American Eagle Silver

The 2024 American Eagle one-ounce silver uncirculated coin, priced at $76, is a collector’s version of the American Eagle Silver Bullion Coin, a series initiated in 1986. Updated in 2021 to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the American Eagle Coin Program, the obverse features Adolph A. Weinman’s renowned depiction of Liberty, enhanced with intricate original details and Weinman’s artist mark. The obverse inscriptions read “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “2024.” The reverse, designed by Emily Damstra and sculpted by Michael Gaudioso, portrays an eagle approaching a landing, clutching an oak branch. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “1 OZ. FINE SILVER,” and “ONE DOLLAR.”

Enhanced security features include a unique reed pattern variation benchmarked against global anti-counterfeiting measures. Orders are limited to 10 coins per household during the first 24 hours.

Simultaneously, the United States Mint will accept orders for the 2024 American Eagle one-ounce gold uncirculated coin, with a production limit of 13,000 coins. Struck in 22-karat gold, these coins are the collector versions of the official American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins.

The obverse design, enhanced in 2021, showcases Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Liberty, depicted with flowing hair, a torch in her right hand, and an olive branch in her left. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY” and “2024.” The reverse, redesigned for the first time in 35 years in 2021, features a majestic eagle created by Jennie Norris and sculpted by Renata Gordon. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “50 DOLLARS,” and “1 OZ. FINE GOLD.”

Anti-counterfeiting measures include a reeded edge variation. Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a black clamshell case, housed within an outer presentation box adorned with the United States Mint seal and encased in a sleeve featuring a gold foil image of Liberty. A certificate of authenticity, featuring artwork of the obverse design, accompanies each coin. Initial orders are restricted to three coins per household for the first 24 hours.

The Mint says these releases underscore its ongoing commitment to quality, security, and innovation in numismatics, offering collectors meticulously crafted coins that honour America’s artistic and cultural heritage.
