From the US Mint you have the official silver bullion coins known as American Silver Eagles. These coins have been a popular choice ever since their first minting in 1986. These coins are 99.9% silver, and depict some of America’s most iconic imagery in the proud bald eagle, the U.S. flag, and Lady Liberty. The coins have been minted at the West Point Mint, as well as the Philadelphia and San Francisco mints, and come in bullion, proof and uncirculated versions. There is plenty of variety to choose from! There have also been a number of special issue versions of the coins, such as reverse proof versions and burnished finish versions.
If you prefer to collect commemorative American coins, then look at the America the Beautiful silver bullion series or the Boy Scouts of America commemorative coins. The America the Beautiful coins come in a five-ounce size and will be issued until 2021 with five reverse designs being issued every year. All of these coins depict a scene of beauty from one of America’s national parks or sites. The Boy Scouts of America coin was issued in celebration of the group’s centennial anniversary in 2010. Besides collecting for yourself, these coins make the perfect presents for any young responsible scouts that you know.
If you are looking to get your hands on the newest of the new silver commemorative coins, then keep an eye out on March 5, 2012 for the brand new Star-Spangled Banner silver commemorative coins. This silver coin commemorates the U.S. National Anthem, which was written during a very tumultuous time in American history. This rough time ended in proud victory for America. Why not feel a little bit of that good old American pride, by owning one of these commemorative coins?
