The newest installment has finally arrived in what is probably the most famous silver bullion coin in the world — the American Silver Eagle. Except for the date change, the 2014 Silver Eagle does not differ from its predecessors, being struck from .999 fine silver and containing exactly 1 troy ounce of silver. Though some bullion coins, such as the Chinese Panda, do change designs from time to time, the design of the American Silver Eagle has remained unaltered since its 1986 introduction, and for good reason. Adolph Weinman’s design of Lady Liberty Walking was first used on the half-dollar from 1916 – 1947 and gave those coins their beauty and fame. Few argued when the design was re-used on the US Silver Eagle bullion coin — a decision proved correct by history as the design remains unchanged to this day.
