The American Silver Eagle is the only silver bullion coin in the world whose purity is guaranteed by the government of the United States. It stands at the summit of a two hundred year history of American silver coinage. The American Silver Eagle program was authorized by Congress in late 1985 with the first coins appearing the following summer. Since their introduction, over seventy million American Silver Eagles have been sold to collectors and investors around the world. As stipulated by law, American Silver Eagles are composed of silver mined exclusively in the United States with a purity of .999, making them the purest silver bullion coins ever minted and offered to the public by the United States. All American Silver Eagles are struck in the one troy ounce denomination with a stated face value of $1. They are substantial coins, measuring 40.6mm in diameter and 2.98mm thick, and have a heft befitting their quality.
The American Silver Eagle is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin in production today. It takes its design directly from one of the most popular and iconic coins in U.S. history, Adolph A. Weinman’s Walking Liberty half-dollar of 1916-1947. The reverse of the coin features a new design created expressly for the American Silver Eagle by John Mercanti, the chief engraver at the U.S. Mint. It depicts a proud heraldic eagle placed directly beneath thirteen stars representing the original thirteen colonies. By combining the classic with the modern, the American Silver Eagle coins are able to capture the unique spirit of our country: proud of our history while moving toward our future with purpose.

- another satisfied customerandrewon 1/27/12
Overalli placed my first order with provident on 1/6 using personal check. received the order today. nice! it was worth the wait.
- Everything went as statedSBon 1/27/12
OverallI used the cash discount and paid by personal check. The company honored the locked-in price per their rules of postmark within one day, even though the metals priced had increased by the time they got the check. Provident held the shipment for several days waiting for the funds to clear. Once they cleared, I received notice of shipment and the metals arrived two or three days later. The whole process from order to receipt was about 14 days.
Again, Provident followed through on their end of the deal exactly as they said they would and communicated at each step. They were a good company to do business with.
- Very good company to deal with.Thomason 12/29/11

- GREAT LOOKING COINS! 110% SATISFIED!Dennison 10/31/11
OverallJust received my tube of eagles. Shipping was quicker than expected, about 5 days after placing order. I still get very excited opening my package even though I already know what's in it. If you don't have silver yet, especially these magnificent eagles, u better get it now before prices goes ballistic. I did a lot of research and found Provident has the lowest premium compare to bigger online dealers like @pm3x. Thanks Provident, very happy customer here and will continue to buy more from you guys!
- Immaculate Coin Condition & Incredible Service!Copperhead Kingon 10/24/11
OverallThe 2011 ASE that I received was in perfect condition! As always, the customer service was outstanding! The shipment packaging was perfect and the speed of delivery and cost for shipping was great! I always do business with ProvidentMetals first. You cannot go wrong with Provident Metals. They're the best bullion dealer in my honest opinion!
- Absolutely top notch!Rod VMon 10/19/11
OverallProvident Metals' service is absolutely excellent, delivery is prompt and discrete, customer service responses are quick and courteous, and prices are better than anywhere else I've looked. They make buying gold and silver so easy and painless that I have recommended them to dozens of friends and thousands of readers and will continue to do so. Thank you Provident Metals!
- Great product, great price, awesome service!Robon 10/7/11
OverallAfter extensive research, I have found no better online source for precious metals. The prices can't be beat (as far as I have seen so far), the customer service is OUTSTANDING, and the shipping is fast. I love the cash discount option, and the ability to lock in your price 24/7/365 is awesome!
I bought 20 of these as a first time bullion purchase along with some other 1 ozt rounds and I couldn't be more impressed. I ordered on a Saturday, and even though the purchase order stated "Delayed", I received my order on Thursday. Talk about impressive! That "Delayed" delivery was faster than normal shipping times stated on most of the other sites I researched.
I will definitely be buying from Provident again!
- BEST ONLINE DEALER!Jasonon 10/5/11
OverallThis is my third time purchasing silver and they always impress me with their service. I like how you can lock in your price online 24/7, send them a check, 10 days later u get your silver in the mail. Shipping is reasonable unlike some dealer that charges outrageous prices. Some dealer requires you to wire transfer within 24 hours after locking price which i don't have time to go the bank just to wire them money. I've look at other online dealers but provident have lower premiums. If you're looking for a true, honest dealer, look no further. Will be coming back for more, i love these silver eagles...they are a piece of art. Thanks provident.
- excellentPenguinon 10/5/11
OverallMy first order here(2 tubes of 20 ASE's);arrived promptly,securely and discreetly packaged and saved me the outrageous shipping cost that @pm3x charges. Plus they accept ALL major credit cards which can be very handy during these sudden dips of the spot price.
- Great company to order fromJeremyon 10/3/11
OverallTo all the people who are wondering if this company is legit......I have ordered twice now from Provident. I have been pleased with both shipments. They come in well protected and discreet packages. I had to wait a little longer for my second order because I paid with personal check, but the service was still great. I spoke to a customer service rep about my last order and I was told that it had just shipped, about 5 minutes later I received my 'shipment confirmation' email. Great Company, don't waste your time or money on other questionable companies......and no I am not paid extra or given perks for these reviews.
- Best in the business. I am now a loyal customer. Won't buy from anyone else.U can't on 9/30/11
OverallProvident Metals was highly recommended by my friends who also buy silver. I bought 4 rolls of silver eagles when the spot was at it's lowest price and other sites were shutting down or had already shut down. I was really looking to buy around 300 silver eagles, but decided to play it safe. I bought my eagles late Sunday night. Today, is Friday, and they arrived in the mail discretely and securely packaged. I had my son video tape me opening the packages to validate the contents of my order. Everything was there and in excellent condition! I was very surprised that they arrived this soon since the order said they were a delayed item that could take up to ten days to ship. I will now add Provident Metals to my list of friends who I trust and recommend doing business with. Thank you for the fast delivery and highest quality coins I have ever bought. This is how you run a very successful business... by doing what you say you can do. I will be back to purchase more. Thanks.
- Outstanding Service and PricesJuneon 9/30/11
OverallJust received my second order of Silver Eagles. Although this order was on "Delayed" status I received it within a few days. Discreet packaging is much appreciated.
I think Provident is the best to do business with considering reasonable shipping fees and such prompt professional service. The Silver Eagles are beautiful and I feel confident having these tucked away for the future if our economy continues its decline.
- Fast shipment, excellent packaging.jbjeepon 9/30/11
OverallThe order said delayed up to 10 days, however the coins arrived in a few days. Packaging was discrete and very well done. Coins are beautiful. Will use Provident for all future orders.

