What is the Price of a Silver American Eagle Coin ?
The price of a Silver Eagle (1 oz) is shown in the upper right section of this page.
The price of a 1 oz American Silver Eagle is calculated using three components:
- Silver spot price is the price of an ounce of pure silver available for immediate delivery or delivery ‘on the spot’. It is typically determined by the best bid and offer for silver as offered by large bullion banks trading in real time throughout the world and quoted by data providers such as Thomson Reuters and Bloomberg.
- Weight and purity of Silver. Silver Eagles have a purity of 0.999 (fineness) and there is exactly 1 troy ounce of pure silver in each coin. They are produced by The United States Mint and each Eagle’s metal content, purity and weight is guaranteed by the U.S. government.
- The silver price premium is the percentage adjustment that is added or deducted from the silver spot price depending on whether a silver buyer is buying (added) or selling (deducted). The premium of Silver Eagles are determined by the costs of production, refining, fabrication, minting and the logistics of making the silver coins available for sale in the UK. The price of a Silver Eagle is also impacted by supply and demand and the amount of silver coins being bought.
In order to determine the price of a Silver Eagle, simply multiply the spot price of silver by the number of troy ounces of silver in the coin (1 ounce) and then add or subtract the current premium for the coin or coins. GoldCore’s premiums on Eagles are competitive at between 18% and 24%.
The value of a Silver Eagle is that they are highly popular and an internationally liquid, portable store of value and vital form of financial insurance. They are one of the best ways for silver buyers and investors to own physical silver. They act as a hedge and protect British silver buyers from domestic and international financial and monetary risks.

What is the History of the American Silver Eagle Coin?
Silver Eagles were first minted by The U.S. Mint in 1986 - along with the American Gold Eagle coins - specifically as investment bullion coins. Authorized by Congress, American Eagle gold, silver and platinum bullion coins provide UK investors with a convenient and cost effective way to add physical, investment grade, precious metals to their investment portfolios.
The silver coins are beautiful. The obverse features Adolph A. Weinman’s design showing Lady Liberty draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge.
The reverse shows a heraldic American eagle below 13 small stars, each representing one of the original colonies.

The coin is highly stylised and known for its high quality finish, pure silver content and historical design. The Eagle has only ever been produced in a 1 oz form. Unlike other well-known bullion coins, smaller fractional denomination Silver Eagles such as a ½ oz version were never created.
Silver Eagles are produced at The West Point Mint in New York, and have a ‘W’ mark underneath the date. You can purchase American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins (1oz) and monster boxes of American Eagles from GoldCore.
Because they are produced by the United States Mint, each coin’s metal content, purity, and weight is guaranteed by the U.S. Government.
American Silver Eagles are mass produced to help retail investors purchase silver bullion with ease and confidence. They are widely traded on the global silver markets and are therefore competitively priced and highly liquid.
The United States Mint has produced and sold over 400 million Silver Eagles since 1986, in other words, 400 million ounces of silver. This is over 12,000 tonnes of silver. Silver Eagles are widely held and well known globally so they have a huge secondary market and a large dealer network.
The 1 ounce denomination makes the coin easy to transport and carry and this divisibility may also be useful if a part of a silver holding needs to be sold in the future.
