American Silver Eagle 1 oz 2017
The American Silver Eagle 1 oz 2017 issued by the US Mint is one of the most popular silver bullion products sold today.
The front of the coin is based on Adolph Weinman’s popular Walking Liberty Half Dollar design and the reverse features the heraldic eagle design by John Mercanti. Mint production is large and premiums low. Which is why this is one of the most popular silver bullion choices in the world.
From 1986 through 2012 the US Mint produced 337,562,676 regular production American Silver Eagle 1 oz 2017 coins. The following numbers represent the total amount of Silver Eagles made in that year.
