Silver Coins

Endeavor Metals Group stocks a wide array of silver coins, and one of the most requested is the American Silver Eagle. One year demand for this coin was so overwhelming that the U.S. Mint had to suspend sales. Just as the American Gold Eagle changed design, in 2021 the Silver Eagle changed their reverse design as well; designed by renowned natural science illustrator, Emily Damstra, and sculpted by U.S. Mint’s Medallic Artist, Michael Gaudioso. The Silver Buffalo Round is also one of the most requested silver bullion coins. The Native American profile head was created by James Earle Fraser’s design back in 1913 and was created from a mixture of 3 chiefs from different American Indian tribes: Big Tree, Iron Tail and Two Moons. The Silver Morgan Dollar is a coin that was minted from 1878 to 1904, in 1921 and then beginning again in 2021. It has tumultuous history in precious metals because of the Fourth Coinage Act, enacted by Congress in 1873, which effectively demonetized silver bullion. The Pittman Act, passed in 1918, then authorized the melting and recoining of millions of silver dollars and then was replaced by the Silver Peace Dollar. The Silver Peace Dollar’s design came from a competition to find a design that portrayed the idea of peace, but initially had a design that included a broken sword. The general public believed a broken sword was a symbol of defeat so the U.S. Mint concluded with the current design, by Anthony de Francisci. The U.S. Mint ceased production of these coins in 1928 and 1935, but began producing them again as a special 2021 100th anniversary commemorative coin.

U.S. silver coins are not the only notable silver coins in the market. An incredibly popular foreign coin is the Canadian Silver Maple Leaf. The Silver Maple Leaf is legal tender and has a face value of $5 CAD. The Silver Maple Leaf’s maple leaf design has not changed since 1988 but in 2014, radial lines and a micro-engraved laser mark were added as a new security feature. The most popular silver bullion in Europe is the Austrian Silver Philharmonic. This coin, since it’s introduction in 2008, hasn’t changed design and is only slightly different than it’s gold counterpart; the edge of the silver coins are smooth as opposed to the gold coin having a reeded edge. The China Silver Panda is globally loved for the precious black and white bear. When Silver Pandas began production, in 1893, the coin was 27 grams (0.95 oz.) and they were of .900 fineness. Four years later they began minting the coin as 1 troy oz. and of .925 silver. Australia has a few silver animal coins they make but the Australian Silver Kangaroo is the most notable. The reverse is of a kangaroo jumping and interestingly, has an unlimited mintage amount, unlike the Australian Silver Koalas and Australian Silver Kookaburras that have a maximum mintage of 300,000 and 500,000 respectively. Initially the Australian Silver Koalas did not have a cap for the amount of coins minted; it was only until just recently, 2018, when the decision was made. The Silver Kookaburra was launched in 1990 and then between 2006-2011, no proof coins were minted. The Perth Mint then, a year later, minted a colored 1 oz. Silver Kookaburra in 2012 for the Discover Australia coin series. It was then concluded that from 2012 and forward, the silver coin will be struck as High Relief only. High Relief coins are stand-out beautiful pieces, but any silver coin chosen adds not only variety to your portfolio but precious gems to a collection.
