When investing in Silver, It is best to start out by investing in commonly recognized coins. By doing this, you don’t run the risk of having their authenticity questioned if and when you need to sell them as you may if you have generic rounds. Below are the 3 most commonly recognized 1 oz Silver coins:
The Silver Eagle was first released by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. It is clearly marked as 1 oz FINE SILVER and has the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA above an Eagle.
