What is an American Silver Eagle?
Minted by the US Mint, American Silver Eagles are sovereign coins that may serve as legal tender; though the metal content is far more valuable. Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver that is mined exclusively in the United States. Silver Eagles are produced annually.
The obverse of the Silver Eagle, designed by Adolph A. Weinman, features Lady Liberty stepping toward a sunrise with an American flag draped across her shoulders. With a design by John Mercanti, the reverse features a shielded bald eagle with outstretched wings grasping arrows and an olive branch in its talons.
The American Silver Eagle, first released in 1986, is the only sovereign bullion coin produced in the US. Because of their high production quality and beautiful design, they have become a popular choice for bullion investors around the world. The US Mint began releasing uncirculated versions in 2006 to meet the demand of investors and collectors.
What is a Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) Coin?
Coins with a brilliant uncirculated, or BU, finish have never been circulated and have a frosted sheen. They are shipped to us straight from the mint after manufacture, helping them retain the original luster with which they were produced. Provident offers a variety of BU American Silver Eagles, from limited edition coins that come with certificates of authenticity to coins dating as far back as 1986.
Are American Silver Eagle Coins a Good Investment?

American Silver Eagles provide a simple, stable method of investing in silver. You can rest assured knowing that the silver content in each Silver Eagle is pure and handled in a facility with high quality standards.

What is the Benefit of Buying Sovereign Coins?
Individuals interested in investing often hear about the benefits of diversifying their portfolios. This is why precious metals are such an attractive option. But even under the umbrella of precious metals, there are plenty of ways to continue diversifying.
One important distinction is the difference between sovereign coins and other bullion rounds. A sovereign coin is produced and backed by the government, giving it a legal tender value and making it eligible for most precious metals IRAs. A privately minted round is made by a private company, yet is still made with high-quality metals. Sovereign coins give you both the value of the metals with the security that comes from a government mint. Buying sovereign coins also gives you the option of private storage or bank storage, which can help further the diversification of your investment.
