2000 Silver Eagle
First minted in 1986, the Silver Eagle has rapidly become the most popular bullion coin in the world. We carry every year this popular coin was produced.
Featuring the compelling "Walking Liberty" design, originally created by Adolph Weinman for the 1916 U.S. Half Dollar, the reverse bears the heraldic eagle and shield of the Great Seal of the United States. Prized the world over for its universal appeal and assurance of quality, the American Silver Eagle is destined to become a classic.
Minted in one Troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver, the content of each Silver Eagle coin is guaranteed by the U.S. Government.

The First Salute Military Tradition
After years of hard work, tireless effort and unyielding determination invested in becoming an officer, it is the thrill of receiving the first salute that finally makes the accomplishment feel real. And that symbol of respect has traditionally been repaid, not merely by a return salute, but by a genuine silver dollar.
The first salute tradition dates back to the 19th century and requires a newly-commissioned officer to give a silver dollar to the first enlisted member who renders a salute. This practice carries across all branches of the military: the first salute is purchased, and the rest are earned.
One choice favored by new officers is the silver American Eagle, which has a face value of one dollar, and can be selected for a relevant recent date. Order your silver dollar now to take your place in history.
