Above all, as legal tender, they're the only silver bullion coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the United States Government. They're also the only silver coins allowed in an IRA.”
“Silver has historically been the most affordable precious metal. Since 1986, the United States has minted one-dollar silver coins called "Silver Eagles." Each contains a minimum of one troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver.”

All Silver Eagles are easy to buy and sell and prices are based on the market price of silver, plus a small premium to cover minting and distribution costs. You will find them available at most reputable coin dealers.
