Types of Silver Coins

1. American Silver Eagle:

The American Silver Eagle, established as the official silver bullion coin of the USA, was first introduced by the United States Mint on November 24, 1986. These coins are created exclusively in the one-troy-ounce format; they carry a nominal face value of one dollar and are guaranteed to contain 99.9% pure silver. 

Authorized by the Liberty Coin Act (Public Law 99-61) and codified under 31 U.S.C. § 5112(e)-(h), the coin’s content, weight, and purity are certified by the United States Mint. Available in bullion, proof, and uncirculated versions, the Silver Eagle is produced in three mints:

  • Philadelphia
  • San Francisco
  • West Point

  1 oz 2023 American Eagle Silver Coin:

The design elements of this coin feature Adolph A. Weinman’s “Walking Liberty,” a classic design slightly tweaked on the obverse side. The reverse, designed by John Mercanti, features details like weight and purity alongside the Heraldic Eagle.

 2. Canadian Silver Maple:

The Canadian Silver Maple Leaf is an annually released coin. This RCM silver coin is a legal tender coin that carries a face value, but its true value is tied to the dynamic silver market. 

  1 oz 2023 Canadian Maple Leaf Silver Coin:

The Canadian Silver coin’s back holds essential details, including the year of production, the iconic maple leaf, weight in Troy ounces, and purity—all intricately pressed on the front side.  It carries a face value of 5 Canadian dollars. Since 2014, a laser-engraved micro maple leaf has been engraved as a security feature to authenticate coins.

 10 oz 2022 Magnificent Maple Leaves Silver Coin:

The 2021 Canadian Silver Magnificent Maple Leaf coin, weighing 10 oz, features Queen Elizabeth II on the front. The reverse side showcases a maple leaf design by Celia Godkins and a small laser-engraved maple leaf privy mark. The coin has a larger-than-usual diameter of 76.25 millimetres and a face value of $50, the highest for silver bullion. 

 3. African Silver Coins:

The Krugerrand, hailing from South Africa and crafted combinely by the South African Mint and the Rand Refinery, is under the ownership of the South African Reserve Bank. Debuting in 1967, it marked the initiation of a series solely dedicated to gold coins. In a groundbreaking move, 2017 witnessed the introduction of the first-ever silver coin in the collection, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Gold Krugerrand.

  1 oz 2023 Krugerrand Silver Coin:

The 1 oz Silver Krugerrand features Paul Kruger, South Africa’s first elected President, on the front. Durban Deep, a profitable mine, opened during his presidency in 1896, and he played a key role in the founding of Johannesburg. The coin’s reverse showcases a Springbok antelope, South Africa’s national animal, with details like the year, face value, and weight. The design mirrors its gold counterpart, and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange trades Krugerrands.

 4. British Silver Coins:

Since 1997, the Royal Mint has been issuing British Silver Coins, also referred to as Britannia Silver Coins. With roots dating back to 886 AD, the Royal Mint is among the world’s oldest mints, expanding globally with branches in Canada and Australia. The coin’s obverse has featured Queen Elizabeth II since its inception. 

 1 oz 2023 Britannia: King Charles III Silver Coin:

The 2023 British Silver Britannia Coins feature a new left-profile effigy of King Charles III on the front, a design tradition with no crown, crafted by Martin Jennings. On the flip side, the reverse displays the iconic Britannia, designed by Philip Nathan in 1987. Britannia holds a trident and a Union Jack shield, embodying the spirit of the United Kingdom. 

 10 oz 2021 Britannia Silver Coin:

The 2021 British Silver Britannia Coin’s front showcases Queen Elizabeth II’s fifth-generation portrait, designed by Jody Clark in 2015. The Queen is portrayed in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. On the flip side, the coin features a powerful depiction of Britannia, a symbol linked to the British Isles since Roman times. Designed by Philip Nathan in 1987, Britannia represents a defender of the aisles. 

 5. Perth Mint:

Perth Mint, a bullion mint in Australia owned by the Government of Western Australia, traces its roots back to 1899 when it was established as a branch of the Royal Mint of the United Kingdom.

Renowned for its exceptional quality, Perth Mint annually releases two types of Kangaroo silver coins in Canada: 

  • Proof coins
  • Frosted uncirculated coins 

Unlike typical silver bullion coins, these hold high value due to their rarity and membership in a long-standing series. While the Silver Kangaroo was Perth Mint’s third major silver bullion coin, following the Silver Kookaburra, Silver Koala, and Silver Wedge Tail Eagle, it holds a unique distinction as the mint’s inaugural .9999 pure silver coin.

  1 oz 2023 Australian Kangaroo Silver Coin:

Until 2023, the 1 oz Australian Silver Kangaroo Coins featured a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on the front. On the reverse side is an image of a kangaroo and the year of release. The design includes the inscription “AUSTRALIAN KANGAROO,” the “P” mintmark of The Perth Mint, along with details like the coin’s weight, purity, and the year of issuance.

 6. Philharmonics:

Since 2008, Austrian Silver Philharmonics have become Europe’s best-selling silver bullion coins, with tens of millions produced annually. These coins, denominated in euros, are legal tender only in Austria and pay homage to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the rich musical history of Vienna. These coins from the Austrian Mint guarantee weight and purity, with a face value of 1.50 euros. 

  1 oz 2023 Austrian Philharmonic Silver Coin:

Thomas Pesendorfer initially crafted the coin’s design; the front side displays the pipe organ from Vienna’s Musikverein Golden Hall and German inscriptions indicating the Republic of Austria, composition, and weight. On the reverse side, various musical instruments like a harp, violin, cello, bassoon, and Vienna horns are engraved.
