins and instead favored coin designs featuring thought-inspiring proverbs. Each coin measures 30.6mm in diameter, weighs 12.5g, and is made of .900 fine silver
A silver U.S. Walking Liberty half dollar, dated between 1940-1945. These coins are in About Uncirculated condition or better, with light wear and moderate mint luster. In the designer's own words, the obverse features "a full-length figure of Lady Liberty, wearing a gown of the American Flag, the folds of the Stars and Stripes flapping in the breeze, progressing in full stride toward the dawn of a new day, carrying branches of laurel and oak, symbolic of civil and military glory. The hand of the figure is outstretched in bestowal of the spirit of liberty. The reverse of the half dollar shows an eagle perched high upon a mountain crag, his wings unfolded, fearless in spirit and conscious of his power. Springing from a rift in the rock is a sapling of mountain pine, symbolic of America." The Walking Liberty half dollar series was one of several new coin designs introduced in the first decades of the 20th century, the ultimate result of Teddy Roosevelt's effortrs to beautify the nation's coinage. The Walking Liberty replaced the Barber half dollar design, which had been used since 1892 and was not considered particularly attractive or notable. While the half dollar itself was not a widely used coin in comparison to smaller denominations, the Walking Liberty design quickly gained widespread acclaim and is now recognized as one of the most beautiful designs ever used on U.S. coinage. While the series ended in 1947, the U.S. Mint eventually re-purposed the Walking Liberty design for the American Eagle series of gold bullion coins. Each Walking Liberty half dollar measures 30.6mm in diameter, weighs 12.5g, and is made of .900 fine silver.
