The eagle has landed! The brand-new 2022 issue of the 1 oz American silver eagle coin, that is… We just received a shipment of 2022 American silver eagles from the U.S. Mint and we’re thrilled to offer you America’s most popular silver coin.
These silver eagle coins are in brilliant, uncirculated condition, direct from the U.S. Mint. (They don’t sell bullion coins directly to the public, but instead rely on a handful of authorized distributors like us to get bullion coins into your hands.) 2022 is the first year all silver American eagles will have an updated reverse design.
You’ll recognize the familiar obverse, Adolph Weinman’s Walking Liberty figure draped in an American flag, bearing a bundle of oak branches, with one hand held out in welcome. The stylized rising sun is just a perfect addition to the image, and the details of the folds and billows of her garments never cease to amaze us. Master artists can make silver look like a flowing gown! The obverse’s primary message, around the rim, is hard to miss: LIBERTY.
The reverse is the new Type 2 design from Emily Damstra and Michael Gaudioso, discussed in detail below. Text around the rim reads “United States of America,” One Dollar,” “1 oz. fine silver,” and E pluribus unum. (That’s the motto of the U.S., Latin for “Out of many, one.”)
Over the last two years, demand for 1 oz American silver eagle coins has been relentless. The U.S. Mint sold over 30 million in 2020, over 27 million last year. We don’t know for sure how many they’ll mint this year. We do know the best way to avoid disappointment is to get yours today!
*We pack individual coins in plastic sleeves for protection before shipping. If you order 10+ of the same coin, we’ll secure them in protective tubes before shipping.Orders in 500 piece increments ship in a sealed Monster Box straight from the U.S. Mint. Monster boxes provide the best safety and protection to your bullion during shipment when you order in bulk.
Highlights of the 1 oz American silver eagle 2022 coin:
These 2022 silver eagles are of the Type 2 design, the updated reverse first launched mid-2021. Designer Emily Damstra and artist Michael Gaudioso collaborated on this dynamic, arresting design. Take a close look. From the bald eagle’s posture and attitude, at first glance it appears to be diving on prey. Then we note the oak branch clutched in its talons. Since Roman times, oak leaves have symbolized military prowess and victory. During triumph marches, Roman generals were crowned with oak leaves symbolizing their battlefield successes. Here, though, the bald eagle doesn’t seem to be particularly warlike. Rather we imagine that, just below and out of frame there’s a sprawling nest holding this eagle’s family. The symbolism here is intriguing and multi-layered. Beating swords into plowshares? Returning victorious from battle to help defend the family in the nest? Using this symbol of victory to build something new?
We aren’t entirely certain. What we do know is that Damstra and Gaudioso’s masterwork looks amazing, full of energy and motion. Regardless of the meaning you take away from this design, you have to admit it’s absolutely striking.
Silver American eagles are among the most popular silver coins globally, and they’re permissible within IRAs for investors looking to secure their retirement savings with physical precious metals.
The US Mint first released the Silver Eagle in 1986, and it remains the official silver bullion coin of the United States. The coin has been minted in Philadelphia, San Francisco, and West Point over the years. Its weight and content are certified and guaranteed by the U.S. Mint. The lower premiums, stunning design, and widespread popularity make these coins an evergreen choice for investors and collectors alike.