- Received in good shape and as described.Erneston 9/25/11
OverallI began with a small order of two rounds to test the waters. Provident Metals has earned my trust with their fast, professional and most importantly, honest service. I have just placed another order with them and intend to continue doing business with Provident.
- I GOTTA SAY D*MN.....VERY BEAUTIFULGeorgeon 9/6/11
OverallThis is my first time buying the silver eagle and i was amazed how beautiful these coins. I used to buy 90% junk silver but i figured i need to mix it up a lil bit. I gotta tell ya, these coins are a must to have for your collection. Shipping was very quick. I also bought from other sites before till i found this site. Provident, you're my favorite dealer now!
- sweet product, great serviceStringstrikeron 9/3/11
OverallThe 2011 silver eagles are very nice. I have ordered from Provident several times & have been very satisfied on every occasion.
- Great yet again!Ericon 9/1/11
OverallThis was my third purchase with Provident. Silver Eagles are beautiful, and at a great price with Provident.
Used to purchase from Apm*x, now I go with Provident and I'm not looking back.
- big silverAnthonyon 8/27/11
- Excellant service - Very PleasedDanon 8/20/11
OverallThis was my first bullion purchase. Before making the purchase I compared Provident to others sites. Their mark-up and shipping were more reasonable than other sites; especially those advertised heavily.
Before making a purchase, I read the reviews on this site to see what people were saying and also checked the BBB on Provident; they have a good BBB record and rating.
I ended up buying some American 1 oz Silver Eagles. I paid with a certified check and was surprised how quickly they received, processed, and shipped them. The Silver Eagles arrived quickly and look beautiful.
I am very pleased with their service and would buy from them again.
- 1 oz silver eaglesSkipon 8/2/11
OverallFirst purchase of American 1 oz Silver Eagle from Provident. I compared to others and found that Provident mark-up was fair and the shipping costs reasonable. Shipment was fast. Will absolutely be back.
- Best PricesMorton 8/2/11
OverallI have been using Coast to coast Coins for over a year. Although Provident's shipping is higher, the cost per coin is much less. I save about .50 on each 1 oz. silver eagle with the shipping added in.

OverallRest well assured PM has the best customer service and shipping out of all the different places I have bought from. I used apm3x once, and after switching to provident I haven't gone anywhere. I only buy 2011 American Silver Eagles now, and they are a great price, shipped fast, and look stunning. I told my friends about provident and now they all shop here as well. I will be buying here indefinitely.

- Lovely coin, service.Benon 3/11/11
OverallWell known silver coin.
Packaging was great.
Service was great.
I paid by check, so had to wait for it to clear. My order was shipped promptly after check cleared. Difference in price for me to wait was at the time an extra ounce so it was worth it.
Will buy from again.
- Very PleasedTimberon 2/21/11
OverallI placed my order on a Friday, came in on Tuesday, so well within 3 business days.
Condition and quantity as advertised on the web page.
Made a mistake of ordering <$1000, which incurred the state tax on the sale. However silver has gone up so much in the past week that the tax has been erased.
Will not make that mistake again.
Very pleased with the service and the product.
- Excellant serviceTimberon 2/21/11
OverallI was very pleased to receive my order within 2 business days. The product came in very good condition as described by the web page.
I did take note that I made a few flaws myself on the first order. A debit card does not count for cash discount and I ordered less than a 1000.00 which incurs a tax on the order. I will not make these mistakes again.
Overall silver has gone up already in this last 2 weeks that the tax has been erased and I am already starting to see a profit from my order.
Will use provident for all my future orders.
- Walking BeautyJasonon 2/19/11
OverallAn amazing piece of artwork. This coin is stunning.
- The best place bar none to buy PMNoelon 2/13/11
OverallI have done all the research like most people and Provident offer by far the best price BUT more importantly far the best service.
Communication is regular and shipping is immediate.
Service is ultra friendly and for Christmas my gift was Silver and not pop corn!
Hopefully Provident will always continue as they are now.
My highest recommendations.
- MagnificentBrian V. on 2/12/11
OverallI have used APM3X for awhile and there prices are higher and the shipping is standard nearly 15 dollars...It always took over 8-10 days even when there products are in stock.
I saw this site from a few places and was like let me give it a try and see. The coins came to me by mail within 3 days of the order and in plastic holders, ordered containers for em, and i was stumped like a WOW moment had hit me. Far as i am concerned PM has my business now they are swift and very reliant. To be honest at this moment im debating on ordering some Gold because of everything stated above.
Thank you PM for your service.
