Each American Silver Eagle contains one ounce .999 fine silver bullion and carries a symbolic $1 face value.

Because the law that permits the U.S. Mint to turn out American Silver Eagle classifies them “numismatic,” the Mint is allowed to sellAmerican Silver Eagle at prices above the one-dollar face value.
