As the newest release for 2017, APMEX is pleased to announce the pre-order for 2017 Gold and Silver American Eagles. These coins will be available in single flips, MintDirect® Singles, MintDirect® Tubes and sealed Monster Boxes, which come directly from the United States Mint.

The American Silver Eagle is the most popular Silver bullion coin in the world. Originally released in 1986, the Silver Eagle is the world's only 1 oz Silver bullion coin with purity, content and weight guaranteed by the United States government. The historic obverse design is based on Adolph A. Weinman's 1916 Walking Liberty Half Dollar, making the Silver American Eagle a favorite by many.
The Gold American Eagle holds a bit of history as well, with the original design first appearing on American Gold coins almost 110 years ago. The obverse is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens' iconic Double Eagle design of 1907 featuring Lady Liberty walking, carrying a torch and olive branch. The 2017 Gold American Eagles are available to pre-order in sizes ranging from 1/10 oz - 1 oz.
