In 1792, silver was first minted into dollar coins. Today, the number one silver bullion coin in the world is the Silver American Eagle. Silver Eagles are tangible and beautiful investments. They are .999 fine silver, the finest silver coins ever issued by the US. Each box comes sealed directly from the United States Mint. The monster box contains 25 sealed tubes (each containing 20 coins) for a total of 500 troy ounces. Picture is a likeness only.
